Most successful year in the history of the company


Rheinau, Germany, November 2018

Brunner can look back on the most successful year in its history: After the commissioning of the two new production sites - the new logistics center and the Innovation Factory - a sales growth of more than 10 percent and an overwhelming response to the presence at the leading trade fair for the contract furniture industry, Brunner is very satisfied: "This year's appearance at Orgatec with 18 new products was our most successful so far," said Managing Director, Dr Marc Brunner. "Our company's strong innovative capacity would not be possible without the intensive and passionate collaboration between our specialist departments and our external design partners and suppliers. We are delighted to have received such overwhelming feedback from our customers and visitors in this respect."


With the motto "New Perspectives", Baden-based contract furniture manufacturer Brunner once again demonstrated its innovative capacity and versatility in Cologne with a total of 18 new products and product supplements for offices and public spaces. With almost 63,000 visitors, this year's Orgatec recorded an increase in attendance of 15 percent. "ORGATEC was the icing on the cake for the most successful year in our company's history with a growth in sales of more than 10 percent," explained Philip Brunner, Sales Manager for Germany.


Office furniture with a focus on cosiness

The new products include two additions to the A-Collection designed by jehs+laub: The upholstered A-Lounge lounge seat provides more space and first-class seating comfort with numerous potential applications and comfortable upholstery. The aluminium and wood frame versions can be used in any combination to create the perfect interior setting. The modular A-Bench system consists of eight different elements. These can be combined with the others, or placed separately, for example in cafeterias, co-working spaces and waiting areas.

The ray high-end conference family is yet another inspired design from jehs+laub. The latest members of the family, ray soft and ray lounge, now open up options for using this collection outside of traditional conference settings: hotels, cafeterias, waiting areas and lounges will look all the better for being furnished with these ergonomic designer chairs. ray soft has three different seat shell heights and five different frame designs, which can be combined in a multitude of ways. The ray lounge upholstered easy chair is now also available with a wooden frame.

Unique trade fair stand design

In addition to the products on display, Brunner also wowed visitors with the design of its 660-m2 trade fair stand – not least with a partition made up of greenery specially designed for Orgatec. Famous design studio Ippolito Fleitz from Stuttgart came up with the trade fair stand design. At the stand, freely arranged panels in the space defined the various parts of the exhibit. Collaged wall and floor materials blurred the borders between them. The new outdoor furniture range crona steel was presented in the stand's cafeteria section on real exposed aggregate concrete. Wall elements of various sizes, some suspended, also made for interesting viewing.


New production facility: Innovation Factory

Visitors to the stand were also given the opportunity to visit the newly built Innovation Factory production facility in Rheinau, Baden, with virtual reality. "With this facility, we have created a place where customers can gain insights into the production of high-quality, aesthetic contract furniture as the visible heart of our innovative activity," says Dr Marc Brunner. The Innovation Factory, a self-contained building on the company's own site, is a hybrid building that houses the design department, assembly areas, office and communication spaces and the canteen. The visible modular wooden structure of the industrial building makes for a striking image that pays homage to the company's manufacturing concept.
