Timeless architecture since 1993.
Furniture from more, Hamburg.
Whether beautiful, high quality or practical, furniture is only truly valuable once it becomes a completely natural part of our everyday lives. That is what we aim for at more.
The team led by Bernhard Müller has been designing quality chairs, tables, beds and storage furniture for over 20 years now. “Our understanding of architecture in space has always guided us when coming up with new ideas. Our furniture is meant to allow freedom for individual design instead of dominating spaces,” says the architect and founder of more.
Objects from more are conceptualized and manufactured to accompany their owners for years and even decades; inspired by clear ideas, surprising functionality and the timeless forms of modern classics.
“We are convinced that substantial design must make no compromises when it comes to the quality of materials,” explains Müller. more therefore uses high-quality, natural and, whenever possible, organically produced materials – even for invisible components such as upholstery or bracing.
The slow-growing, solid woods we use are sourced from sustainable forestry in Germany, France and the USA. We allow the wood regular rest periods at a controlled humidity between each work step, resulting in particularly durable surfaces.
The company purchases materials from Sweden, Italy and England, including wool fabrics from New Zealand pure new wool with China grass for a particularly pleasant feel. Leather is sourced from English, German and Austrian production. It is tanned in Italy and dyed with soluble colors to preserve the natural character. Some leathers are even 100% ecologically tanned using olive leaves.
Furniture from more has always been manufactured exclusively in Germany, in three factories located in the north and in the Lower Rhine region. We have held long-lasting working relationships with these companies and greatly appreciate them for their superb accuracy and reliability.
more was founded over 20 years ago by the designer and CEO Bernhard Müller. In an open and direct dialog, our team develops new ideas and makes them reality. We only do what we enjoy doing, and only work on projects that really convince us. We advise and assist our customers personally, and we also put special emphasis on long-lasting relationships with our partners and suppliers.
