The design house was founded in Turin-Italy in 1930 by Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina, one of the most legendary car designer of all time.
In 1986, continuing the family design legacy, Paolo Pininfarina founded Pininfarina Extra, with the mission to expand Pininfarina design vision into other fields of design, transportation, and architecture.

All together the Pininfarina Extra group’s activities span across Industrial Design (electronics, sporting goods, furniture, equipment and machinery, consumer products, graphic design, and packaging), Architecture and Interiors (residential, hospitality, sport and commercial structures), and Transportation Design (yachts, airplanes, private jets, people movers).
