In transit gloria

"In transit gloria" ... It´s got to come in mind when it comes to waiting areas - and the suitable furnitures for it. At a "Brand Essential" for Kusch+Co the author from Architonic was putting it in a nutshell what the internationally operating company based in Hallenberg stands for: high-quality seating furnitures in transit areas and lounges that are making the stay comfortable to the passengers. The content incorporated to the "Brand Essential" can also be found in both media information that we were publishing about the recently opended Beijing Daxing International Airport and the Frankfurt Airport. We also came up with something with the headline but it does not reach the Architonic: "Waiting in style in the Tea Garden" is the name of our brand new media information about the Beijing Airport. Kusch+Co has already equipped more than 260 airports and more projects are about to come. We are curious!

Success Stories

Success Stories"Success stories" is an editorial format on the Design Center Baden-Württemberg´s homepage: And like so often in the Swabian area these stories do not lie uncovered but you have to dig a little bit. For us, as a mediator it is always nice to see how they come about: A media event at SATTLER in Göppingen - we had been developing a good and entertaining program and Sattlers was giving deep insights into the company. Everybody was surprised that luminaires of international standing are developed in the province. And one of you, closely related to the institution of design, was very inspired. Now one of this Success Stories is dedicated to SATTLER under the title "Light needs design", very worth reading!

The team at the vineyard

We made use of one of the last wonderful afternoons in autumn, closed the office and set out on our way: after about 40 minutes of driving with the suburban train from Rohr to Obertürkheim to experience what you can probably just experience in Stuttgart: vineyards near by the industrial location. Our team was accompagnied by Ariane Sohn and Thomas Rathay whom we owe the great photos - and Silke Rommel was planning the trip as a newly certified hiking guide - and the one who is the most outdoor-related colleague at our team! - from Ulbach up to the hill Rotenberg and in the end to the world champion of Maultaschen at Untertürkheim. Conclusion: if already Swabian than really Swabian! We should do that more often!

The 16th September it was announced that the design´s "enfant terrible" - Luigi Colani - died at the age of 91. The multisided designer will stay present for Kusch+Co with his Colani Edition. He was designing it - and many other drafts which stayed as a prototype forever - in the 1960s for the company from Hallenberg. But the production started in 2005. Colani really was a lot before his time. It´s written more about this incredible collaboration at our new media information.

10 years of PARCS!

PARCS, Bene´s revolutional furniture collection, is turning ten years old - and seems as fresh and unconventional as at its first day. We have a special relationship to PARCS. Not only because this program is occupying us currently in our media work. In 2012 Heike Bering had been visiting the two designers Luke Pearson and Tom Lloyd in London commissioned by the magazine "md Interior Design Architecture" and wrote an interview: "The choreographers of design". Still an interesting story that is a lot about Bene.

Our client´s projects are taking us to beautiful places - to the Swabian province to Waiblingen and to the Austrian metropolis of Vienna. There is also an architectal gem to discover at Kirchheim am Neckar. So we take you with us at our current media information to an expedition to the "Hotel Bachofer" in Waiblingen, what meant fulfilling a long cherished dream to the Michelin chef Bernd Bachofer, and we jump to Vienna into the new "Andaz Vienna am Belvedere". And finally, again in the province, we head for the gingerly sanified "Alte Kelter" in Kirchheim am Neckar.

Pretty quiet!

Pretty quiet!To create an acoustically comfortable atmosphere at the interior is a topic that is keeping our clients occupied. The solutions are as individual as the constructor´s requests, the building conditions and the planners´ ideas. Claudia Wald (Mori Space Stuttgart) for example, is convinced that the Rossoacoustic´s acoustically effective products are perfect for inserting them at a not used factory floor. The software corporation k15t is now working at this floor and is thrilled. The AZ Architekturzeitung was picking that topic immediately and putting it online. And here are our new media information about Rossoacoustic.
