Vilmers uses DesignConcept to manufacture customized Furniture

Discover how Vilmers is using the Lectra solutions DesignConcept 3D, Diamino and Formaris to help cope with strong demand for customization and to speed up their delivery times. 


Upholstered furniture manufacturer Vilmers increases their customization capabilities with Lectra solutions DesignConcept 3D, Diamino and Formaris

Founded in 1997, Vilmers initially mass-produced leather furniture. The company’s decision to transition to producing modular, fabric sofa systems has yielded tremendous success, with annual revenue growth of 25%. Vilmers’ customers—primarily in the Scandinavian, Benelux and French markets—can choose from over 85 modular sofas, and more than 250 fabrics and colors. They can customize the dimensions, armrests, stitching, and number of seats to create a sofa that is uniquely theirs, and delivered in only 3 to 6 weeks.

Vilmers is facing the challenge of responding to consumer demand for quick delivery of customized furniture. To speed up their creation process Vimers is using Lectra solutions to help them make design changes and deliver production-ready variants of their furniture faster.
