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.

With Atim Trasformabili solutions for great compositional freedom

For over 20 years, the Italian company Atim has been studying and creating innovative solutions for the furniture industry. From its continuous research and development were born the Trasformabili , a complete line of mechanisms that make more dynamic and customizable the furniture of the house, so as to meet the needs of people during the day. The Trasformabili include a wide range of products such as tables, tops and foldaway tops, extendable or sliding: the design is really put at the service of functionality and optimal management of all the centimeters available.
Moreover, increasingly different lifestyles and the reduction of living spaces in cities all over the world require furnishing solutions that make the most of the available space.

The collection of Trasformabili is enriched with new products

The new products that enrich the Trasformabili collection have been designed to make it even easier to use domestic environments, to enrich them with new configurations and compositions and to exploit all the space available to meet the most diverse needs.
Among the new features of the line presented at the last Interzum, Sestante particularly impressed visitors with its multiplicity of movements: the mechanism allows for a sliding and swivelling top with legs that slides in different directions and depths, so as to adapt to the needs of the user. Once finished, the top closes and integrates perfectly with the piece of furniture on which it rests.
Zip and Ready have also been positively surprised: placed inside a standard drawer, these tables are equipped with a system that allows you to use only one hand to open and close them. Simply pull the front of the drawer to pull them out completely when necessary and then make them disappear again with a single movement.
The professional operators present at Interzum were also able to try out the new versions of Voilà: Voilà Chair and Voilà Chair Reverse, which give this mechanism, already much appreciated, new application and use possibilities. These transformers can be fixed to a cabinet or directly to the wall, creating an extendable table ideal for those who want to have lunch or dinner with peace of mind, sitting on a comfortable chair, either alone or in company.
At Interzum, new products were also presented in the Trasformabili +39 line, designed to bring functionality to environments where space is even more limited: these solutions require a minimum depth of 39cm of the cabinet where they are to be inserted. The new Shot +39 is a practical top that can be pulled out of the drawer, with infinite application possibilities. It fits perfectly in the living area, bedroom, bathroom or office, but it is also suitable for Motor Home, boats or small houses.  
The new solutions presented at Interzum are now on display at the official Atim showroom.
