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.

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

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.
