Chief Designer Kurt Erni has been responsible for our design concept since 1986. His designs are created with long-term use in mind, rather than shorlived trends. High-grade materials, functionality and high-quality workmanship are just as important as perfect alignment. It is Kurt Erni’s concern to offer a collection that allows living and working rooms to be furnished individually.
