Lighting and acoustics are without doubt two of the essential factors in determining the comfort of an office as a workspace. In a career spanning more than 25 years so far, Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl has acquired great expertise in both of these fields. With his Nimbus brand, the Stuttgart architect and entrepreneur pioneered LED lighting solutions well before technological developments had fully opened up this area, when there was still a lot of basic work to be done.

“As our more than 600 bath, shower tray and washbasin models go to show, the things we provide as standard are considered custom solutions elsewhere. When we talk about individualisation, we mean genuine production specialities that nobody else offers,” says a confident Thilo C. Pahl. The young managing partner succeeded his father Fritz-Wilhelm Pahl a good two years ago. At the time, free-standing baths were becoming an increasingly important theme and made-to-measure solutions for the bathroom were starting to play a crucial role. (by Atrium)

We all know what veneer is – at least we think we do. Few of us, though, know the full range of applications that this finest of tree products has to offer. Highly versatile not only in technical terms, but also in its visual and emotional impact, veneer is always much more than simply a surface finish. On the contrary, there is a complex quality to it that appeals to a number of senses. The marketing association Initiative Furnier + Natur e. V. therefore regards it as one of its objectives to communicate this richly faceted diversity and to draw the attention of architects and designers to the enormous potential of veneer as a natural material. All it takes is a few typical applications to open our eyes to what veneer really can do. (by Ulrich Büttner)

In 1896, Adolf Lamprecht founded an enamelling and die-cutting works in Penig, Saxony, thus laying the foundations for the company that today trades under the acronym “Alape”. Since relocating in 1954, Alape has been producing individual washplace solutions for private and semi-public spaces in Goslar, Lower Saxony. Its success is founded on its glazed steel washbasins and washstands, as well as on a unique symbiosis of craftsmanship and technology within the manufacturing process. (by Atrium)

WET SYSTEM™ by Wall&decò is a revolutionary product for applying large-format non-repeating decorative wallpapers in wet environments such as bathrooms, spas but also fitness centres and kitchen backsplashes

The bathroom is often the most understated and unambitiously decorated space in residential interiors as its design is dictated by functional requirements such as the need for surfaces that repel moisture. But the era of bland bathrooms may be over thanks to Wall&decò’s revolutionary, waterproof WET SYSTEM™ wallpaper collection, which allows exciting murals and non-repeating patterns to be employed in wet and damp environments.

Whilst an expert’s trained eye can spot the hidden qualities straight away, many of the outstanding quality features remain invisible to the normal observer. But there are some things everyone can see: the classic design vocabulary, timeless elegance and stylistic confidence that are the hallmarks of every model produced by Bielefelder Werkstätten, or BW for short. The company has been producing upholstered furniture in a class of its own at its Bielefeld site since 1956 and has always regarded itself as a manufacturer in the sense of the word’s origin: a maker of hand-made goods. “No machine can match the degree of accuracy our work requires – it can only be done by hand,” says works manager Meinolf Helmig with obvious pride.
