Flötotto has been at school for 50 years. And keeps on learning every day.

Generations of students have grown up with Flötotto. With chairs with our logo embossed on the backrest. For more than half a century, we have learned what it takes to positively support future generations. Without this wealth of experience, it would be impossible for us to develop furniture for the educational sector.


Das neue Lehrerzimmer

Bereits Generationen von Lernenden und Lehrenden schätzen den Wert, die Intelligenz und die Langlebigkeit des Profilsystems. Deshalb wird es nahezu unverändert seit 1974 mit Nachkaufgarantie hergestellt. Aber wir ruhen uns nicht auf den Erfolgen der Vergangenheit aus, denn wir entwickeln das Profilsystem kontinuierlich weiter und passen es den neuen Anforderungen an das Lernen von morgen an.


It is no longer enough to put tables and chairs in rooms.

Scientific findings, flexibility and combinability in function and arrangement are topics we pursue in our daily work.

Our furniture is like clothing. It doesn’t just have to suit the room, it also has to suit the person.

The best part of school is the breaks.

Our furniture also makes a good impression in restaurants, cafés, canteens and bars.


Sustainability is when something lasts a long time.

We do not produce disposable furniture with a built-in expiry date; we make a daily companion that lasts for generations and is of use for a very long time. Because every single piece, every screw, every element can be repaired, replaced and reordered, even after decades. That also includes us continuously reducing the amount of energy and waste in our production by focusing on reuse and recycling.

We are convinced: Things that last a long time and make life better are valuable.
