Founded as Figli di Giovanni Galimberti, Flexform initially specialized in the production of lacquered and upholstered furniture. In 1959 the name changed and the focus of production turned to high contemporary design featuring work by designers such as Cini Boeri, Joe Colombo, Sergio Asti, Rodolfo Bonetto, Paola Nava, Antonio Citterio, Gabriele Mucchi, Giulio Manzoni, Mario Asnago, and Claudio Vender. Notably the inventive design work of architect Antonio Citterio led not only to the collections of small armchairs and accessories but also to a range of large sofas – warm islands of comfort consisting of variously sized modular elements that radically changed the concept of socializing and inhabiting space. Such collections – Long Island, Groundpiece, Status, and Resort are staples for the Flexform brand. The U.S. agent for Flexform is Antonella Cremonesi / Tel & Fax 1 718 834 1003,
