2017 annual financial statements: Sedus Stoll Group remains on track for success

Outstanding start to the 2018 financial year

WALDSHUT-TIENGEN, GERMANY, GERMANY, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With an annual surplus of € 9.9 million (2016: € 9.5 million), 2017 proved to be another successful year for the Sedus Stoll Group.

Turnover was up and there was also a similarly strong increase in the order volume of 1.4% by the end of the year to hit a total of € 191.2 million (€ 188.5 million). Incoming orders rose by 6.6%, a figure which is more dynamic than the overall office furniture market and, as such, the Sedus Stoll Group expanded its market share even further.

The areas of the Sedus Stoll Group in detail
The Sedus Seating product area (office seating, furniture for communicating and contract furniture) reported a total growth of 3.4% in orders to € 100 million compared to the previous year. At 3.5% and 3.1% respectively, the growth rates at home and abroad were similar.

In the Sedus Systems product area (office furniture, desks and cabinet systems) the order volume grew by a total of 16.8% to € 76.2 million with a growth rate of 18.8% at home and 14.5% abroad.

In contrast, a 9.5% drop in orders was recorded at Klöber (office seating, conference and lounge furniture).

The 2018 financial year also looks promising
2018 has also got off to a great start. By the end of April, increases in incoming orders of 8.2% and in turnover of 8.4% had been recorded to complement the already high order volume.

The economic upswing in the office furniture sector remains clearly evident this year as does positive order development in the Sedus Stoll Group. The main driving force behind this is an issue which affects virtually all companies today: the organisation of their knowledge-based and creative processes.

People and their ideas are the most precious productive capital and also central to a company's success. The clear shift from manual tasks to mental labour and knowledge-based work cannot be stopped and the generational change in office settings is now in full progress.

As a technology pioneer and office furniture expert, Sedus has dealt intensively with the “Office of the Future” by market observation and research, especially on the topic of knowledge sharing and learning environments. Holger Jahnke, Speaker for the Sedus Stoll AG Board: “Future-proof office landscapes must be flexible in order to accommodate changes in activities and requirements. Our flexible and intelligent installations provide the ideal setting for concentrating, communicating, collaboration and contemplation. We help companies to make future- proof investments. To this end, we require an analysis of working processes and methods as well as an understanding of the goals and identity of the company in question.

Only then we can focus on creating a tailor-made plan. It goes without saying that our service also includes user instructions, accompanying services, products and availability guarantees. We call this the “Sedus Future Proof” package and it includes professional advice, comprehensive services, products which can be used in the long term and the confidence of not just being well equipped for the future, but also well positioned.”

2018 outlook: Sedus has reinvented the swivel chair
At this year's upcoming international office furniture trade fair Orgatec 2018, Sedus Stoll will be presenting several product innovations, at least two of which represent milestones in the company's history.

Are you trying to decide between buying used or new lab furniture? We can help! Read this article to figure out what's best for you.

Laboratories these days come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from the traditional “old school” designs that feature built-in casework to the newer generation of modular laboratory furniture”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Whether you’re building a brand new laboratory facility or updating your current lab, you are making a major investment. We take a deep dive into the pros and cons of searching for used laboratory furniture versus purchasing new laboratory furniture custom-made for your facility.

Laboratories these days come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from the traditional “old school” designs that feature built-in casework to the newer generation of modular laboratory furniture that can be reconfigured easily — even disassembled and moved to new locations when necessary.

7 Points to Consider When Deciding Between Used Lab Furniture Vs. New

Changes happen. Perhaps you are designing a brand-new facility, updating or expanding your current laboratory, or looking for a ‘home’ to house an expensive new piece of test equipment. When change happens, what are your options? Is there a strategic approach to follow when looking at the pros and cons of used versus new lab furniture?

1. Is Buying Used Lab Furniture the Most Cost Effective Solution for My Laboratory?

While you can sometimes get excellent deals at auction and liquidation sales, you can’t always assume that used laboratory furniture is always the cheaper option, particularly over the long run.

Having said that, if you can afford to take the time required to attend public auctions and liquidation sales, you may find significant deals on used laboratory furniture that’s being retired from government offices, schools or labs that have gone out of business.

However, you might find you are competing with furniture brokers who are looking to acquire inventory to sell online at a significant markup. That’s why it pays to get a competitive quote (from Formaspace, for example) before you go shopping. In many cases, you’ll find it’s more cost effective to order exactly what you need.

