In 1920, Mr. Antony Neuckens founded a company for the import and installation of fibrociment (fibre concrete) plates from Germany. Hence the name Fibrocit.
These plates are mainly used as acoustic wall and ceiling coverings for theaters and cinemas. Thanks to his frequent contacts with the vibrant Brussels theater and cinema scene (by 1920 some 100 cinemas are in operation in the Brussels city centre), Mr. Neuckens is asked whether FIBROCIT can also provide comfortable theater and cinema seats.
In 1937, FIBROCIT switched from import to production of theater and cinema seats as well as various other utility chair designs. The factory was located in the rue Masui in Brussels. Following a blaze in the factory in 1941, the entire production capacity went up in flames. As a consequence, FIBROCIT moved to a location in Zuun (Anderlecht) where they built a state-of-the-arts facility with the best production techniques available at that time.
The chairs have thoroughly cleaned and given a coat of wax, will show signs of minor cosmetic wear.
