Hardware for furniture, upholstery, kitchen, coatings and furnishing systems.

Furnishing Idea is the portal dedicated to the furniture and furnishing industry, designed to bring together different professionals such as architects, designers, carpenters, furniture makers and manufacturers active in the furniture market who represent the reference point in terms of innovation and quality of the product offered. On the other hand, the portal aims to provide a valid information service focused on products, projects, events and fairs and everything that revolves around the world of components, semi-finished products and accessories for the furniture industry.


The portal is divided into different sections where you can explore the different products according to different categories, get in touch with manufacturers, download catalogues to keep up with industry trends and watch videos of interviews with the best professionals and manufacturers.


In the articles section you can find all the information about the most innovative product technologies, such as furniture materials, furniture accessories and systems, furniture machinery, furniture hardware, manufactured by manufacturers with a solid experience in the field. In the companies section there is an overview of the manufacturers registered on our portal, divided by product category, where you can contact us for any request. Our portal also has a special catalogues section to allow professionals and operators in the sector to view in a practical way all the catalogues relating to the various products (furniture hardware, upholstery materials, furniture paints, etc.). In addition, to allow easy consultation of the products, our portal has reserved a product section, organized by categories, where you can find out about the technical characteristics, materials and functionality of each product. The video section, on the other hand, presents numerous video interviews given by professionals and manufacturers that report news, insights and informative content on the best technologies in the sector.


In addition, to keep you constantly informed you can also consult our Journal section which contains all the Furnishing Idea magazines dedicated to the furniture and furnishing industry, such as the edition dedicated to Sicam or Interzum, two of the most important trade fairs in the sector. The magazines can be consulted from the portal or easily downloadable in pdf format.


Thanks to the trust placed in us by many manufacturers, our portal is now recognized both nationally and internationally. In fact, there are already many internationally recognized and established companies in the sector, including the AIPEF group (Italian Flexible Expanded Polyurethanes Companies) which promotes scientific information on the use of flexible polyurethane foam in the sectors in which it is used.

Materially at Milan Design Week with the event 'The Matter of Emotions
This year, Materially will be present at Milan Design Week through a narrative structured in several stages, in different and significant places where it will propose a point of view on materials starting from the concept of wonder explored from different points of view: education, creativity and industry.

Materially will propose three material contexts, three different projects, three distinct but complementary points of view, aimed at providing a new perspective on the theme of material innovation: Wonder Matter(s) at Superstudio Più, Vivarium at the Brera Academy and Material-Minded Design at the Triennale.


Wonder Matter(s) at Superstudio Più

From 17 to 23 April, Materially is present in the spaces of Superstudio Più with Wonder Matter(s), an exhibition that addresses the concept of wonder through a sensorial, exploratory and narrative journey among materials with the most diverse compositions and applications.

Leading companies in the field of material innovation present flagship products and novelties united by functional, aesthetic and sustainable performance.

The theme of wonder provides energy to the search for material solutions capable of exciting and convincing. A sensorial blink that Materially stages using the metaphor and model of the Manufacture Playground, for the construction of an iconic landscape, recognisable and all to be explored, in which concrete material innovations become tools for play and discovery.

Wonder Matter(s) will also host a conference dedicated to the state of the art in the polymer industry.


Vivarium at the Brera Academy

From 18 to 23 April in the corridors and classrooms of the Brera Academy, Vivarium brings research and applications of bio-based materials to the public of Milan Design Week, emphasising the educational potential of materials rooted in history and projected into the future. The project extends beyond the spatial and temporal limits of the exhibition to offer panel talks with the protagonists of materials research open to the public, workshops and educational collaborations for the students of the Academy.


Material-Minded Design in Triennale

In the Agora of the Triennale, on 20 April at 11 a.m. Materially and Material Connexion will bring together their long common history in a lecture dedicated to the interconnections between materials, trends and design entitled 'Material-Minded Design: the Intersection of Trend, Sustainability and the Materials We Use'. In particular, the lecture will focus on how materials can provide concrete answers through trends and design directions, while respecting all-round sustainability criteria.
