Brunner over the years
It all started with an idea.
An idea that lay the foundation stone for the future of Brunner and its employees. A passion for excellent furniture and the willingness to combine innovation and practicality against all odds. This was the primary motivation of Rolf and Helena Brunner from the start and it has since remained that way: We have been seeking out challenges and solving problems, preferably those of the future, since 1977. It will always be that way.
