“Delivering the right product is every company’s dream.
But what does this mean?
For us, it has always meant expressing our identity in regard to customer tastes.
And beyond the concept of pure aesthetics and decorative function, sustainability, lifespan and ethicality are fundamental.
The success of Arrmet’s products has been won – and is won every day – working within these boundaries.”
1960 | Arrmet was founded in Gorizia, producing metal furniture for communal use.
From the start, our products expressed our curiosity and desire to experiment.
Ahead of the times, we began to work in metal.
These were the years of our first experiences in tube bending using the “sand packing” method.
First destination of our furniture was the school classroom, but our industrial approach also enabled us to enter the naval supply market, a sector that favoured metal as a modern, reliable material.
1975 | We moved to Manzano, international hub for chair manufacturing.
Today Manzano is recognised as the “capital of chair-making” because for over thirty years it has been the hub of an unrivalled process of industrial development.
In the early days of this explosion, the avant-garde vision of Arrmet’s founders drove them to move their company to Manzano, its current location, and to involve designers in creating their products.
It was a great commercial success – the company produced metal chairs while everyone else was making them out of wood. Originality pays.
21st century. The dream becomes reality.
2004 | The years of the great outdoors. Enthusiasm for the open air.
There are two things that Arrmet is never short of: the desire to experiment and a clear vision of what people want. And so in 2004 we began to focus on designing and producing tables and chairs for outdoors.
Once again, our research was backed up by the experience and the commitment of knowing we had a good idea and deciding to see it through.
Today | Arrmet. There’s always something new.
Tomoya Tabuchi, Note Design Studio, Welling Ludvik, Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, Kensaku Oshiro and LucidiPevere sare just some of the designers with whom we work.
With different backgrounds, origins and styles, each of them has created a product with something new to say and a unique personality to express.
Our R&D department works closely with them to ensure each product is a compound of functionality, aesthetics and quality.
Only thus do ideas become chairs and chairs become experience, in a virtuous cycle that has been thriving on passion and curiosity for sixty years.
