It all began thanks to the creative inspiration of Alberto Smania, who worked in iron manufacturing. His innovative journey began with him combining the iron scraps, to create his first low table. This innovative drive combined with constant research for originality and beauty, characterizes Smania even today.
It is but a short step from iron to wood: tables, chairs, beds, bookcases are created; pieces of furniture characterized by an increasingly high, sophisticated and daring aesthetic taste. In the 80's, polyester with its immense strength is added to the range of materials for furniture design. Smania was first in the industry to use it, and with its success he starts expanding overseas.
Wengé, the tropical timber, becomes part of Smania creations. Its dark shades are ideal to convey the force of the Smania design character. Along with crocodile printed leather, the search for new materials continues nonstop.
The designer Alessandro La Spada begins his collaboration with the company, drawing some of the products so far designed by Smania brothers, Alberto and Fabrizio. The horse, previously introduced by Alberto as a decorative element in his 'Made in Italy' furniture becomes the hallmark of the company.
