Since it was founded in 1999 in the Valencia town of Beniparell, the company Viccarbe has manufactured, marketed and distributed its contemporary furniture designed for both domestic and public spaces.
Its collections of chairs, armchairs, benches, sofas, tables, storage units and decorative accessories embody a contemporary lifestyle since these meet our homeware needs today. Viccarbe’s pieces are simple, elegant, innovative, multifunctional and recognised internationally. Viccarbe’s furniture allows its users to relate and interact with it in new ways.
And it effortlessly blends into any type of space, be it a domestic or public space, creating a unique, individual interior. Viccarbe’s pieces are also timeless – they live in the present but are guaranteed to look great in the future, too.
Viccarbe’s philosophy springs from the premise of meeting precise needs and being truly good designs made without wasting unneccessary energy and to a high quality and in large volumes. To achieve its goals when producing its designs, Viccarbe collaborates with such internationally renowned designers as Patricia Urquiola, Piero Lissoni, Naoto Fukasawa, Jean-Marie Massaud, Arik Levy, Vincent Van Duysen, Toan Nguyen, Marc Krusin, Jeffrey Bernett, Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, Kensaku Oshiro, Luis Vidal, Victor Carrasco, Jorge Pensi and Odosdesign.
Moreover, Viccarbe is committed to respecting the environment, choosing to manufacture its products only in Europe, while adhering to the rigorous environmentalist standards of the ISO 14001 regulations. The firm’s long-standing commitment to good design and highly innovative and sustainable forms of management have resulted in it winning numerous prizes, notably the Prince Philip award for business excellence in 2008 and the Good Design award, given the same year by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design for its Holy Day chair.
Worthy of a special mention are its bestselling pieces and its star product, the Last Minute stool designed by Patricia Urquiola and in existence for almost a decade, the Holy Day chair by Jean-Marie Massaud, Maarten chair by Victor Carrasco and two new sofas – Arik Levy’s Platform sofa and Step by Vincent Van Duysen.
