WE HAVE ACCOMMODATED THE DESIRE FOR OPEN-AIR LIVING SINCE 1995. Fast was established in Valle Sabbia (BS) in 1995 owing to the Levrangi family's desire to design and produce a new generation of outdoor furnishing solutions. Backed by over thirty years of experience, gained previously in the smelting of non-ferrous metals, the company immediately saw the need to identify a versatile material capable of breaking away the concept of outdoor furniture from the collective imagination of traditional chairs.
The cornerstone in the brand's history was in 2007 with the launch of the "Forest" collection, the company's best-seller resulting from the partnership with designers Robby and Francesca Cantarutti. A new line of products took shape, with a more sophisticated styling at the cutting edge of design, merging craftsmanship with industrialisation and styling research. In 2011, Fast conquered a new market niche with the introduction of original textile collections which marked the beginning of a dialogue between aluminium and high tech fabrics. In 2017, the brand has decided to revolutionise the very concept of outdoor furniture: this has involved a partnership with Argentinian designer Alberto Lievore, from Studio "Lievore Altherr" in Barcelona. Together, we have created three new collections, Zebra, Moai and New-wood Plan, which embrace different materials such as aluminium, stone and wood. The news in terms of research is the new "wood effect" material, it is 100% recyclable and it consists of natural fibres. Thanks to this project, the outdoor living in every season of the year and the contract furnishing will be always more crucial for the future.
The payoff "Outdoor Lifestyle" expresses our goals perfectly: to realize design solutions for whom really loves living in the open air, which make it possible to manifest oneâ€™s personality with the utmost styling and functional comfort. To propose versatile and empathic collections which encompass every season and dialogue with the context where they are involved, be it contract or residential, urban or wildly natural. To create settings in harmony with nature and that call for a total relax.
The R&D center and our designers are the engine for the proposal of innovative solutions and versatile materials. Our goal is to make the aluminum, our strong point, dialogue with other materials such as stone and wood. Very recent is the proposal of a new "wood effect" material: 100% recyclable and made up of natural fibers. The introduction, in 2013, of innovative technologies and later the transition to the organizational system of the Lean Production represent the added value with which Fast expresses its passion and its tradition of the Made in Italy. This project has improved the performances, by increasing the flexibility through the optimization of the manufacturing process, through efficiency, quality and costs reduction and by focusing on customer needs. We have always tried to get the best in terms of corporate values, innovation, product design and customer service. We have international quality certifications, obtained with rigorous and accurate tests carried out on our products. Modern and high quality elements are realized thanks to the harmonious balance between automated production system, craftsmanship and advanced technology. A team of robots handles some manufacturing techniques with the utmost precision and efficiency. The die-casting process of the aluminum allows the mass production of complex articles, but with high quality and value. The painting has a great importance too, it is made up of polyester powders fixed with special treatments for greater protection and for a weathering resistance over time.