2. Avoid Some of the Common Pitfalls when Shopping for Used Laboratory Furniture

Travel time is a major consideration when buying used lab furniture. Do you have time to take this on?

You really need to inspect the goods in person with your own eyes — even with high-resolution photos and video, flaws such as mismatched hardware, poorly fitting doors and shelves, missing keys, etc. are difficult to spot without taking a look in person.

If you are the one making the purchasing decision for a big lab construction or renovation project, it’s all falls on you to convince the architect or construction manager that used equipment in question is suitable for the job. Most architects and construction planners may balk at the potential risk involved and want to go with a known quantity, e.g. new furniture.

3 Will Used Lab Furniture (Versus Laboratory Furniture Which is New) Blow a Hole in Your Construction Schedule?

Project planning is another issue.

In some cases, used laboratory furniture can be a boon — it’s possible to save a significant amount of money if you are in the right place at the right time and fortunate enough to get a good deal on furniture that’s in good condition.

However, this approach can also lead to some significant issues when it comes to construction planning.

First, you’ll have to arrange for the disassembly and transportation of the used furniture to your site.

Will the lab furniture be damaged in transit? This is especially true of casework type furniture, which is hard to remove without damaging it. If it is damaged, how will you source a replacement part for an ‘orphan’ piece of used furniture?

Next, if it’s a big installation, the furniture will need to be stored to give you time to plan the new laboratory layouts.

In this case, the space planners will be working out of their regular sequence. Instead of doing programming studies to decide the optimal layout, space planners will have to come up with a design that incorporates the used furniture components you have purchased.

Sometimes this works out OK in the end, but oftentimes it’s actually a longer process overall for designers to measure used furniture components and come up with a workable design.

The extra time and effort to do this additional work needs to be taken into account as it might make ordering new laboratory furniture that’s designed to fit your preferred floor plan exactly a more cost-effective solution.

4. Can You Get the Most Efficient Lab Layout When Purchasing Used Lab Furniture?

Another aspect to consider when looking at used laboratory furniture is whether the end result will be something you want — or too much of a compromise.

When the design is driven by what you find and not what you need, there can be quite a few tradeoffs.

Will you be wasting valuable square footage with a less-than-ideal layout?

Is there enough custom storage to hold the equipment you have, or will your employees spend too much time shuffling equipment back and forth from storage areas?

Will there be large gaps that are hard to clean because the furniture doesn’t fit in the available space?

Does the used laboratory furniture have ergonomic features, such as sit-to-stand worksurfaces, which can help reduce fatigue for your lab workers?

5. Can You Live With Other People’s Mistakes?

There is a bright line between “vintage” and “used”.

While we find vintage tools to be charming historical artifacts, the reality is that heavily ‘used’ items often reflect a history of misuse and abuse. After all, there is likely a good reason the furniture has been liquidated.

Are you willing to compromise?

Multiply auf dem Londoner Design Festival – ein frischer Blick auf die Architektur des Morgens

Die faszinierende „MultiPly”, ein modularisches Pavillon aus Brettsperrholzplatten vom Tulpenbaumholz, kann man ab 15. September 2018 in London ansehen können.

LONDON, UK, May 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Die faszinierende „MultiPly” („Vervielfachung”) – den Entwurf eines modularischen Pavillons aus Brettsperrholzplatten vom Tulpenbaumholz vorgefertigt, wird man ab 15. September 2018 in dem Sackler Courtyard des Victoria & Albert Museums (V&A) ansehen können. Die Autoren des Kooperationsprojekts sind: Waugh Thistleton Architects, ARUP und der American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC).

„MultiPly“ ist ein der führenden Projekte für diesjähriges Londoner Design Festival – die jährliche Feier des Designs in der britischen Hauptstadt. Es besteht aus einer Reihe von miteinander verbundenen Räumen, die ineinandergreifen und sich überschneiden, und öffnen den Besuchern neue Blickwinkel auf das Entwerfen und Bauen unserer Häuser und Städte.

In seinem Kern berührt „MultiPly“ zwei der größten Herausforderungen unserer Zeit: den akuten Bedarf an Wohnraum und die dringliche Bekämpfung des Klimawandels. Das Projekt fusioniert zwei wesentlichen Aspekte: das Baukastensystem mit vorgefertigten Elementen aus nachhaltigen Baumaterialien.

