Elegance in the bathroom: the fittings from KEUCO's "EDITION 11" collection are aesthetic, functional and sensuous

Elegance in the bathroom: the fittings from KEUCO’s “EDITION 11″ collection are aesthetic, functional and sensuous

The foundation stone of what was to become KEUCO GmbH & Co. KG was laid on 1st April 1953, when Hermann Bönner and Paul Keune founded a small fittings firm together with investors Eduard Baron de Becker-Remy and Josef Himrich. Back then, 60 years ago, nobody could have suspected it would turn into an international full-range provider of bathroom products. In the meantime, KEUCO is an established German brand of global standing and has earned itself an international reputation as a design-centric bathroom furnishings manufacturer. The family business is headed by Engelbert Himrich, the third generation to serve as managing partner, and Managing Director Hartmut Dalheimer. All the main shareholders are members of the families that founded the company. (by Atrium)

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

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.
