OUR VALUES

Since 1961 we design and manufacture contemporary furniture that is shipped to more than 45 countries around the world.

Sincerity

We want to provide you with all the information necessary for you to feel confident and secure about choosing our products. This includes sharing with you where each product is manufactured, the designer’s approach for each piece, it’s functions, and the quality of the raw materials used.

Openness

The advantage of exporting world-wide is that we are exposed to and inspired by many different cultures. Our cosmopolitan teams reflect this diversity, and their input helps stimulate our creativity.

Audacity

We like to challenge ourselves to explore new concepts and ways of doing things. Innovation happens when we can link disparate influences to create something special and unique.
