Ora Office has been an Italian manufacturer of office decor and partition walls for more than seventy years. Until 2015 it was known as ORA Acciaio; over this long period it has grown and innovated while remaining faithful to its vocation/choice of producing top of the range office furniture featuring refined details and finishes, always in line with contemporary trends in terms of innovation, design and comfort.
Founded in 1936, in the post-war years it specialised in the production of furniture and accessories for schools, public authorities and communities. In 1960 it opened facilities at Pomezia and changed its name to Ora Acciaio; since then it has designed and produced partition walls, for which, forty years on, it is now a leader in the trade. The company cooperates with designers to manufacture products that have become benchmarks for the industry
A distinguishing feature of Ora Office has always been mastery of its processes and precise interpretation of the special features of the materials used. The experience of its labour force is fundamental. Fingertips that sound surfaces and eyes that capture the secrets of the materials, each with its own story to tell, encapsulate knowledge carefully cultivated and protected with pride.###
To manufacture quality products it is essential to continuously employ research and experiment new solutions, integrated with the necessary awareness of the importance of sustainability.
Ora Office has a well coordinated team of design and manufacturing professionals dedicated exclusively to product research and development.
