The key question is how furniture can make a lasting improvement to the environments people live and work in. Therefore, a new product development is not about a new chair per se, but better sitting, not about a new table, but nurturing communication, not about a new sofa, but relaxation. Or thinking about people’s needs. Or informal communication. Which is why innovations at Wilkhahn are the result of a careful development process, which starts by thinking outside the box and truly making things better.
Durable qualityThe quality Wilkhahn is famous for has made the brand internationally successful. Precise dimensions, form-fit parts and surface quality convey perfection and the high-quality nature of the product. What’s the point of being able to recycle virtually all the product if it’s less attractive, heavier and works less well as a result? Therefore, a careful balance is struck between availability, performance, material costs and recycling requirements for instance. In addition to material quality, we strive to follow smart design principles that include the ability to repair and upgrade products.