„Hauptziel dieses Projekts ist es, eine öffentliche Debatte über die Lösung von Umweltproblemen durch innovatives Bauen zu erschwinglichen Preisen anzustoßen”, so Andrew Waugh, Mitbegründer von Waugh Thistleton. „Wir befinden uns mitten in einer Krise, was Wohnraum und CO2-Emissionen betrifft. Wir glauben, dass das Bauen mit vielseitigen, nachhaltigen Baustoffen wie Tulpenbaum ein wichtiger Beitrag zur Lösung dieser Probleme ist.”

Tagsüber verspricht das neun Meter hohe Bauwerk aus Tulpenbaumholz eine verspielte, spannende Attraktion zu werden. Die labyrinthartige Installation wird die Besucher über eine Reihe von Treppen, Korridoren und offenen Räumen führen und ihnen das Potential von Holz in der Architektur vor Augen führen. Abends wird der Pavillon dezent beleuchtet sein und so zu einem stillen, besinnlichen Ort, den Besucher zum Nachdenken über die Schönheit dieses natürlichen Baustoffs anregen.

„Der Pavillon lässt die Menschen im vergnüglichen Auf und Ab über Treppen und Brücken Raum und Licht erkunden”, meint Waugh.

„MultiPly“ ist von hoher visueller Transparenz, damit man die Aussicht durch die Fassade auf den Innenhof des Museums genießen kann. Die Besucher werden zur Erkundung des Bauwerks gelockt, der ihnen neue, sorgfältig ausgewählte Ausblicke auf die denkmalgeschützte Fassade des V&A bietet

Das dreidimensionale Bauwerk wird im Baukastensystem mit 17 CLT-Modulen aus amerikanischem Tulpenbaum mit digital erstellten Verbindungen gefertigt. Wie flach verpackte Möbel zum Zusammenbauen, werden die Bauelemente als Bausätze angeliefert, die vor Ort unter geringem Aufwand in weniger als sieben Tagen montiert werden können. Da der Pavillon aus vorgefertigten Modulen besteht, kann er leicht nach dem Londoner Design Festival abgebaut- und woanders wieder aufgebaut werden.
„Das Architekturbüro Waugh Thistleton Architects spielt seit Jahrzehnten eine Vorreiterrolle bei der innovativen Nutzung von Holz als Bau- und Werkstoff. „Der Pavillon „MultiPly“ erforscht eine neue, nachhaltigere Bauweise, bei der ein reichlich verfügbarer Kohlenstoffspeicher wie amerikanischer Tulpenbaum in einem Baukastensystem genutzt wird”, sagt David Venables, der Europadirektor des AHEC. „Der AHEC hat schon mit vielen erstklassigen Architekten zusammengearbeitet, darunter David Adjaye, Amanda Levete, Alex de Rijke, Alison Brooks und jetzt Waugh Thistleton, um die herausragenden statischen, ästhetischen und umweltfreundlichen Eigenschaften von Brettsperrholz (CLT) aus amerikanischem Tulpenbaum hervorzuheben.”

Die zuständige Projektleiterin bei Arup, Carolina Bartram, kommentierte: „CLT aus Laubholz bei Installationen wie „The Timberwave“, „The Smile“, „Endless Stair“ und jetzt auch bei „MultiPly“ einzusetzen, bietet uns eine spielerische Möglichkeit, mit diesem haptisch angenehmen und anpassungsfähigen Baustoff zu experimentieren und Innovationen zu schaffen. Die scheinbar simplen, aufeinandergeschichteten Bauelemente beinhalten komplexe Ingenieurleistungen, deren Attraktivität durch den Aufstellungsort im gerade fertiggestellten, eleganten Sackler Courtyard im V&A noch gesteigert wird. Es ist eine große Ehre für uns als Ingenieure des Sackler Courtyards auch an der bautechnischen Planung von „Multiply“ beteiligt zu sein.”

