New for the 2018 IMM Cologne fair: Awarded with the ICONIC AWARD: ”Innovative Interior 2018 Winner“: Rolf Benz RONDO – Evolution of elegance
15.01.2018 / Cologne / Nagold. A lot has changed since elegance meant firm cushions and stiff, upright positions. We have relaxed, we are more fun-loving, more pleasure-orientated. And we all want to bring this approach into our living space too. Now, elegance is more soft and inviting, laid-back and informal. It is streamlined shapes and flowing lines that characterise this approach. Like for instance Rolf Benz RONDO, the latest kind of stylish lounging - designed by This Weber and manufactured in the Black Forest by the brand design company Rolf Benz.

freistil 144 at the Cologne furniture fair: The sofa for bobos – that is, bourgeois nonconformists.
15.01.2018 / Cologne / Nagold. The French term “bourgeois-bohème” is a bit long-winded, so we prefer to speak of “bobos” – to be more precise, people who could be described as creative, bourgeois hippies. They’re free-spirited nonconformists who would turn a sofa into a bed – if our skilled designers hadn’t already done that with freistil 144. And whilst we’re on the topic of French words, let’s start with “Bou”: this new sofa has its own “bourle”. That’s a nicer way of describing the bulge added to the edge of the upholstery, which serves as both a protective and decorative element. So, next time you perch on a freistil 144, treat yourself to some bouillabaisse with bourbon. That’s double Bobo!

freistil 132 at the Cologne furniture fair: Amorphous shapes celebrate the past as well as the present.
15.01.2018 / Cologne / Nagold. The design team Yonoh, which created freistil 132, is hard at work in Valencia. This city in eastern Spain is also home to Santiago Calatrava, an architect who is famous for his amorphous, futuristic buildings. The new freistil 132 sofa is like a fantasy-inspired further development of Calatrava’s design vocabulary. Art lovers and connoisseurs may even discover hints of the Art Nouveau movement in the sofa’s sculptural lines. To further explore this inspiration, we would have to go back an entire century. But if you want to research it yourself, you and your design history books can make yourselves at home on your very own freistil 132.
