Piaval is a global representative of the most authentic “Made in Italy” values. Its story began in 1919, when a small workshop was opened to produce hand-crafted wooden chairs, in the heart of the Italian Chair District. One hundred years of history, the dedication and passion of 4 generations at the helm of the company, the successes and constant drive to innovate have turned it into a structured, modern concern, specialised in manufacturing chairs and tables for the international contract and healthcare sectors. Its projects are born from collaborations with famous designers and combine design and comfort with fundamental aspects such as ergonomics, usability and safety. Piaval offers its consolidated know-how, comprised of extensive experience and skill. The entire production process takes place at the company to ensure consistent quality and practical solutions. Materials are all selected with the same meticulous attention that motivates the choice of the design. Together with colours and treatments, they can be matched by architects and interior designers to tailor each model to their specific requirements. Piaval is strongly committed to the environment and sustainable development. All products are made using environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing processes. They can be FSC certified and manufactured using wood obtained only from protected and controlled forest areas. Piaval models are certified by CATAS, the Italian institute for certification,research and testing in the wood-furniture sector.
