West Flanders, Belgium
JORI BEFORE & NOW Under the name JORI, Mr Jorion began producing and creating 'contemporary seating' in Wervik in Western Flanders (Belgium) in 1963. Over the years JORI has specialised in high-class, leather, contemporary seating units, which are a perfect combination of exclusive design, optimum seating comfort and high quality. INNOVATION In the early 1970s co-operation began with internationally famous, including Jean-Pierre Audebert, and product developers such as Paul Verhaert. In the early 1990s two new young designers, Christophe Giraud and Koen Verhaert, joined the existing team. This team was also backed up by a highly effective Research & Development department, so that every new model reflects the spirit of its age in terms of design and price. PERSONALISED SEATING COMFORT JORI aims for 'Mental Comfort'. 'Mental Comfort' stands for a unique world, a world of unlimited comfort, where design and quality create a universe in which the body can relax endlessly. Almost all models are available in various seating heights, seating depths and back heights with many built-in functions enabling users to fully adjust their seating comfort to their personal requirements. The most progressive technology and the most modern design are only significant if they are placed entirely at the service of enhanced seating comfort. Driven by this philosophy, JORI remains 'your innovative partner in high-class seating'. The result of this search is a range of contemporary seats and sofas clearly carrying the JORI DNA: sophisticated design combined with unlimited customised seating comfort, styling by leading designers and executed in exclusive quality leather or fabric. AT HOME AND ABROAD As assembly company, JORI realises today, with 170 employees, a turnover of around 35.8 million EURO. World-wide JORI exports to almost 30 countries. With this JORI has grown into one of the most important European manufacturers in its sector.
