We crossed the Atlantic Ocean more than 25 years ago to penetrate the Latin American market, with which we share language and culture. Now it's time to do the same with its North American neighbours. It is a great challenge for us with which we hope to contribute all our knowledge in designing products with a Mediterranean essence, our production values, European design and the new trends in finishes and materials that turn furniture into a well-being tool", explained the Consultant and Brand Reputation Director at ACTIU, Soledat Berbegal.

The company organized also “Hello Future! Innovations and International Successes made in Spain”, the presentation event of the new brand ACTIU UNLIMITED, which was attended by around a hundred people.


Focused on avant-garde design and innovation, the new brand encompasses the KARBON chair, a highly resistant and extremely light chair that is the result of two years of collaboration with the design studio ITEM designworks and that has recently been awarded the Red Dot Product Design 2019. Its clever design combines carbon fiber's resistance with an exclusive, elegant -almost timeless- aesthetics.

With KARBON we have succeeded in challenging ourselves breaking our limits as manufacturing company” explained Berbegal. “The result, designed by ITEM designworks, is a project that has paved the way for a new phase at ACTIU, with which we take the risk of leaving our comfort zone by creating highly-innovative products. These products will be at the core of the ACTIU UNLIMITED project”.
