For 20 years, Richard Lampert and his company have been successfully producing design classics by Egon Eiermann or Herbert Hirche and developing contemporary, innovative design. (by Atrium)

A perfect blend of detail-conscious design, harmonious proportions, high-precision production technology and subtle colours is the hallmark of the modular systems by Piure: furniture made in Germany with Italian impressions, based on clean lines and clever ideas, modern – but definitely not inspired by fleeting fashions. The success story behind Piure began in 2006, when Simone Spang and Ludger Köhler pooled their many years of experience in creativity and management and passionately set about turning their subtle interior visions into reality.

‘What use is the biggest and most attractive hotel suite to me’, states architect Ursula Fuss, ‘if I'm unable to use the bathroom because I can't get into it with my wheelchair, or the shower is constructed in such a way that I can't access it’

‘What use is the biggest and most attractive hotel suite to me’, states architect Ursula Fuss, ‘if I’m unable to use the bathroom because I can’t get into it with my wheelchair, or the shower is constructed in such a way that I can’t access it’

People with physical disabilities are dependent on buildings being designed in such a way that they provide disabled access. This principle has for the most part been applied in public facilities, even though there is still ground to make up in this respect. In hotels, on the other hand, the picture looks very different, and architect Ursula Fuss from Frankfurt, Germany, is therefore all the more pleased that Samsung Chemical Europe recently entrusted her with the challenge of designing a hotel bathroom with disabled access.

Ever since the mid-nineties, flowing and organic forms that shape facade and roof design have been a prominent trend in contemporary architecture, with figures such as Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid and Peter Cook as prominent practitioners of this formal architectural idiom. Whereas in the past the implementation of special facade solutions required architects to cooperate with a whole series of different specialists and partner companies, the design and construction of 3D facades has now been vastly simplified by an innovation developed by Samsung Chemical Europe GmbH.

Head of the table: Willi Notte is the second generation of his family to run the business

This is craftsmanship at its best: with its 14 highly motivated employees, the Notte carpentry company from Bitburg/Eifel creates exclusive furniture and sophisticated built-in furnishings that have been impressing customers from all over Germany with their looks and quality for decades. Founded in 1956, the company is currently headed by Willi Notte, the second generation of his family to run the business, and his oldest son is already playing an active role in the firm. Continuity is evident elsewhere too: what was originally the workshop has recently been converted into a light-flooded residence that doubles as a showroom. It treats visitors and customers alike to a casual and very convincing demonstration of the company’s conceptual prowess. (by Atrium)
