Concepts by Braida operates in the heart of the Chair District of Manzano (Udine). Marco and Lorenzo Braida were “born among the chairs”, as their first home was the office of the first chair factory of their father Marino, who started his job as a worker when he was 14, and then opened his first business with his three brothers in 1959.
From manufacturers of chairs designed by numerous international designers, including for example the Norwegian Jan Sabro, in the last 10 years we have become manufacturers of custom-made furniture solutions, acquiring a transversal and complete experience on materials, finishes and processes that we are able to make available to the most creative designers.
We can produce prototypes, small series but also orders of thousands of pieces and / or several models at the same time, our “record” was the production of 40 models made for a single project, the Sofitel Tour Blanche Hotel in Casablanca, under the strict supervision of Sofitel’s architects and the general contractor, to whom we also presented other partners for complementary products.
Bespoke is our vocation, eco-sustainability our commitment
We provide our creativity, the best technology and the know-how of the Chair District to make even the most difficult idea possible. If ideas have no limits, why should reality have any?
Since 1959, at the service of architects, interior designers, and general contractors
If you are an architect, an interior designer or a general contractor, you know how important it is for your work to find a company capable of giving you quick answers on the feasibility and costs of the projects you are involved in. It will also be essential for you to be able to combine design and safety while respecting the deadlines and the given budget.
Concepts assists designers with ad hoc consultancy during the conception phase.
Customising and making an environment unique in order to obtain maximum production economy is the goal we like to achieve.
How we can help you

Italy's first benefit company in the seating sector
We developed FURNITURE FOR FUTURE, a project focused on environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

Collaboration with Studio Micheli
In 2019 starts the collaboration with Simone Micheli Architectural Hero, the prestigious architecture and interior design studio with offices in Florence, Milan, Puntaldia (Sardinia), Dubai, Rabat and Busan.
Micheli has chosen Concepts thanks to the extreme production flexibility, the ability to produce with different materials and to the “just in time” service. Dozens of possible variants for each model that become hundreds of versions when combining coatings, wood and metal finishes.
That is how the collection GOOD is born.
LIGNANO SABBIADORO (UD)
«Their professionalism and their ability to understand our needs without hiding behind the standard is what won us over. They carefully developed the project according to our demands. Since I always have a look at the details, I can say that they use quality materials and the sewings were simply perfect and Made in Italy. The renovation goes on year by year, and has also the advantage of offering our clients something new each time they come back».
«Before reaching the final prototype, multiple attempts are usually needed. Instead, when I saw the product made by you, I said “perfect” because there were no other words to say».
