Tribù, creating the art of leisure since 1966
1966
The Tribù story began with Henri de Cock, Born in 1924. He started his own garden furniture import company, laying the foundations for what would become a third-generation, family-owned Belgian design house. Independent and innovative, Tribù works with craftsmen and designers to create outdoor furniture that enhances the lives of its customers.
1987
in 1987, Henri’s son Lode became head of the company with an ambitious vision. As a civil engineer, Lode’s expert eye for finish, durability and detail gave him the freedom to rethink traditional outdoor furniture.
1992
Working with designer Wim Segers, Lode launched our first collection, Praslin, setting the tone for Tribù furniture: creative, contemporary and durable.
1997
Lode’s vision is an instant success. By 1997, Tribù furniture is being sold across Western Europe and the USA, and in 1999 we became the first outdoor furniture company to exhibit at Salone del Mobile in Milan.
2000
International expansion highlighted the importance of sustainability. We continuously ensured the use of the highest quality materials from trusted sources, with ethically harvested teak as a cornerstone of our collections.
2013
In 2013, Lode’s sons Tom, brand ambassador, and Koen, CEO, take on the day-to-day operation of the company and, in 2017, a new office and showroom mark the first 50 years of Tribù.
2017
For Tribù, luxury is discreet, contemporary and understated. We express luxury through elegant details and subtle colours, shapes and textures that work in harmony with their setting. Our manufacturers only use the highest quality materials, ensuring strength, durability and weather resistance. Our drive to research and develop natural-looking materials is one of the foundations of our success.
