In a manner of speaking, COR is interlübke’s younger sister. It was founded in 1954 – also by Leo Lübke, together with the then Prince of Bentheim-Tecklenburg. His Serene Highness’s coat of arms featured three hearts. And because producing outstanding upholstered furniture was a matter very close to the two co-founders’ hearts, they called the new enterprise COR, which is Latin for heart. (by Atrium)

Guardian and discoverer, traditionalist and trendsetter, retrospective and forward-looking: ClassiCon (Classic Contemporary Design) sees itself as a bridge that spans stylistic eras. Besides international furniture gems of the 20th century, it also presents outstanding contemporary designs with the potential to become tomorrow’s classics. What they have in common is a consistently stylish aesthetic language that rises above short-lived fashions and thus conveys an aura of elegant value. In addition, ClassiCon is the only licensee in the world that produces and distributes the collection of Eileen Gray (1878-1976), adhering faithfully to the original designs, delivering top-quality craftsmanship and meeting the highest ecological standards.

Their furniture is a promise. A promise of something special. For more than 30 years, Cabinet has been making bespoke interior solutions in artisanal quality. “The customer’s individual wishes and needs are our guiding principle,” says Julia Greven, daughter of Cabinet’s founder Michael Greven, in summary of the firm’s philosophy. She runs the company together with Jens Leyrer and Frank Nowicki. It is a firm with many years of tradition – and a love of craftsmanship seems to run in the family: “My father’s side of the family set up its own timber merchant business in Cologne back in 1838,” explains Julia Greven.

When you talk to bulthaup CEO Marc O. Eckert about kitchens, the conversation always goes far beyond the products the family business has been making for three generations. It becomes philosophical – but rather than taking a high-flown turn, it remains down-to-earth and rooted in everyday reality. It’s the same story with the kitchen furnishings: their surfaces might look too beautiful to be practical – but that’s exactly what they are. Because otherwise, bulthaup wouldn’t even dream of using them for its kitchens: ever since the firm’s collaboration with Otl Aicher, “form follows function” has been its guiding principle. In a perfect symbiosis between skilled craftsmanship and modern technology, bulthaup produces kitchens designed to serve their users, not vice versa. (by Atrium)

International style: "Escape" by Bullfrog for WK Wohnen

International style: “Escape” by Bullfrog for WK Wohnen

Designer and company founder Kurt Beier started out in the world of white gold: before designing upholstered furniture, he studied at the Porcelain College in Selb. Today you still sense a hint of this background in the sofas and armchairs created by Bullfrog. There is something sculptural, poetic, sometimes even playful about them. And that’s exactly what Kurt Beier had in mind when he founded Bullfrog in 1997. After working as head of design for a big upholstered furniture manufacturer in Upper Franconia, he wanted his own label. “I just wanted to have a totally free hand in my designs,” he explains.
