Quinze & MilanFounded in 1999, in Belium, Quinze & Milan began producing pieces that would encourage and continue to encourage lovers and newcomers of the brand to turn dreams into reality. Apart from their own custom designs, the company produces and distributes the work of guest designers and architects so that all spaces may be filled with meaning, energy, creativity, and a modern design meant to challenge the conventional side of minimalism. Since the beginning, the company has used the slogan "Creator of Atmosphere" to imply that the furniture, itself, was not meant to be aimed at anything; but, meant to be medium that helps to illustrate a wild, sexy, easy-going, loud, and outrageous lifestyle. With such a strong and carefree outlook on the world of design, their bold and avant-garde designs have turned the company into the pop star, bad boy in the world of furniture design. Dare to be crazy, fun, and stylish with Quinze & Milan.