MEHR ÜBER BRETTSPERRHOLZ (CLT) AUS TULPENBAUMHOLZ
Als Brettsperrholz (engl.: cross-laminated timber, CLT) werden im Bauwesen kreuzweise verleimte Massivholzplatten bezeichnet, die als Bauteile für Wände und Böden bis hin zu gesamten Tragwerken eingesetzt werden können. CLT, auch Kreuzlagenholz genannt, wird aus in Längs- und Querlage rechtwinklig zueinander flach geschichteten Holzlamellen gefertigt. Dadurch weist es – ähnlich wie Furniersperrholz – eine hohe Dimensionsstabilität in beide Richtungen auf. Im Verhältnis zu seinem Gewicht ist es leistungsfähiger als Stahl und Beton. In der Fertigung können sehr genaue Abbundmaße eingehalten werden, so dass dieser Baustoff ideal geeignet ist für einen hohen Vorfertigungsgrad und schnelle Montage, was die Bauzeit um etwa 30 Prozent verkürzt.
Brettsperrholz wird meist aus Nadelhölzern hergestellt. Zusammen mit dem Ingenieurbüro Arup experimentiert der AHEC schon seit einigen Jahren mit CLT aus dem schnell wachsenden Laubholz des nordamerikanischen Tulpenbaums. Die Lamellen werden zwar aus den USA eingeführt, aber die Kreuzlagenhölzer werden im aufstrebenden CLT-Fabrikstandort in Schottland hergestellt. Tests zeigten, dass Tulpenbaumholz eine erheblich höhere Festigkeit als Fichtenholz aufweist; außerdem ist sein Erscheinungsbild hochklassiger.

MEHR ÜBER DEN AHEC
Seit über 20 Jahren betreibt der American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) herausragende Absatzförderung für amerikanische Laubhölzer in Europa. Der Verband hat ihnen dadurch ein kreatives und unverwechselbares Image verschafft. Seine Unterstützung gestalterischer Projekte wie „The Wish List“, „Endless Stair“ und „The Smile“ für das Londoner Design Festival stellen die Leistungsfähigkeit dieses nachhaltigen Rohstoffs unter Beweis und liefern wertvolle schöpferische Anregungen.

Der AHEC war Vorreiter bei Umweltverträglichkeitsprüfungen (UVP), die inzwischen auch in anderen Sektoren durchgeführt werden. Dabei werden eine Reihe von Umweltparametern gemessen: der Primärenergieverbrauch aus erneuerbaren und nicht-erneuerbaren Quellen, das Treibhaus-, Versauerungs- und Eutrophierungspotential, sowie das Potential für photochemische Ozonbildung.

We provide the creative direction and functionality, but the client can ultimately create options that perfectly suit their needs using a wide range of finishing and sizing options.”

— Jeff Turk

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — What do you get when you mix unprecedented quality, and a sense of adventure with a relentless desire for innovation? You get a line of office furniture that exceeds expectations on every level, and is poised to completely change the way we think about “off the shelf” contract solutions. Enter Weldmarx™ by Formaspace.

Even if you weren’t able to catch the debut at NeoCon 2017 in Chicago, you’ve likely already heard the buzz about Weldmarx™. This bold, industrial-inspired collection provides a coordinated solution for a wide-range of modern office settings, and allows for ultimate flexibility through customizable options.

“When I say ‘custom’ I mean truly customizable,” said Formaspace CEO, Jeff Turk when describing the limitless options of the new Weldmarx™ collection. “We provide the creative direction and functionality, but the client can ultimately create options that perfectly suit their needs using a wide range of finishing and sizing options.”

This sleek new line is comprised of mix-and-match components including private workstations, sit-to-stand desks, flexible use conference tables, benching, storage solutions and communication boards, all designed to work seamlessly together in any environment.

A History of Innovative Industrial Furniture Design

While many manufacturers have found themselves playing catch-up to meet the quickly evolving needs of the modern office, Formaspace has a firm history of solution-based innovation and the industrial-chic aesthetic that dominates the office design landscape of today. This ability to solve notoriously difficult logistical scenarios has allowed them to approach the office furniture market from an authentic industrial perspective.

“Formaspace has this industrial, lab heritage,” CEO Jeff Turk shared with Business of Furniture Magazine earlier this year. “Brands like West Elm and Crate & Barrel are trying to look like something industrial. This is really our heritage.”

As more and more companies tear down cubicles and opt for more open, collaborative office spaces, a whole new host of furnishing needs has arisen. Much like every other development, Formaspace has made since its inception, the move into office furniture was a natural response to demand. Innovators at Formaspace were first approached by several of the largest furniture dealers on the west coast as well as architects from all over the country. These industry leaders were looking for the style, quality, and durability that Formaspace is known for, but in a format that would be accessible to traditional contract furniture dealers. Formaspace industrial designers were up to the challenge, and after nearly three years of development and testing, the company’s premier line was ready for launch.

