Artifort

In 2015 Artifort celebrated its 125th anniversary. Each year, our chairs, tables and sofas find their way to the homes of design lovers around the world. It all started in 1890 when Jules Wagemans started a business as an upholsterer in Maastricht.
Artifort stands for furniture that lasts a lifetime. In many cases it passes down through generations. The secret lies in the use of high quality materials and in our skilled employees. The craftsmanship of our upholsterers, welders, woodworkers and seamstresses is at a high level through years of experience and in-house training of our younger employees.
Artifort stands for timeless design. Design that endures. Design that is authoritative. From Pierre Paulin and Geoffrey Harcourt to René Holten and Patrick Norguet. Artifort means top-quality design by top designers.

Flos lampade: artistiche innovative lampade creative

Flos

For fifty years Flos have been crafting objects of light and shedding brightness on generations of dreams.
For us, light is the substance for expressing new ideas and illuminating unexplored emotions. We write the future, reading our past and expressing the present, in a continuity of positive challenges and bold choices that have shaped our image and identity.
Our history has taught us to fan the flames of provocation with research into new poetic notions of functionality.
Trusting our intuition has always allowed us to create products that become icons, establishing new typologies and innovative archetypes.
Connecting with masters of design. Discovering new talents. Commanding high technical and technological status. Staying tuned into mass culture. These qualities always place us at the cutting edge.
Experimentation opens the way for us to use revolutionary materials – as in the past with Cocoon – and hi-tech solutions, today represented by OLEDs and eco-sustainable materials.
By conceiving new languages around light, we chart new aesthetics and freedoms for living.
Our lamps, of yesterday and today, never fail to be serious about their sense of play and irony.
On the fine line that divides and unites art and design, craftsmanship and industry, the limited edition and larger scale manufacturing, an individual’s idea and the collective imagination. That’s our place. That’s where you’ll find us.

History:

Vitra was founded in Weil am Rhein in Germany in 1950 by Willi Fehlbaum, owner of a furniture store in neighboring Basel in Switzerland. In the following years, Fehlbaum acquired the rights to work by Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson.

After a fire in 1981 destroyed the Vitra factories, British architect Nicholas Grimshaw was called to design a new factory. Next to the aluminum room, ready for production only six months after the fire, another production plant was built in 1986 by the Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza. In 1989 it was Frank Gehry’s turn to design another building next to the first two. Gehry himself also built the “Vitra Design Museum”, originally intended to accommodate the private collection of furniture by Rolf Fehlbaum, owner of Vitra.

In 1993, Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid added a fire brigade that today hosts a collection of chairs in the Design Museum. In the same year a conference pavilion was designed by architect Tadao Ando, ​​Ando’s first work outside Japan.

In 1994, Vitra’s administrative staff moved to the new headquarters (always designed by Frank Gehry) at nearby Birsfelden (Switzerland), while Alvaro Siza added the shop to Weil am Rhein. It is in the same venue that in 2000 a dome geodetic was designed by the American architect Buckminster Fuller in 1975 and is now dedicated to events and exhibitions, while in 2003 also a design service station by Jean Prouvé, architect and designer French.
