“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.

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.

Only the best is good enough for our customers. This idea of quality already counted back in 1940, when hülsta’s success story began with a classic carpentry firm employing just ten people. In the meantime, the Münsterland company has evolved into an internationally operating brand with around 1200 employees. In 1960 Karl Hüls, son of founder Alois Hüls, took over at the helm. With a great deal of ambition, a thirst for innovation and his pronounced quality consciousness, he turned the furniture company into the famous German manufacturer’s brand it is today.

An intent silence fills the big, high-ceilinged, light-flooded rooms. Every single one of the women employed at Ege exquisit is a skilled specialist, and many of the ladies here have been contributing their experience for decades. They devote total concentration to their work, turning gorgeous and superb materials into table and bed linen, sewing custom-made shirts, lovingly embroidering the most delicate of christening robes or appliquéing hundreds of organza flowers that have been specially embroidered in St. Gallen onto white sateen that is destined to adorn a wedding table.

The three solid, unusually patterned stone slabs appear to be weightless as they move effortlessly apart before joining up to form a large dining table. The sophisticated technology of the extension mechanism and unique natural stone slabs embody the striking features typical of Draenert’s furniture. The company specialises in the production of dining and coffee tables, as well as matching seating furniture. And it was a stone that got the company started. Back in 1968 Dr. Peter Draenert, then still a student of philosophy, art history and German studies, created his first table as a way of saving money – using a 180 million-year-old slab of Swabian oil shale that he had stumbled across in a barn.

Bringing Passion to Light

Strokable: the "Mia" table lamp in two-coloured felt is quite an experience – at both tactile and visual level

Fresh ideas filled with light and life by natural materials – the credo that lamp manufacturer DOMUS has upheld since 1966 is as simple as it is convincing! Lighting engineer Olaf Seynsche runs the family business with ambition and commitment. Under his direction, the brand has developed into a label that attracts great interest from the lighting sector and private customers alike. The lamps go by unusual names such as “Sten”, “Pit”, “Mia” or “Edward”. But that’s not the only thing they have in common: they are all the product of highly skilled craftsmanship as well.

In the late 1990s, there was only one name that came into question for anybody with a weakness for unusually attractive fireplace accessories: conmoto. A lot has happened since then! With fresh ideas and a keen instinct for trends, conmoto has established itself as a brand name for top-quality furniture and sophisticated design. We paid a visit to Johannes Wagner, the inventor and driving force behind the brand, in Münster, where art, expertise and vision enter into a fantastic symbiosis at the firm’s smart headquarters on the shores of Aasee Lake. “This is home to our creative cell, which consists of designers, design engineers, carpenters and graphic designers. This is where trends are anticipated,” explains the entrepreneur with obvious pride. (by Atrium)
