Arrmet. A history of avant-garde and vision.
Passion, Research and Innovation are the words that we mostly encounter in the long history of Arrmet.
Ahead of its time and reversing the normal evolution steps, already in 1960, the year of its foundation in Gorizia -Italia-, Arrmet uses metal as a building material for community furniture.
These are the times in which through the first experiences of tube bending using the method of “sand filling”, Arrmet produces small chairs, desks and furniture for schools. These are the days when its industrial nature, already alive from the early days, allows the company to enter the naval supply market, a sector that already appreciates metal as a modern and reliable material.
Seventies , Arrmet decides to move in the Chair Triangle, now worldwide center known for production of wooden chairs and furniture. That’s how, during this industrial explosion, in Manzano a metal furniture company, supported by avant-garde ideas of its founders, proposes a different product, original and full of technology, which gradually acquires notoriety both in the community and even in the residential and hospitality markets.
The company’s participation at Salone del Mobile since the first edition is the stepping stone for the internationalization of Arrmet, which becomes leading company for America and Saudi Arabia.
The first design collections, designed by Saccardo and Sacchetto, are presented in the 70s alongside the largest producers in the industry, it is the dream come true. From here, the multiplication of run lengths, of sales, of exports and the optimization of the industrialization of the product.
The different directional managements of Arrmet keep the curious and innovative nature by continuing to tell always something new, product after product, year after year, reaching new market needs, always ensuring Aesthetics, Functionality, Quality, Research, Economics, and especially writing their own history based on experiences.
Area Declic brand, created in the 90s and leader until 2016, walks a design and experimentation path, rich in colour, plastics, research and technology at high levels. Protagonist and best seller of the period is certainly Pocket, which even today, upon the completion of its 20th birthday, remains the irreplaceable folding chair in our catalogue and one of the best ever designed space-saving products.
The acquisition of Debi brand, leading manufacturer of upholstered chairs for the contract market, goes back to 2012. Combining industrial production ability, tailoring and aptitude for customization to artisan levels, the complementary nature of Area Declic and Debi makes the Arrmet group an ideal partner for contemporary designers.
2017 returns proudly the main scene to the brand ARRMET, bringing together the best collections created from the 90s under the brands Area Declic and Debi, in a single catalogue.
Now as then heart and passion remain unchanged, but with extra attention to the customers and the requirements of use destinations. We design seats and tables that meet the market demands, never betraying the values that have made our history.
