RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
The R&D department was founded in early 2016 within Filippi 1971 to assist customers with their technical needs as well as to design and develop new solutions in-house. Among the exclusive products born from the incessant research work are VittEr®, a new generation laminate that is fire-retardant and antibacterial, and Pure White, the white stripe that characterises the gaming table tops made by Filippi 1971.
In 2017, Filippi 1971 expanded its product range by inaugurating the new Moitech® department, which aims to be your partner for high-tech solutions and to work with you to develop innovative products. Recently, we filed a patent for Armour technology, which makes solid wood lighter and stronger than what is possible in nature. In addition to this, there is the creation of technological multilayers – Augmented Materials – which combine different types of wood with composite materials.
In 2018, Filippi 1971 started to implement an internal circular economy project called Dorvem.
CIRCULAR ECONOMY AND DORVEM PROJECT
FILIPPI 1971 SUSTAINABILITY
ZERO FORMALDEHYDE EMISSION
Filippi 1971 exclusively produces VittEr ®, a durable compact laminate certified with zero formaldehyde release.
Filippi 1971 is actively engaged in launching a circular economy project that foresees, at the end of its life cycle, the transfer of VittEr ® to the company that will take care of the recycling process and the reconstitution of the material into other products.
VittEr Design ®, line of furnishing elements made entirely in VittEr ®, uses only recycled packaging. Moreover, the realization of the boxes follows a certified process of zero CO2 emissions (Zero Carbon Footprint).
The production process of VittEr® doesn’t use glues or resins, but only raw materials coming from certified sustainable chain of custody. Moreover, in all Filippi 1971 departments there are no boilers that eliminate any waste materials, releasing no further substances into the air.
2018 | DORVEM PROJECT
Since 2018, Filippi 1971 is internally developing a project related to circular economy with the aim of reducing the environmental impact and increasing efficiency in the use of resources and recycling of products.
All Filippi 1971’s processes are implemented using the available resources in the best possible way. An example is the realization of VittEr Design furnishing accessories: not a part of VittEr sheet is wasted.
The recycled VittEr® material is conferred to the Dorvem project with which, together with pulverized wood and other materials, a mixture suitable for various purposes is formed.

SOLUTIONS FOR INNOVATIONS
2017 | COMPOSITES DEPARTMENT
Inauguration of the new department dedicated to the production of composite objects called Moitech®.
2019 | NEW ACTIVITIES
Sail battens are produced for the nautical sector, while safety belt anchorage beams are produced for the automotive sector passing through FEM analysis.
Other products include simple kitchen tops or tops with integrated sinks, lightweight doors and lightweight bed frames.
Start of the circular economy project.
2020 | PATENT ARMOUR AND AUGMENTED MATERIALS
Armour technology makes solid wood lighter and stronger. Technological multilayers – Augmented Materials – are produced, combining wood species with composite materials. Lightweight tables, rifle butts, baseball bats, work tool handles and civil engineering products are initially produced.
The presence of two 3D printers allows Moitech® to offer prototyping and production on demand.
