In our online furniture club minimum.club, we offer design furniture at reduced prices. We have been asked repeatedly whether these are actually originals – because, surely, this is too good to be true? Pseudo-Eames chairs with a clacking connection between the shell and the frame, cantilever chairs that stops swaying after a few weeks, a cacophony of screeches and squeaks, varnish that flakes off – you will not find errors of these proportions in our products. The annoyances that can arise after buying a replica - the inexpensive copy of a designer object - are often so aggravating that it's not long before you want to get rid of the pseudo classic. Originals, on the other hand, come with hefty price tags, and the attempt to buy these pieces cheaper is understandable. Thankfully, design classics and contemporary design objects produced by well-known manufacturers are not consumption but investment goods. An original designer cantilever chair holds umpteen generations, much to the d
If it's be common practice nowadays to develop office designs according to functional and aesthetic considerations, this is mostly thanks to the architect Florence Knoll, (now F. Knoll Bassett, *24.5.1917). Her legendary Knoll Planning Unit laid the foundation for modern office design. Florence Knoll herself also designed numerous pieces for the office that are considered classics today. Despite this, she never considered herself to be a furniture designer. She only designed furniture when she couldn't find any suitabl
The oversized 'goldsmiths work' Sign Fill isn’t suited to dark corners because a part of its charm is that depending on how the light falls, the chair’s trusses cast intriguing shadows that should be given adequate space. 45 metres of steel wire were welded together to produce a voluminous form with a delicate structure. The designer of the chair, Piergiorgio Cazzaniga, sought inspiration from antique filigree jewelry. The chair icon requires the welding of 226 connections through tedious manual labour. Its silhouette

The idea of the minimumhouse arose from conversations between Wilfried Lembert and Hermann Scheidt of Scheidt Kasprusch Architekten. They asked themselves why detached houses aren’t built using curtain wall, serially produced facade elements to reduce costs while ensuring high quality. The answer was developed in the form of the minimum house for a lake property in the south of Berlin. It is made of a delicate wooden sturcture with a screen width of 120 cm. A glass curtain wall facade was attached to the
Our new catalogue has just been released in the form of a coffee table book How do we want to live today? What kind of furniture and other interior design objects do we need around us?

In the foyer of the hotel Mauritzhof in Münster, particularly beautiful custom-made versions of the Gubi Beetle Chair invite you to linger – the velvet you’ll find there is one of the many hundreds of upholstery options for the chair. The Beetle Chairs by the Italian-Danish design duo GamFratesi impress with their spirited appeal to jovial 50s forms. They have their name for a reason: ironic details such as kinks in the chair legs and the shape of the seat shell and backrest are reminiscent of the hind legs and the bodies of insects. Like the insect world, the Beetle Chair universe is one of large variety – the chairs come in a surprising range of styles. What they all share is their excellent workmanship.

When we consult our customers on sofas and armchairs in the Berlin Stilwerk, the upholstery plays a central role. The following interview was conducted by Frederick Winkler of textilwirtschaft.de with Franziska Jaehnz. What role do textiles play in your customers' homes? The fabrics that we come into contact with when we are sitting, lying or walking around at home are very present in our living spaces and therefore important in the design of one's own 'nest'. Our customers have family, often including several lively children, and they enjoy having company. When we advise our customers on their textile choices in our shops, we carefully consider their personal needs. It is common for our customers to take fabrics home for a trial run. So the choice is rarely made in a single day, it is a process the outcome of which the customer will live with for many years. Longevity and high quality are essential. How has the home textile market changed for you? In the furniture business, we work p