Ever driven to go above and beyond for their clientele, the Formaspace think tank didn’t stop at style, quality, and affordability. They wanted their new line to embody the fun, multi-functionality of the modern office culture while also promoting employee health and wellness through effective ergonomic designs.

#NETworking – 5-in-1 Ping Pong Conference Table

In addition to more traditional pieces, the Weldmarx™ office line debuted with a funky wood and metal ping-pong table, which functions both as a conference table and two separate, height adjustable collaboration tables. Form, function, fun: a representation of the balance found in the culture of the modern workplace.

Blazing a New Trail

Even with a proven record of solving some of the most difficult industrial design and logistic cases, this new foray into office design was not without risk. It takes more than confidence to plunge boldly into a new market. It takes a sense of adventure. Since acquiring the company in 2006, CEO Jeff Turk has imbued Formaspace with his own adventurous spirit and dedication to exceeding expectations.

“Our industrial laboratory projects have literally taken us from the bottom of the ocean all the way to the top of some of the world’s highest mountains. I knew if we could do that well we could create a line of office furniture that was stylish, but had that same flexibility and durability,” CEO Jeff Turk explained.

A born entrepreneur, Turk sold his first company in high school before setting off to hone his talents at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Both during and after college, Turk worked with dozens of start-ups on 4 continents. His thrill-seeking extends from business ventures to amassing wild experiences from braving strange international cuisine to jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. And that’s just on his days off.

When he’s not transforming small companies into Inc. 5000 favorites, Turk spends his time in service to humanity. He helped obtain over $1 billion in desperately needed debt relief for a West African country and is currently a volunteer search and rescue helicopter pilot for Texas Search and Rescue.

Just the Beginning

If the immediate response to the Weldmarx™ line is any indication of future success, Formaspace is poised to become a pillar of the contract furniture industry. A deep commitment to innovation, quality manufacturing and sustainable practices has set them apart from the status quo and opened the door to limitless office design possibilities, ensuring that no matter where trends move, Formaspace will be there to provide a solution.

10 Trends Driving IT Infrastructure Towards Hybrid Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing

Separation of Responsibilities

Separation of Responsibilities

What's the future of your network infrastructure? It might be time to move towards hybrid cloud computing. Read the 10 trends that are driving the switch!

By 2020, a corporate “no-cloud” policy will be as rare as a “no-internet” policy is today”

— Gartner

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In response to a recent Gartner report predicting ever faster adoption of IT cloud solutions, we look at 10 trends that will drive traditional, on-premises enterprise IT shops toward hybrid cloud computing technology solutions.

First, let’s start off with the provocative prediction by Gartner:

“By 2020, a corporate “no-cloud” policy will be as rare as a “no-internet” policy is today.“

That’s a pretty strong statement — one that should give pause for tech professionals at companies where the IT infrastructure relies entirely on on-premises enterprise data centers at the exclusion of external cloud services.

So let’s unpack this prediction by looking at the top IT infrastructure trends that will drive most of the non-cloud holdouts toward hybrid cloud computing.

1. Enterprise Software Vendors are Aggressively Pushing Customers Toward Cloud Solutions

First up, is a marked shift by the major ERP software vendors towards a “cloud-first” development strategy.

As evidence of this trend, Microsoft recently announced a major restructuring (with thousands of layoffs) that are intended to help its Azure cloud services offering catch up with the industry’s breakaway leader, Amazon’s AWS.

The bottom line? The newest features and most exciting capabilities will appear first on cloud architecture solutions. This means that traditional “meat and potatoes” ERP and CRM packages running on local, on-premises enterprise data centers are at risk of falling into a legacy software death spiral — as vendors nudge enterprises toward more “modern” cloud solutions.

2. Rapid Uptake of IaaS and PaaS Changes the Enterprise Applications Landscape

Gartner expects that revenue from Infrastructure as Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) will grow to more than $55 billion by 2020, a figure that may exceed the revenue from hardware server sales.

This rapid adoption underscores the philosophical change brought about by cloud computing. We’re evolving from a software-centric mindset (where IT teams were responsible for all aspects of deployment, from hardware to software) to a new, multi-provider world where companies access computing infrastructure (IaaS) or fully-tested software stacks (PaaS) to run their data on a “power by the hour” basis.

