| FASEM / MILAN INTERNATIONAL FURNITURE FAIR 2005
Fasem was established in 1976 as a craft firm specializing in leather and steel seating. In its nearly thirty years the company has created a winning blend of artisan tradition and technological innovation, quality and specialization building a wealth of image and identity so that it can rightfully take its place on international markets as one of the Italian leaders in the field of designer seating.
It is the company interest in design and research that guides this evolution and that has led us to working with new and different talents, experimenting with materials, innovative distribution methods for greater competitivity of new markets where our presence is constantly growing in a capillary way.
Five years ago Fasem launched a new project, Casa Fasem. The objective was to broaden the catalogue-product range which consists mainly of chairs, armchairs and tables. The company gradually began adding accessories, living room furniture, storage pieces and beds.
The view is that of a continually growing catalogue, a varied and articulated offering created by international designers so that you can customize your home and fulfill your dreams with the quality that has always distinguished Fasem products.
At Milan International Furniture Fair 2005, Fasem presents new and interesting items.
The entire Clip series, designed by Gianfranco Gualtierotti and Marco Penati, is a collection of chairs with and without arms, easy chair, bergčre and stool has a simple, clean look when viewed from the rear – the way we usually see a chair when it is positioned next to a table, or an armchair facing a sofa
Julia Dozsa presents Ribbon, a table available in fixed and extension versions has a steel structure with a painted silver satin finish; the steel legs are available in the same finish or covered with full-grain leather.
The new, round and rectangular PS occasional tables, by Garth Roberts, have a thin, airy and light-looking chrome-plated metal tubular structure. The protagonist of the design, however, is the leather top with an innovative tone-on-tone decoration pattern made with laser technology. The perception of the sophisticated shiny-matte leaf pattern varies according to how light hits it.
Archirivolto presents Cayman, a collection of bistro table and stool. Bistro in chrome-plated or painted steel structure, round base. Revolving stool with transparent or colored polycarbonate or full-grain leather covered seat. Chrome-plated, painted or full-grain leather covered back. Chrome-plated or painted steel disc base. Gas spring to adjust seat height. Revolving stool with transparent or colored polycarbonate or full-grain leather covered seat. Chrome-plated, painted or full-grain leather covered back.

The Fasem catalogue has several products by oustanding designers: from masters such as Oscar Niemeyer and Vladimir Kagan to names, today well-known, collaborate with the company during their debuts – such as, for instance, Ross Lovegrove, Patricia Urquiola and Karim Rashid. This policy of embracing young talents led, last year, a group of new-generation designers to meet in a workshop on the topic of new types of leather and metal furnishing accessories. And from the results of this vay of designing, directed by Studio Sigla, emerging the new interesting items following mentioned:
Ast – clothes-hanger with steel frame fully covered in hide leather by Charles O. Job –, Delhi – stool with steel frame fully covered in hide leather by Ines Paolucci and Daniele Statera –, Enea – pouff with satin silver epoxy painted steel frame, seat made of interlaced stripes of elastic steel fully covered in hide leather by Cosimo Secco –, Petalo – small table with steel frame fully covered in hide leather by Wakako Kita.
