The history of Smania factory
It all began in 1967 thanks to the creative inspiration of Alberto Smania, who worked in iron manufacturing. The company’s founder begins his adventure in the furnishing world creating his first low table.
It is but a short step from iron to wood: tables, chairs, beds, bookcases are created. All pieces of furniture were characterized by an increasingly high, sophisticated and daring aesthetic taste.
In the 70’s the taste of Alberto Smania meets the multiple identities of the wood. The lightness of the bamboo and the nuances of the briar-root give life to exclusive furniture.
80’s are the years of the polish briar-root in polyester, whose distinctive feature is the extraordinary strength. It was Smania that used it first.
In 2009 the horse, previously introduced by Alberto as a decorative element in his made in Italy furniture becomes the hallmark of the company.
The design manufacturing pay attention to each detail and combine leather and wood since 2011.
2016 is the year in which the opposite becomes new, the year of change, when the leather becomes the protagonist.
