Maison&Objet Paris 2020: VERGÉS, contemporary furniture with a traditional soul

VERGÉS chairs and furniture are the result of a combination of experience, vocation, quality and design. Founded in 1970 in Tortellà, a village in Alta Garrotxa (province of Girona, Catalonia), VERGÉS is a family-run company deeply rooted in the region where it is located, its landscape and traditions. Such continuance has been crucial to forge the company’s philosophy, personality and its way of working.

Such an evolution has been essential to keeping up with an ever-more demanding market and has meant using the latest technology, optimizing resources and turning the original workshop into a modern and dynamic factory that employs approximately 50 people.
