How it's made

Artifort stands for furniture that lasts a lifetime. In many cases it passes down through generations. The secret lies in the use of high quality materials and in our skilled employees. The craftsmanship of our upholsterers, welders, woodworkers and seamstresses is at a high level through years of experience and in-house training of our younger employees.





Technical possibilities

Our production is both industrial and small-scale. Many young designers come to Schijndel to test their ideas and are amazed at the technical possibilities , just like Pierre Paulin when he produced his first bucket chair at Artifort in 1959.




Artifort has invested a great deal in its production facility in recent years. We believe in sustainability and in designer furniture that lasts for generations. The quality of our chairs and sofas is so good, you can have them reupholstered ten or twenty years later. We replace the seats and cushions with sustainable produced alternatives. It's a total refit. Once the chair has been reupholstered, it looks as new and becomes a real eye-catcher.


When you see how a Ribbon® is upholstered, you believe in quality. The construction of a Ribbon® is pulled apart and rebuilt in steps with foam and rubber at the right pressure. The love for shape and beauty is what Artifort is all about.
