Out in the open and on the table: Indonesia-based brand Karpenter's environmental credentials are underscored by its brand slogan – 'Designed by us, defined by nature'

Out in the open and on the table: Indonesia-based brand Karpenter’s environmental credentials are underscored by its brand slogan – ‘Designed by us, defined by nature’

Materials are anything but immaterial to KARPENTER – the Indonesian-based design brand that in the few short years since its launch has managed to claim a convincing stake at the table of manufacturers who truly understand the critical relation between design, materials and the environment.

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)

Whilst an expert’s trained eye can spot the hidden qualities straight away, many of the outstanding quality features remain invisible to the normal observer. But there are some things everyone can see: the classic design vocabulary, timeless elegance and stylistic confidence that are the hallmarks of every model produced by Bielefelder Werkstätten, or BW for short. The company has been producing upholstered furniture in a class of its own at its Bielefeld site since 1956 and has always regarded itself as a manufacturer in the sense of the word’s origin: a maker of hand-made goods. “No machine can match the degree of accuracy our work requires – it can only be done by hand,” says works manager Meinolf Helmig with obvious pride.
