Passionate producers

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

Know-how, creativity and concreteness: these are the keywords of Concepts furnishing solutions, handcrafted through the combination of selected materials and the use of the best technologies available for seating and accessories

Concepts designs and produces furnishing objects with different materials such as wood, metal, plastic, of a modern or classic genre, mainly for the contract and office sector or for specific orders.

In addition to its own line of chairs and tables, created in collaboration with prestigious designers, Concepts is also able to provide highly qualified third party production management services, support for the design, prototyping and industrialization of new items.

Technology has provided a unique possibility to those who have a project or an idea to realise: seeing it first-hand. The prototype will allow you to see your idea and, with the help of our experts, you will be also able to optimise it and improve it.

A complete and punctual service, ranging from initial consultancy to logistics, to managing the transfer to the destination, as well as on-site installation and possible packaging recovery.

Concepts acts proactively by helping you identifying at the very beginning the problems that may arise and by immediately thinking about their possible resolution.
