nate - reflecting the good.Good can be seen through new perspectives.
How do we ensure our development is sustainable?
By forging new paths. Creating new connections. Understanding what motivates our customers. By ensuring that profitability and sustainability are mutually dependent, not mutually exclusive. By adopting work methods that are fit for the future.
From the idea for an exceptional wooden chair evolved so much more: An entire product line. It took three years of development for nate to take shape – and the results speak for themselves.
A modern wooden chair
Designing a modern wooden chair involves more than simply analysing the material. Values, goals, nature – our attitude defines our products. "The future-oriented design of a product starts with the core not the outer shell", Steffen Kehrle firmly believes.
A minimalist industrial design
Impressed by the solid design foundation, Philip Brunner raised the idea of a steel tube version during a consultation meeting at the Innovation Factory. With that suggestion, he opened up the potential for the production of another new development and to meet market needs. He began intense discussions with Atelier Steffen Kehrle about this proposal. Thus, together, they expanded the product range for the market.
We wanted to design a chair for rooms with positive vibes
Glue-free recycled plastic frame
Good comes from bold responses
Wood is an incredibly fascinating, sustainable material with a number of positive properties. We have questioned the status quo of its processing and familiar shapes and functions. State-of-the-art shaped wood technology added the finishing touch.
We consider wood as a high-tech material that continually offers us new potential and originality.
Thanks to the number of design options, the nate product range covers a wide range of customer requirements – from cosy with solid wood and subtle plastic frame to slim and versatile with a steel tube design.
