The Tubax company was founded in 1948 under the leadership of Jan Vits from the Werkhuizen Vits. Tubax NV would become one of the largest Belgian manufacturers of metal furniture. In 1963 the company was at its peak when more than 200 people were employed. During this period Tubax, among others, produced the popular designs of Willy van der Meeren.
In 2012, this long history was continued. Two young creative furniture makers were fascinated by the old tube furniture from the Vilvoorde brand. She made a plan to breathe new life into the old Belgian steel furniture producer. More information about Tubax can be found here
