In the spirit of simplicity, we manufacture functional and industrially made products for everyday use. In this connection, it is very important to us to combine shapes, materials and production techniques with one another intelligently. We are just as inspired by using new production technologies for familiar products as by using traditional manufacturing practices for totally new products.

In the process, we synchronise our concept development with independent designers who bring in their own designs and ideas. Above all, we deliberate together on just what typifies a particular product. Due to this dialogue fascinating new products have emerged.

Authentics is a company of the Flötotto family. We are the fourth generation creating furniture and household furnishings. This means that you can count on the accustomed superior quality of our services and our products with every purchase you make.
