altreforme is a young and innovatory brand, with deep roots based on a long entrepreneurial tradition. altreforme is established in 2008 as productive diversification of Fontana Group. The engineering sector, engaged from more than fifty years with the manufacturing of metal bodies for the most worldwide well-known and prestigious automotive companies, gives shape to a creative project exclusively intended for the contemporary design world.
Particularly light and shining aluminium sheets, usually applied in the industry, are being revived in altreforme, generating refined and high personality furnishings.
Ambitious styles, technology and exclusive patents allow to challenge consolidated shapes and to give life to difficult sinuosity, never seen before with aluminium.
International great designers newly re-create reliable production processes, technology and know-how and turn them into sensory emotions, artistic performance and...altreforme
new challenging shapes and finishing achieved aptly mastering a sophisticated material like aluminium
processes and unique techniques were developed through more than 50 years of experience in the automotive industry and transferred to furniture
products conceived for great indoor and outdoor spaces, suitable also to enhance and improve the urban design
the unique production process and the material used lighten the products
eco-friendly products conceived for a sustainable future (100%aluminium, 100% recyclable)
collaboration with architects and contract field for commissioned projects
opportunity to choose between endless colours and finishes
We provide estimates, apply expertise to the design field and give shape to completely new and different ideas which are normally impossible to realize in aluminium for those who don't have the same technological know-how as the Group do.
Create special works, furniture with a high personality, that talk about the automotive world's passion, magic and emotions. Contemporary alternatives to sculptures and art works, perfectly suitable to be integrated into the Italian design tradition.
altreforme and Fontana Group are pursuing a green philosophy. The works are entirely manufactured by aluminium, 100% recyclable and eco-sustainable; they come from non-polluting and zero environmental impact production processes.
A light, smooth and radiant material, the aluminium offers highest safety and reliability guarantees, resistance to the corrosion, total eco-sustainability (100% recyclable).
altreforme strongly believes in the respect of the environment and in the sustainability. Since its establishment altreforme invested in the shape and functional research on this material to propose to the world of the contemporary design "smart" products and projects with new, challenging and different shapes.
To guarantee the greatest qualitative level of its products altreforme selects aluminium, from 1.25 up to 8 mm of thickness, among the best alloys used in the automotive field.
Each work is manufactured through the same production cycles that give shape to the most beautiful and sinuous car bodies existing on the market.
Ideas and style developed by great international designers pass through elaborate feasibility studies, elastic strain analysis and virtual designs to be later on manufactured thanks to a leading production technology and machinery, able to measure geometrical deviations up to 2/10 of mm.
The latest production technique is joined with the expertise of highly qualified employees to guarantee an aesthetic control for top perfection. Accuracy and quality, required for the manufacturing of cars and…altreforme.