3. Younger Generation of IT Talent Views Cloud Solutions as the New Normal

Just as younger workers who were born digital (sometimes referred to as digital natives), the youngest generation of IT developers that got their start (often by building websites) have grown up on a steady diet of hacking open source software solutions (such as the popular LAMP stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) together with cloud-based storage solutions from DropBox or Amazon’s popular AWS (Amazon Web services).

In a world where companies are doing whatever they can to attract tech-savvy young professionals living in hip urban areas, companies need to keep in mind that IT job candidates will likely elect to work on modern cloud services implementations, adding additional pressure on companies to adopt cloud solutions.

4. Companies with On-Premises IT Infrastructure Will Opt for Hybrid Cloud Computing Over Pure Cloud Solutions Due to Continuity of Business (COB) and Vendor Control Issues

Do you remember the old saying “Don’t outsource what you can do yourself?”

The meaning of this traditional piece of sage business advice is that once you lose the expertise to understand what the consultants or vendors are doing, you will ultimately lose control of your business process “know how” — leaving you vulnerable to outside factors beyond your control.

This mindset (which is perfectly valid!) is likely one of the main reasons that quite a few companies have yet to adopt any form of cloud technology: they fear they will be relinquishing too much control to outside vendors (and leaving them beholden to vendors who will be difficult to swap out for a different vendor.)

This feeling of “lack of control” is further exacerbated by concerns about COB (continuity of business) when the unthinkable happens — the internet goes down, perhaps for a long, long time.

Given these scenarios, it’s not surprising that Gartner predicts companies with “legacy” on-premises IT infrastructures will choose hybrid cloud computing as their first “baby” step into cloud solutions.

(Even internet giants like Facebook are moving some of their operations off the public cloud by building their own internal, private cloud infrastructure. Read more about how IBM lost the Facebook’s WhatsApp cloud business here.)

As we’ll see next, cloud vendors like Amazon AWS are happy to make the transition to hybrid cloud computing as smooth as possible.

5. Major Cloud Services Vendors Make Transition to Hybrid Cloud Computing Relatively Painless

Given the control and business continuity concerns that businesses have about making a transition to cloud services (see the previous item), vendors like Amazon AWS are going out of their way to make it easy to extend existing on-premises IT infrastructure with hybrid cloud computing capabilities.

For example, Amazon has developed a comprehensive set of tools to help IT departments incorporate many of the benefits of cloud computing by providing software that allows existing tools, such as LDAP directory services or on-premises SAP implementations, to access cloud-based storage seamlessly.

As a result, it’s much easier to make the transition to hybrid cloud computing. (Implementing pure cloud solutions, in contrast, remains a much bigger step, which usually involves re-architecting the software applications themselves.)

6. Today’s Users Have Higher Expectations for Accessing ERP/Big Data Remotely from Mobile Devices

So far we’ve looked at the trends driving companies toward cloud computing from the technology implementation side of things.

That’s only part of the picture.

Our new website www.olivewoodproducts.com is online

Olivewood products for the US market

Olive wood bowls for the US market

Olive wood chopping boards for the US market

– Clear, easy to use and attractive –

Eat42 GmbH (None:None)

BAD AIBLING, BAVARIA, GERMANY, May 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With a redesigned design concept, a modern shop system, attractive imagery and optimized for mobile devices, our new website offers all interested parties an overview of all olive wood products such as: bowls, chopping boards, mortars, kitchen utensils and chess boards.

With a new design, we have completely redesigned our website under the title "Art from Nature". The main goal was to create an original design and maximum usability of the website on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

On the new page, we present the olive wood products with new expressive images, so that our customers, partners and interested parties can best be inspired and informed. Conscious of a black background to put the product and its uniqueness in the limelight.

The special raw material olive wood is the basis of uniqueness

Adhesions, various warm shades of brown and fine cracks make olive wood unique and unmistakable. Olive wood also has antiseptic properties, making it ideal for use in your kitchen. All olive wood products are finally treated with low-odor cooking oil. This protects against dehydration and other negative environmental influences, such as heat, cold and moisture. Although it sounds logical, we do not use olive oil as it could become rancid after some time. The products thus remain durable and you will enjoy it for a long time.

Many of our customers use our products as a gift idea, such as a large fruit bowl for the wedding, the extraordinary cutting board for Father's Day or the chessboard for Christmas.

The basis for an original gift is the idea

To inspire here too, you will find a blog on our site, where we inform about the various application possibilities of the products, introduce individual implementations of our customers or present special gift ideas.
