About us
Fabio Alemanno Design is a family-owned company with more than 40 years of experience in architectural stone masonry. At our factory in the south of Italy we combine traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technologies for the development and manufacture of our heated loungers and treatment tables.
At Fabio Alemanno, we also design, manufacture and realise high-end construction projects using marble, natural- and semi-precious stone. Our marketing, showroom and logistics operations are located at our offices in the UK and Germany.

Key markets
Health & fitness, hotels & hospitality, spa & wellness, sport & recreation. Fabio Alemanno is an international firm and retails worldwide.

Product range and services
Our heated marble lounge chairs are the acknowledged gold standard in luxury hotel, spa and residential design. The proven therapeutic benefits of long-wave infrared, together with the technological superiority of our products, makes them the first choice for discerning clients around the world.
Cut from a single block of flawless marble, Fabio Alemanno heated lounge chairs are pieces of modern art with an intimate usefulness no marble sculpture could ever achieve. Ergonomically shaped and unique in their design and structure, the chairs combine wellness with design and technology, offering unparalleled comfort and an amazing relaxation experience.
Their regenerative warmth will pamper your guests, whether in the spa or the intimacy of the suite, making their stay unforgettable. Unlimited choices of marble, exotic wood, leather and fabrics enable a perfect and seamless integration into any environment, while offering architects and interior designers endless possibilities for customisation.
As well as the design and manufacturing of our heated marble lounge chairs and tables, we offer bespoke marble and natural stonemasonry services for the hotel, spa and residential markets.

USP
Based on ancient knowledge – and confirmed by scientific research – warmth is one of the most important sources of healing and preventative therapy available. Warmth is a long wave infrared and as well as the sun, it is radiated by the soil (mud therapy), by the sand (sand bath therapy) and by the marble and other mineral rocks (including hammam and hot stone therapies).
Our heated lounge chairs combine the healing properties of natural stone with the therapeutic effects of long-wave infrared rays. An integrated, controllable electrical system warms the lounger from within, the warmth radiating through the stone. This provides many health benefits – such as stress reduction, detoxification and the treatment of muscular and osteopathic injuries.
The loungers use a variable-tilt technology, which creates the perfect inclination and delivers an almost zero-gravity effect – all with the body fully supported. A flexible, responsive three zoneheating system ensures optimal temperature regulation and the loungers can be easily moved thanks to integrated castors. With an easy-to-clean surface, Fabio Alemanno lounge chairs can be used for a wide range of applications at spas, in hotels and in residential projects.

Key clients
ESPA, Rixos, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, Centara Hotels and Resorts, Reebok Armenia, Six Senses, Capella Group, Fairmont Hotel, Eupepsia.
