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.

The Art of Quintessence

Free fall: the arrangement of the poles in the "Linux" shelving unit is randomly generated, making each and every configuration a one-off.

Free fall: the arrangement of the poles in the “Linux” shelving unit is randomly generated, making each and every configuration a one-off.

More than three decades ago, Hubert Matthias Sanktjohanser was lucky enough to find two partners for life: wood, the material that inspired him to master the craft of cabinetmaking and become a passionate furniture designer, and his wife, a like-minded architect who achieves his visions with him. In his designs, Sanktjohanser concentrates on the essentials: his tables, sideboards and shelving systems are discreet, aesthetic, innately coherent, undogmatic and variable. At a deeper level, they exhibit the artistic and functionally sophisticated characteristics that give his furniture its specific identity. The position of the poles for the Linux shelving series, for example, is randomly determined, thus making every single specimen a one-off. Ingenious processes are used to finish the surfaces, sliding doors permit maximum variation in playful combination with open and closed forms, and their contrasting edges and surfaces are the epitome of graphic precision. The colour spectrum: black, white and natural hues. (by Atrium)

When something has a rose in its name, it is destined to be associated with refined beauty. Perhaps Philipp Rosenthal knew that when he founded a porcelain-painting company in Selb back in 1879. But did he also realise that he was on the point of creating what was to become a global brand? A brand that would still be a highly influential creative force in the third millennium? That is just as sought-after in Shanghai as it is in Chicago or Paris? (by Atrium)

Plastics company Rehau is closely linked with the town of Rehau. Wherever you go in this particular part of Hochfranken, there are buildings belonging to the polymer specialists, amusingly named after the chemical elements. Of the ten thousand people who live here, two thousand work for the family-run company. (by Atrium)
