Founded in 1883, Vorwerk Carpets stands for refinement, creativity and intelligence revolving around the central theme of the floor. This, in turn, makes Vorwerk Carpets a supportive element of architecture, as well as a coveted design brand that is much in demand, time and again.
Soundness meets passion
The Vorwerk carpet collections encompass high-grade models oriented towards diversity, all the way to sophisticated, fascinating luxury collections which are also custom-made individually on request.
Quality forms the essence of all Vorwerk product lines. And essential for accomplishing this are years of production know-how and selected production materials, for instance high-tech, brand-name threads along with certified highest-grade natural wool yarns.
Vorwerk Carpets fulfils the highest international quality standards and norms - not only in the commercial contract sector: for private interiors, too. Quality means competence. The products from Vorwerk Carpets convey this level of competence, the same as the entire product development, the staff - and service. With the new media publications "Dialog" for architects and interior designers, and "Neuheit" (‘What's New') for the specialised trade, Vorwerk is creating an interactive communication channel, advises on an international scale, and sets styles.

He also finds out that you can’t tar all drainage systems with the same brush either, that no two types of paint are the same, and that “green PVC” is really quite an attractive option.
There is no standard solution for the future
As the “world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials, systems” BAU in Munich offers a wealth of information for architects, planners and anyone with an interest in today’s building solutions, or tomorrow’s. That said, this time round highly customizable standard solutions took center stage while true innovation remained scarce.› To the article
