Prima Materia Collection by Esrawe (MX)

Estratos solid wood and brass pieces by Hector Esrawe and Emilio Chapela in collaboration with Manuel Bañó. The singular and natural designs on each of the pieces were photographed, digitalized and then traced onto the surface of the wood with a robot. The process was repeated until the pattern was gradually engraved into the wood, following the design of the new photographed section.

“We’re effectively one big family that knows everything there is to know about beautiful, comfortable and sophisticated furniture. The fact that we enjoy creating things naturally makes it very much easier for us.” At KFF, every single employee subscribes to this statement by company founder and owner Karl-Friedrich Förster, whose initials gave the design forge its name. He has been making the zeitgeist at home in Lemgo for almost 30 years now by ensuring that every one of the attractive chairs, tables and smaller items of furniture produced under the KFF brand name in the little East Westphalian town radiates a sense of confident modernity.

The history of one of the German furniture sector’s top brands reads like a family saga. Today the company, which dates back to 1937, is under the direction of Leo Lübke, the third generation of his family to run the business: “We build the things that are important to us into our furniture: quality, uniqueness and a great passion for ideas.” The boss, who banks on a streamlined product portfolio and lean production processes, is thus utterly convinced that the brand’s reputation is founded on its quality. State-of-the-art technology in combination with meticulous craftsmanship form the first-class basis for all the furniture and furniture systems produced by interlübke. (by Atrium)

Whilst handcrafted production may mean different things to different people, it doesn’t necessarily trigger associations with recently constructed and impressively sized buildings such as those belonging to Schramm Werkstätten GmbH. Back in 1923, however, the firm started out on a much smaller scale – as an upholstery and saddlery workshop. Today, the handmade bed producer employees around 160 people at its Winnweiler site. Last year, it considerably extended the new building constructed in 1999, thus doubling its manufacturing capacity. Perfectly organised production flows provide support for all the manual processes and technologies, whilst the spacious and light-flooded workshops create an extremely positive work climate.

Individuality Comes First

Unusual: the cherry "Stammsitz" provides a sitting experience of a very different kind.

Unusual: the cherry “Stammsitz” provides a sitting experience of a very different kind.

Inside, Scholtissek’s current collection of tables and cabinets conjures up a puristic atmosphere. The minimalist, understated tables are the manifestation of a fascination with fine wood that has endured for more than 40 years. They are made not just of European hardwoods but of unusual varieties such as apple and Karelian birch from e.g. the USA as well. But there’s one thing you won’t find here: wood from the rainforest. “We only work with solid wood and have special expertise in making tables,” says the boss, summing up the firm’s philosophy.
