Emu was founded in Umbria in 1951. During the 1960s EMU realized that
it had a natural talent for the manufacturing of outdoor furniture, in
which it could make the best use of technology, cultural heritage and
local know-how and skill in working with metal.
In the 1980-90s Emu became the leader in the garden furniture sector,
producing also one of its greatest successes, the Rio chair, selling
8,000,000 pieces since it was introduced.
During the last years, the Italian firm began repositioning its brand
following the development of innovative and exciting products in
collaboration with some of the best international designers.
The 2010 marks a significant re-launch for the Company, thanks to the
product diversification into three lines: Design, Contract and Garden.
This winning strategy helped considerably the Company to overcome the
critical state of the world economy.
