The Durlet company was established in 1966 by Egide Durlet. A family business, it was joined two years later by Pieter Vanzieleghem, Durlet's stepson. The entire team consisted of five people. From the very start, Durlet stood resolutely for top quality and innovative designs. And always in cooperation with outside designers – in those days a revolutionary concept. The models are the creations of the trend-setting German designers Waldmann, Gölz and Schmidt.
