Research and experimentation
In 1947 Carlo Barassi, Renato Teani, Pio Reggiani and Aldo Bai founded Ar-flex (flexible furnishing), which later became Arflex, a company that has been projecting shapes and technologies at a national and international level.
The company inquired into the use of elastic bands and foam in the furniture industry, making research and experimentation the keys of its production.
Among the many awards won by this company, we mention the prestigious prize "Wallpaper Design Award" in 2010 for the series of modular furniture ‘Hillside’ designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune and "EDIDA AWARD" in 2011 for an outdoor project called ‘Cloud Collection’ by Carlo Colombo. A mention of honor also goes to another bestseller piece signed by Arflex such as the sofa ‘Strips’ designed by Cini Boeri.
