The company discovers new paths for innovative products with new materials and unusual applications: reliable and authentic.
Thomas Trenkamp founded Carpet Concept Objekt-Teppichboden GmbH in Bielefeld in 1993. The Rhinelander has been an office carpet specialist for a good 20 years now and has first-class knowledge of the market. He has architects and interior designers as partners ensuring that he designs new products with an overall perspective. The company’s talent for innovation ensures its success worldwide. Carpet Concept sets standards in the market.
Carpet Concept ensures the high demands of quality and of the modern age in its weaving mill in the Thuringian town of Münchenbernsdorf. Designs are created, tested, modified and manufactured here. The region is well-known for its particular qualifications in this area: since the start of the 19th century, Thuringia has been one of the major centres of fabric manufacture in Europe.
After German reunification, Thomas Trenkamp discovered this weaving wonder and made the mill a think-tank of the future. With the growth of Carpet Concept and the integration of the carpet factory into the company in 2004, the factory became the centre of product development.
Carpet Concept is passionate about inventing new woven carpets. The brand stands for innovative technologies and pioneering design. The further development of the world’s oldest craft is part of every new collection. Which is why Carpet Concept is just as well known for its exceptional products as it is for its inquisitiveness and technological inventiveness.
A weaving kitchen has been integrated into the historic complex of the Carpet Concept Factory. Here customers, architects and planners can enjoy an evening of cooking with Carpet Concept employees. In one of the old factory buildings that looks onto the pattern loom and the museum, guests can enjoy the experience of cooking together and unwind in a relaxed atmosphere as they talk about craftsmanship, design and technology.
Cooking in the weaving mill became a highlight for the entire industry – as an out-of-the-ordinary event with customers or as part of the “Tour of the Modern Age”. Together with partners, the company invites you to go on a voyage of discovery through the history of weaving and to the nearby birthplaces of the classical modern age.
