Arflex began operations in 1947. Aldo Bai, Pio Reggiani, and Aldo Barassi - a group of technicians from Pirelli - teamed up with a young architect named Marco Zanuso and began to experiment with the use of foam rubber and elastic tapes for the furniture industry.
Zanuso's experience with upholstery industrialisation, namely the application of new materials to new technologies, was a catalyst to Arflex's forward-looking vision. From Gold medal-winning domestic furniture such as the Sleep-o-matic sofas and Fourline armchairs, to commercial seating designs for the automotive industry, Arflex strove to establish itself at the forefront of furniture design.
