Faram stands for excellence in the design and creation of furniture solutions for office environments, a vocation that has made the history of the company and, since the seventies, of the whole industry.

From its beginnings in 1957, Faram has asserted itself in international markets with groundbreaking proposals for quality, functionality and technological innovation.

The industrialization of design with a tailoring approach, together with the cooperation with architects of international fame and prestigious architectural practices, has enabled Faram to realize important projects (among which the McLaren Technology Centre in the United Kingdom, the Agbar tower in Barcelona, the Swiss Re tower in London, the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai), that are considered out-and-out architectural icons.

Faram today represents a reference point for creating flexible and captivating working environments, where the person and individual needs play a central role.
