History:
The Forges of Strasbourg were pioneers of French metal furniture established in 1919, The Forges of Strasbourg, were at the origin of the manufacturer of metal made furniture in the machine era.
In 1926 the company creates the brand “Strafor” ( a shortening and combination of the words ‘Strasbourg’ and ‘Forges’) to market all types of metal and industrial furniture.
Stamped in the steel, the first signature appears under the name “Forges de Strasbourg”, in the 20s, with the creation of the Strafor brand, it became an oval plate, obviously placed in the pediment of the furniture, the labels bearing the words “Strafor, Forges de Strasbourg”.
During the 1950s the company encountered economic difficulties and sought stability in 1974 by joining forces with the US company Steelcase Group through a joint venture giving birth to Steelcase Strafor.
By 1999 the legend Strafor was over and Steelcase Strafor was 100% bought back by Steelcase Inc.
