Italian-made designer furniture
et al. was founded in 1956 and immediately distinguished itself with the creation of an icon of Italian design, the armchair 001 with steel frame and interwoven wire body, an object that created quite a following in the world and that still decorates some of the historic cafes of Venice and Rome, as well as exclusive international venues. Thanks to a rich range of original solutions, et al. confirms itself as the brand of choice for the furnishing of internal and external collective spaces. Its products are recognized for having defined some of the most important contemporary creations of hotels, restaurants, and cafés.
et al. objects are born from the collaboration with internationally renowned designers, in an important and continuous exchange that allows the company to have an always up-to-date catalogue that responds to the trends of a constantly evolving market. Design, comfort, and sturdiness are the result of the combination between advanced technologies and expert hands of Italian artisans, integrating the advantages of industrial innovation with attention to detail and extensive personalization options.
Today, et al. is committed to the creation and management of a service system in favour of designers and clients who want to develop a unique interior design project. Even more significant is the expanded range of fabrics available for et al. prodcuts. These materials from renowned high-quality textile manufactuers including Gabriel, Kvadrat, Camira, Sunbrella, characterise the fabric collections chosen by et al. , which focuses particular attention on the aesthetic, technological and functional properties of the individual materials, all of which stand out for their excellent resistance and adaptability to the features of et al. products.
