Established in 1978, we offer traditional craftsmanship, and outstanding workmanship. We have been a trusted wholesaler in the industry for over 40 years. Artifex Australia manufactures all of our products in house, using Australian made materials and components.
From the sustainable jarrah frames, in house shaped Australian made foams, and Australian made plywood, to manufacturing our own metal legs and frames, we are perhaps the only furniture manufacturer in Australia that does everything under one roof. Thank you for visiting our website and in turn one of our retail partners, but most importantly, thank you for supporting Australian made and keeping Australian employed.
Artifex Australia has been a family owned and operated business since 1978. The original owners, Nick and Diana Moniodis, decided to retire at the end of the 2014/15 financial year and spend more time with their family. After their lifelong commitment to the Australian manufacturing community Nick and Diana handed over their legacy to Michael D’Andrea.
From the 1st of July 2015, Michael continued delivering the same service and quality, supported by his wife and three children. Michael’s experience will help bring new life, new ideas, and new designs into the business.
Artifex, the Latin word meaning craftsman, will continue to be on the forefront of design, using only the highest quality raw materials and employing Australian craftsmen to create and deliver fine furniture Australia wide.
Michael has high expectations that Artifex will deliver quality products on time and will continue to be of great service to the Australian fitout community. With your ongoing support, Artifex will continue to employ Australians manufacturing furniture locally.
Michael has over 25 years’ experience in furniture and over 15 years in owning businesses. Michael commenced his furniture career as a cabinet maker, manufacturing furniture for commercial and residential use. During this time he also studied furniture design, creative writing, small business, and moved into several sales and business development roles for high end furniture companies around Western Australia.
Michael is passionate about all things furniture, especially how to manufacture furniture that will last a lifetime with the lowest possible environmental impact, which is a major priority as a Dad with a young family. Michael lives in Perth and spends most of his time running Artifex Australia, while also making time for his family and other passions, such as soccer and mountain biking. He often travels to other states to visit our partners and establish new relationships. So ask him when he will be in your area next!
