Arflex Catalog (3.4 MB PDF)
Founded in 1947 in post-war Italy, Arflex dove immediately into new technology, specifically elastic tape and foam rubber manufactured by Pirelli. Modern designs and sensibilities were in place from the beginning. In the time since, the manufacturer has developed a collection of iconic pieces, many of which remain in production today. New designs are constantly being added to the collection as well, smartly playing on the "HISTORYCAL ARCHIVE" put into place with the SIR chair in the 1950s.
