Verges relationship with Yago Sarri is very narrow. In every corner of the factory, offices, catalogs there is a bit of Iago.

“The chairs are made and designed to be sold. If you do not sell it is a failure.” “Successful are the things that last forever regardless of fashions and trends.” Yago With this philosophy we’ve evolved to find that point where design, functionality and comfort that customers liked and its products have always been very well received.
