MORETTI COMPACT was founded in the early 1970s by Angelo and Gisfredo Moretti, mainly creating double bedroom and lounge suites for export markets. Towards the middle of the 1970s, anticipating domestic market trends, design became orientated exclusively towards the area of children’s bedroom suites. After a decade or so of devising and manufacturing state-of.the-art solutions, Gisfredo Moretti, who had become the sole manager of the company, began to enter new market sectors, making the most of newly introduced technologies and the typical designs of the period. Yet another development occurred at the start of the 1990s, when a new generation of Morettis joined the company, as well as other valid staff members, experimenting innovative solutions combining design and practical use. Current production, in compliance with international safety laws, supported by technological and computer-based development, never seen before, reflects new furnishing concepts in its shapes and colours, taking MORETTI COMPACT into the Third Millennium as a leading company in the children’s furnishing industry. The manufacturing set-up currently numbers 16 production plants, for a total of more than 40,000 sq m of indoor space and a staff of 200.

Sartorial flexibility and perfection of details are the protagonists of the Smania project in Qatar: the new Shaza Kempinski Doha
From the encounter of contemporary luxury, history, traditions and values of the Middle East, a new jewel of hospitality has been created by the New York studio SOMA Architects.
Located in the cultural district of Doha, within walking distance of the Islamic Arts Museum and the new National Museum, the 20-story building stands out for the particular pattern of the glass facade, homage to Mashrabiya, typical elements of Arab architecture that provide a Strong regional character to the project.
Pascall + Watson Architecture studio has designed the interiors of the 172 hotel rooms, including three theme restaurants, the ‘Shalimar’, the hammam, the spa, the gym, the swimming pool, the business rooms and the bar on the rooftop.
Smania, along with the experience of the contract industry, is among the protagonists of indoor and outdoor furniture with upholstery, lighting, decorative objects and accessories.
The “Made in Italy” design welcomes the guests in the lobby with the ice shades of the Mister P sofas and the Dorothy armchairs.
The handmade culture is represented in the presidential suite with the Madison desk and the Virgi console in wengè, the Jana Plus Capitonnè armchair, the Beverly series of upholstery in sober and delicate shades.
The conference table in wood and leather and the Byron table furnish the meeting rooms of the business centre, while the Costa Rey outdoor collection distinguishes the panoramic pool area on the top floor.
The Shaza Kempinski Doha will soon be a key determinant of the skyline of a city full of ferment and Smania will become part of a project that is ready to satisfy the most demanding guests in search of a luxurious stay and a sophisticated design.
