How furniture is created
The prototype: from the idea to the finished sofa
New furniture is not developed from the vacuum. The spirit of the times plays a role – in times of global change, people want more security and warmth, evident in especially soft, cuddly furniture and warm, earthy colours.
Ergonomics play an important role
Ultimately, ergonomics play an ever increasingly important role: Good furniture must not only be beautiful, but foremost be comfortable and provide best possible support for increased numbers of users with back impairments. The designer must feel, absorb and incorporate all these factors. At the same time, the new furniture must look good, be unproblematic in manufacturing and, most of all, be affordable. So the task presented to the designer and the team of upholsterers, seamstresses and constructing engineers in the development department is not an easy one. Last, but not least, is one thing important: year-long experience and an instinctive »gut-feeling«, letting one sense if an idea can lead to success.

Handicraft at its best
A perfectly organised workflow is the basis for quality, good service and on-time delivery. The production flow is fully computerized, providing smooth processing. Barcodes inform about each production stage of every piece of furniture. The assembly of high-quality mechanical functions is done in a special assembly line. Constant quality control is standard. Before the furniture is dispatched, it is packed in recyclable special foil to prevent pressure marks. Reliable transport is provided by the trained staff and an affiliated logistics company.
Furniture built with precision
One can seriously fall in love with the design of a furniture piece. Excellent manufacturing is mandatory. Leather is a challenging and valuable material, where every detail must be fabricated with great care. No leather is alike, that’s why perfect raw material and precise material testing is especially important.
