Clever grid: the individual carcass elements can be stacked or arranged as required

Upper Swabia, where artisanal quality and a passion for precision are a long-standing tradition, is also home to furniture makers Kettnaker – and has been since 1870. Wolfgang Kettnaker – the fifth generation of his family to head the Dürmentingen-based company – provides lovers of clear-cut forms with the perfect solution for exquisitely aesthetic and individualisable storage space. The company’s portfolio has recently been expanded to include tables and beds, which can be combined with its cabinet and storage systems to create complete interiors with a coordinated, consistent look. The concept behind Kettnaker’s modular furniture range is a tradition that dates back to the 1970s, when the company began developing modular systems and offering customers an alternative to compact individual cabinets.

“Today I get to be the model for a change,” says Kai Byok while his staff walk around the showroom during the photo shoot with Heiner Köpcke. The boss, designer and eponym of K.B. Form flirts with the camera. But usually, when a photographer comes to the Hamburg suburb of Rellingen, the focus is on other stars. Radiant stars! They’re just as self-confident and photogenic as their inventor – thanks to their lucid, understated design language and intelligent functions. Because Kai Byok sticks to a very clear principle: good, often award-winning design and flawless functionality are the top priority in all his creations. “Genuinely perfect light creates a pleasant basic feeling rather than leaping out at you,” says Byok.

Tradition: close collaboration with internationally renowned designers and architects is the order of the day at ipdesign. The label’s “Drift” lounge furniture was created in collaboration with Graft

The history of the firm founded in 1977 under the name Interprofil is dotted with design awards – a success story that continued unbroken when it was integrated into the JAB Anstoetz Group as Interprofil KG in 2006. Last year the collection was renamed ipdesign – a name that now also stands for exclusive, design-oriented solitaire furniture which, along with the Bielefelder Werkstätten collections, signals the manufacturer’s commitment to the top-end segment.
