Like many success stories we’ve heard before, FLEXFORM started as a family business in the sixties, in the Brianza manufacturing district, in the Northern part of Italy.

This region has a rich history of being a concentration of great artisan manufacturers of padded furniture since the early 1900s. Moreover, being very close to Milano city, it had access to the best creatives from the industry, collaborating with many architects, designers, and artists, and being able to create industrial designs using innovative materials way ahead of the rest of the world.

It all started in 1959 when the Galimberti brothers opened an artisan workshop, called “Flexform di Galimberti”, which specialized in the production of upholstered sofas and armchairs. In the following years, their furniture pieces were present inside the most prestigious villas and historical palaces from Milano to Lake Como, becoming a well‐known name in the industry.
