Product design with world-renowned designers.
Instead of following in other’s footsteps, Kusch+Co is motivated by a drive for innovation with the aim of creating unique products developed in tandem with top designers. The new bench series 8000 has been designed by the creative heads of the renowned Porsche Design Studio and scooped the German Design Award 2013 with the commendation "Special Mention". Kusch+Co and Porsche Design Studio joined their creative forces a second time to develop the new Soft Seating Series 8080, geared towards exclusive lounges. Norbert Geelen is among Kusch+Co’s top designers, always coming up with out of the box solutions. He came up with the new seating concept 6000 São Paulo, a series consisting of task chairs as well as visitors and conference chairs with matching design aesthetics. The series Volpino, a universally suited series with progressive design features, was also penned by him. The idea for series 2750 Sóley was born in Iceland. This iconic folding chair, relaunched by Kusch+Co, was invented by the Icelandic designer and architect Valdimar Harðarson in the early 1980s and has achieved cult status. Kusch+Co commissioned a team of young designers hailing from the Nordic countries to design a “trilogy of wooden seating”. First up is 3000 Njord, a lounger with progressive design aesthetics, consisting of a modern-style seat shell made of polyester felt, embedded into a wooden frame. This award-winning design by Antonio Scaffidi & Mads K. Johansen, a budding young designer duo, scooped four international awards, such as the much-coveted "red dot design award: product design 2012", to name the best known example. Series 7750 Fjola is the second pillar of this trilogy, penned by the creative (Northern) light Anneke Bieger. Third in line is series 1010 Bina by Frank Person, a handy-sized, highly manoeuvrable wooden-frame side chair breathing new life into a plethora of environments.

‘Quality is irreplaceable’. Coined almost 70 years ago, this mission statement is still the cornerstone of Kusch+Co’s corporate philosophy. Each new series has to pass numerous quality tests, simulating the harsh reality of a contract chair’s life cycle. Each Kusch+Co product is characterized by superior craftsmanship. Before receiving the Kusch+Co seal of quality, each model has to stand up to the scrutiny of the company-own quality assurance, using far more exacting criteria than stipulated in any certification scheme. Each Kusch+Co product lives up to these high quality standards.
