A great idea is starts out

The SPIN series is consistently extended with new family members and has advanced to become a timeless design classic.

Newness alone is too simple
For this reason, the KOMOT development team researches how products should actually be and what makes a product better. KOMOT explores what people want in a lamp, how rooms are really used, or how one can carry several cups filled to the brim without spills. Then, technical creativity comes into play—the most diverse solutions are sought, implemented, tested, and finally designed. KOMOT's aim is to understand what makes everyday activities simpler and easier; and in order to discover this, sometimes unusual paths have to be travelled along. The important thing, however, is that they lead to the goal.
Only an aesthetically pleasing product can be a better product. For KOMOT products top-quality, long-lasting materials are selected and good workmanship is highly valuated. KOMOT products have classic qualities.
