- About Us
FORMANI has evolved considerably over the last few decades – from a Dutch family business to an internationally renowned designer brand, from door handles to total design concepts, from product development to collaborations with world-class designers. It was an evolution driven by pure ambition and courage. Our motto, ‘Obsessed with details’, epitomizes everything we do, from product to process, from strategy to service. Because it is these details that make the difference between good and perfect. At FORMANI, good is the enemy of great.
We collaborate with renowned world-class designers, such as Bertram Beerbaum, Tord Boontje, Lázaro Rosa-Violán, and Edward van Vliet. We do not limit ourselves to one design movement or style. FORMANI selects its partners based on shared fundamental values – a passion for design, an eye for detail, and high standards for quality and craftsmanship. Our collaboration with Piet Boon is a prime example. The journey started back in 2009 with the famous ONE collection, which has since evolved into a true design icon. And, more than 10 years later, we are still making beautiful things together.
From villas and luxury apartments and hotels and wellness centres to restaurants and offices, our products can be found in a wide variety of settings. We love seeing how they interact with other design products to influence the atmosphere of a room or building. So we are always looking for great stories and references that illustrate the power of our door and window fittings. Share them with us, so we can use them to inspire others.
Our head office is located in the Netherlands, where our story began. However, we have been active on the international stage for many years; we operate in 50 countries worldwide. We are supported by our network of distributors and agents, which means that service and advice is never far away. And we always go that extra mile; we have our own custom workshop and, where possible, we adapt our products to comply with national standards for doors and locks. For example, we have custom lines for Scandinavia, the United States, and New Zealand, among others. This means that you will always find the perfect fit at FORMANI.
Although design is our main focus, architectural hardware is very much a technical product. Our experienced team works closely with the dealers to ensure that everything goes smoothly in this regard. They proactively contribute ideas and solve technical issues. This, incidentally, is characteristic of the entire FORMANI family. We are always available to answer your questions or to provide a helping hand with a smile, a healthy dose of self-knowledge, and a dash of humour. Feel free to get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
