A slice of history...
The story of the company begins in Paris, 1953. At that time, the company was manufacturing kitchen furniture but soon started to enter the bathroom furniture market because of its rapid growth.
In the 1970s, LIDO had made a reputation for itslef and was known for its innovative bathroom furniture designs, offering both great practical aspects and looks. The brand was the first
French contender to think designwise : by opposition to the general vision at the time, where people were only seeing bathrooms as a convenience place, LIDO had the will to consider the bathroom area as a wellbeing sanctuary, prone to relaxation and pampering. This thinking is still alive today, after nearly 60 years of company history.
Since 2001, the company moved to a new production site, a few miles away, East of Paris. Every service is now fully integrated, from product design to production, assembly, customer services and delivery. Production methods allow LIDO to use the most up to date technology while applying the company's historical French know-how and manufacturing experience.
57 years of know-how!
From its early days, LIDO has prioritised quality over price and this remains behind every brand decision.In the 80s, the company has denied over productivity methods and has chosen to keep high quality standards by keeping a local site in the Paris area, where labour forces are expensive and extremely skilled.
Every piece of LIDO bathroom furniture is witnessing the knowlegde and competencies of dedicated staff. The production plants are extremly modern, yet, finishings remain hand-made and quality control is operated at once by LIDO's teams. The choice of materials (such as LIDO's ceramics, Solid Surface Staron or beautiful marbles) also illustrates the company's passion for detail, quality and beauty.
LIDO's stamp : trendy yet classy
The unique style of LIDO's current collections is the designer Patrick Lignon's work. Hisinspirations come from travelling, a passion for architecture and for everything technologically advanced. His original creations boast contemporary designs with luxurious materials to offer furniture with a strong identity and producing somewhat magical athmospheres.
A bathroom for every personnality
With its avant-garde thinking, LIDO has reached its aim to elevate the bathroom to the status of central habitation point; an intimate space where one can unite body and soul and take time to fully regenerate. Every bathroom is fully customisable to reflect the personnaily of its master : for this, LIDO offers a whole range of designs, colours, dimensions, 'made-to-measure' services or even personnal printing.
Time resistant pieces
For comfort to last, furniture must resist time, light, humidity and daily wear and tear. LIDO is carefully selecting materials and studying possible harmfull mishappenings in order to maximise its products'resistance. Quality of the materials must meet LIDO's standards from production to delivery to the client, and daily use.
Using this same thinking pattern, LIDO strives to produce goods that will adapt to its clients'lifestyle - not the contrary! For this reason, mirrors can be equiped with anti-fog systems,lights have been optimised to put make-up on, drawers have been studies to fit standard hairbrush sizes, and other personnal toiletries.
With modular furniture, choices are numerous and imagination is the limit. Furniture are delivered pre-built in order to ease bathroom fitting (that should yet be performed by a professional). Vanity tops are prepared and pre perforated for selected vessels and taps.
