Classic Line counter from Müller Möbelfabrikation

Reception with fire protection: The reception counter is a kind of business card for the company. With the Classic Line, visitors are not only greeted in an elegant and fresh way, even the standard version of the counter meets the highest standards of fire protection. 

All the furniture in the metal collection is made of sheet steel one to three millimetres thick. For the paintwork, Müller uses high-gloss and hard-wearing acrylic paints from the automotive industry. 

Since all colours of the RAL palette can be selected, the metal furniture can be adapted to a wide variety of furnishing styles. This creates individual counter solutions that retain their value and ensure greater safety in everyday working life.

Lupino shell chair from Kusch+Co 

Non-combustible designer furniture: Preventive structural fire protection measures in hospitals, care facilities, office buildings and public buildings include the special design of foyers, waiting areas and corridors. 

With the Kusch+Co fire protection concept, design-oriented and comfortable furniture such as the Lupino armchairs with their gently curved seat shell can be used in these highly frequented areas. A fine, flexible separating layer between the seat upholstery and the upholstery fabric offers reliable resistance even in the case of direct flaming. 

It is approved by the building authorities and is non-combustible A2 in accordance with DIN 4102. With this coordinated combination of foam, separating layer and cover fabric, the upholstery composites comply with the DIN 66084 P-a classification.  

LightBeton from Richter Akustik & Design

Special mineral surface: In addition to its authentic look and feel, LightBeton is characterised above all by its unique properties and ease of processing. 

The mineral material is significantly lighter than a solid concrete wall. It can be easily processed with woodworking machines without causing increased wear on the tools. 

LightConcrete is flame retardant (B-s1 d0) and can be used for walls and other vertical surfaces as well as for floors. Formwork offers a very special look with the detailed imprint of the concrete system formwork.

The Contemporary Persia Collection by Hadi Teherani is an extensive selection of elegant fabrics influenced by Iranian culture. 

The fabric collection includes fine as well as coarse structures, in natural materials with earthy to bold hues. Flame retardant textiles such as the semi-transparent, floor-to-ceiling curtain fabric Afsun complete the spectrum. The Persian art of calligraphy inspired the striking design. 

Afsun is made of 100 percent Trevira CS, is available in four colour variations and, thanks to its flame retardancy, is also suitable for use in the contract sector.
