Studio Equipment


Since 1948, Mabef has been making wooden painter's easels with creativity and energy in support of all those who make art. Today, the company still operates with the same respect, love, expertise, and care exhibited by its founder, Albino Bruno Mariotto. 

In recent years, Mabef has paid special attention to ecological and environmental issues, and now recycles 100% of its production scrap. Through a complex crushing process, wood shavings produced by the manufacturing process are converted into wood pellets, an environmentally friendly fuel that is used to heat Mabef's facilities.

Every Mabef product carries a lifetime guarantee.
