One of the brands that regularly take part in this important international event is Longhi. This famous Italian company was born in the city of Meda, to the north of Milan, the area known as the heartland of the Italian furniture industry. The brand was founded in the 1950s as a producer of wooden furniture, and has remained committed to the pursuit of craftsmanship to ensure the highest quality standards. Today, Longhi collaborates with leading international designers to develop pieces that make optimal use of the skills and expertise provided by its team of highly skilled artisans and technicians.

The main focus of Longhi is contemporary living. The company is always mindful of changes in taste and tendencies, but it remains faithful to Italian manufacturing traditions and style. The use of precious materials, attention to details and ongoing research are the main values that characterize all the creations by Longhi. Passion and elegance go hand in hand with harmonious combinations. Each piece by Longhi is hand-made and very often is also made to measure. All marbles, stones and leathers have European Quality Certificates. All the materials are specifically selected and processed with natural environmentally friendly proceedings. Precious high quality materials are transformed into unique elegant pieces that are 100% Made in Italy.

One of the most famous models by Longhi is probably Elda Armchair. This model was created by Joe Colombo in 1963. In his brief but brilliant career, Joe Colombo created a series of innovative designs which made him one of the most influential Italian product designers. Joe Colombo loved working with plastic and other progressive materials. Elda was the first large chair to utilize a self-supporting frame in fibreglass. Its soft cushions, rotating base and generous proportions provide a great deal of comfort. Elda Armchair reminds you a safe cocoon. Besides, the sound is muted for the person sitting in this comfortable armchair. Elda Armchair is produced in multiple colours of leather.
This is one of Colombo’s first pieces of furniture designed and named after his wife Elda. The Elda lounge chair is exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and the Louvre in Paris. Elda Armchair soon became the real trademark of Colombo and he loved to sit on it with his inseparable pipe.
Elda Armchair looks so futuristic that it was featured in the film The Hunger Games and it was also picked as the seat of choice for science fiction series Space 1999.

During the last edition of Salone del Mobile, audacious and eclectic Italian designer Alessandro La Spada presented two new pieces created for Longhi. The designer is well known for his dreamlike suggestions, attention to detail and experimental functionality. He proposed Tiles, the coffee table and Fold, the couch.
Fold sofa’s real novelty is a detail, precious and unexpected, that sends us back to the sixties but at the same time is perfectly balanced with modern luxury: transversal cuts along the external upholstery that reveal shiny metal sections.
