A COMMON BOND

Since 1978, JANUS et Cie and its stellar roster of designers have become a kind of family, sharing a common goal of design excellence. When the Poltrona Frau Group and Haworth agreed to acquire the majority share of JANUS et Cie--which will join Haworth’s Lifestyle Design division alongside the brands Cassina, Cappellini and Poltrona Frau--that family grew exponentially. While JANUS et Cie continues to operate independently (its founder Janice Feldman retains a significant equity stake in the company and continues to serve as its CEO), it will be part of a group of companies with equally august histories: Poltrona Frau was founded 104 years ago; Cassina 89 years ago; and Cappellini 70 years ago. Mr. Rinero playfully referred to JANUS et Cie, founded 38 years ago, as “the little sister” in the group, but the company and its “big brothers” are united in their commitment to innovation and leadership in design.

A MARRIAGE OF ROYALTY

When JANUS et Cie reached an agreement to join the Lifestyle Design division of Haworth and Poltrona Frau Group, Janice Feldman, the company’s founder, said, “We now stand shoulder to shoulder with some of the most prolific modern designers in history.” Haworth, founded in 1948, and JANUS et Cie, founded in 1978, have both remained family-owned and share a commitment to design leadership. JANUS et Cie, with 16 directly-owned showrooms and 40 sales offices around the world, employs 240 people, while Haworth serves markets in more than 120 countries through 650 dealers and employs 6,500 people. Haworth’s acquisition in 2014 of the Poltrona Frau Group, which includes the venerable Italian furniture brands Poltrona Frau, Cassina, and Cappellini, considerably expanded the company’s reach in the international luxury furniture market. And now its acquisition of JANUS et Cie increases that reach even farther, extending it into the premium contemporary outdoor and indoor furniture sector.

As Janice Feldman noted, “The solid and respected global scale of these companies will facilitate our rapid and long-term expansion plans, while maintaining our established level of incomparable service, integrity and performance now fortified by the common code that this new family of companies shares—embracing legacy and valuing its contributors. Our remarkable team has succeeded at extraordinary levels, operating today as an industry leader in the residential, hospitality, contract, site and marine sectors. As acclaimed innovators, we bring forward each piece of our 6,000-item offering as an example of superb design and superior craftsmanship. Within all divisions of Poltrona Frau Group and Haworth, we are fully committed to taking maximum advantage of our shared resources and priorities, and together, we will work enthusiastically every day to uphold our position as The Definitive Source for Site, Garden and Casual Furnishings.”

KINDRED SPIRITS

Our successful collaborations with renowned contemporary designers and architects including Michael Vanderbyl, the Italian architect Paola Navone, Jorge Pensi Design Studio in Barcelona, Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, Gabellini Sheppard Associates, and Rios Clementi Hale Studios have produced award-winning designs that bring to market cutting-edge solutions for all environments, as with Rios Clementi Hale’s Rio collection of benches, a custom design created for the Tysons Corner Center that has become a favorite choice for site design.

WELCOMING AN ICON

JANUS et Cie has engaged the renowned Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni to develop exclusive outdoor collections for the luxury furniture market. His signature minimalist style, which blends purism with a sophisticated human component, can be found in esteemed public and private spaces worldwide. Combining Lissoni’s distinctive architectural vision and JANUS et Cie’s exceptional craftsmanship, the first collection is certain to push the boundaries of the contemporary aesthetic in both commercial and residential outdoor and indoor living.
