THE YEARS OF DIVERSIFICATION
THE RIGHT PRODUCT FOR EVERY DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL
Lagostina starts a process of product diversification, seeking to meet the needs of the various distribution channels. The “Classico” range and “Moon Line®”, the higher end, are complemented by the more economical “Cadette”, targeting the mass market channel. The company consolidates its presence abroad, especially in Japan, Taiwan and South East Asia in general. The pressure cooker comes with a new function: steam cooking. The products are perfected by technologies, as is the case of the triple Lagoplan® base, and they stand out for their design, ergonomics and originality. Another iconic product is launched in 1986: Pastaiola ®, the pot to cook and drain pasta. In 1987, the evolution continues with the introduction of Slippy, the first stainless steel pan internally coated with a non-stick finish. In 1989, Modia is launched, the first range of “Accademia Lagostina” by Giugiaro, who shares the functionalist concept with the Lagostina brand: objects that are beautiful as well as useful in day-to-day life. In 2001, Lagostina celebrates 100 years, underlining the importance of people, their values and their dedication to hard work. Without the great human capital that is behind the company, this worldwide success would not have been possible.
