Everything began in a small carpentry workshop. The initial project involved crafting wooden benches for the Avenida cinema in Barcelona, foretelling a prosperous future for the business.
After years as a carpentry workshop, Figueras produced its first seat: handmade, crafted from wood, and lacking any upholstery, yet surprisingly comfortable.
The owners of Cine Teatro Novedades in Barcelona, the city's largest and most modern cinema, turned to Figueras for their auditorium's renovation. This collaboration, directed by Antonio Bonamusa during Pedro Balañá's ownership, resulted in the creation of the Z seat—Figueras' inaugural upholstered model. This design marked a breakthrough in the collective seating sector, establishing Figueras as a prominent manufacturer of luxury seats.
A revolutionary concept emerged as plastic became an alternative to wood: injected plastic casings protected the seat and backrest, positioning Figueras as a company bridging traditional craftsmanship and industrial innovation.
Our offices relocated to Lliçà d’Amunt, where Figueras established its headquarters, maintaining close proximity to Barcelona.
Figueras installed over 60,000 seats in the new FC Barcelona stadium, the Camp Nou, solidifying its expertise in seating for stadiums and arenas.
The company revolutionized the seating industry by introducing the first seat with its patented all-in-one upholstery technology.
Figueras unveiled one of its most successful armchairs—the Top. An elegant and ergonomic design by Antonio Bonamusa, manufactured with the Integral Form system, the first Top armchairs found a home in the Kino Center Bergisch Gladbach in Germany.
Figueras diversified its product range, incorporating new materials and continuous innovation in manufacturing systems to create products suitable for various spaces. This included seating for schools and universities, waiting areas, cruise ships, ferries, and more.

Figueras expanded globally, establishing offices in the United States, France, and Asia, along with a network of sales representatives worldwide, positioning itself as a seating distributor.
Figueras achieved a significant milestone by furnishing the briefing room of the White House in Washington D.C. The Flame model, designed by architect Filipe Oliveira, adorned this iconic press room. Subsequently, Figueras renewed the armchairs in 2023, demonstrating its expertise in seating for conference rooms.
The United Nations selected Figueras to furnish the Hall of Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations in Geneva. Upcoming projects include the OVO Hydro Arena designed by Foster + Partners and the Philharmonie de Paris designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel, highlighting Figueras' expertise in seating for parliaments and auditoriums.
