New environmental Statement

In the environmental statement just published Wilkhahn describes an important piece of its corporate philosophy. Because design made in Germany embraces a lot more than innovative product design and enduring quality. In the “Consolidated environmental statement 2014-2016” the company talks about its approach to climate protection, social responsibility, resource efficiency and health management. It also puts forward objectives that they want to achieve in the next few years.

Law Firm in Pamplona

The Spanish town of Pamplona is primarily known for its traditional running of the bulls. Hundreds and thousands of people come to the festivities every year to watch the dangerous event, or even run a few metres with the bulls themselves. But during the rest of the year, life in Pamplona usually takes place on the streets. So with their design for a law firm architects Jon and Gorka Lizarraga wanted to create a place where people could concentrate on what they were doing. In furnishing the building they chose tailor-made furniture and high-quality office and conference chairs from Wilkhahn.

Anniversaries of our dynamic tables

Designer Andreas Störiko developed the legendary Confair folding table for Wilkhahn 20 years ago. Back then, design plans were drawn by hand and the huge rolls were sent by post. Since those days the world’s changed rapidly – but the mobile tables are still considered milestones in terms of flexible use of spaces that are organised by the people using them. To mark the anniversary, Wilkhahn’s devoting a new brochure to the multi-award-winning table family.

20 years of the Confair folding table

Four question to designer Andreas Störiko

 

Wilkhahn has partnered with Andreas Störiko for a long time. Back in 1992, as a student he created a mobile conference concept and developed the Confair folding table two years later. The table’s speciality is that it can be folded up and opened out in one step, making it a template for a whole generation of furniture. Over the past two decades, Confair has been presented with numerous prizes and up until today the table range is a top seller at Wilkhahn. The anniversary is a good reason to interview Andreas Störiko about his work.
