The quality of a project is a fundamental value to F2.
The simplicity of its collections, both for the home and contract secors, is only apparent: their design requires an aesthetic and technological balance, a careful study of volumes and materials, a mix of features that embellish the design and an artisan know-how that is combined with the most avant-garde production techniques.
To find innovative solutions that are able to meet the demands of a contemporary lifestyle, F2 cooperates with professional designers who have specific skills in designing chairs and tables, along with the professionalism and supervision of its own in-house design division and the know how of a manufacturer that is deep-rooted in the Industrial Chair District.
All this creates a rich range of models aimed at the most varied uses of chairs and tables .
