Each Piaval collection harbours a hundred years of experience in making wooden seats, the guarantee of a genuine “made in Italy” product, and the dedication and hard work of this international brand that has been investing in research and quality for four generations. Piaval’s story began in 1919, when it first opened as a small workshop in Udine, Italy. It has evolved thanks to its insight, perseverance and passion. Today, Piaval is a dynamic, modern company, specialised in manufacturing chairs and tables for the international large-scale contract and healthcare sector.
Design, comfort, excellent materials and functionality are the common denominators of a Piaval product, put together by famous international designers. Piaval collections are born out of a structured approach to technique, function, use and taste. Thanks to their technological skill, in-depth knowledge of materials, internal production chains that bring together highly specialised departments, and constant investment in research and development, each and every collection is created with a focus on the customers and their needs.
Every product is versatile in terms of upholstery and finishes, flexible in the level of customisation, and adaptable to the specific needs of each project. Piaval is UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 certified. Since 1999, the safety and durability of its products has been certified by CATAS, the largest Italian institute for certification, research and testing within the wood and furniture industry. Some 35 models have recently been certified by Ergocert, the ergonomics usability and research body.
This attests their conformity to the highest ergonomic and usability standards. Piaval is fully committed to the environment and sustainable development in every aspect of its business: 100% of the heat it requires for drying processes comes from clean energy sources, thanks to the solar panels it has installed. It uses paints that are strictly water-based in all of its production cycles. On request, Piaval products can be FSC® certified, made using wood obtained exclusively from protected and controlled forest areas.
