An amazing week in Milan went by in a flash. The exchange with you will remain in our best memories. Thank you very much for coming and for the exciting discussions. We leave this eventful week highly motivated and look forward with confidence to the next exciting topics that are already casting their shadows ahead: The Salone di Aschau in July will be close to nature and summery, while Orgatec 2024 in Cologne will be focused and creative. Stay tuned.

Cooperation with PB 0110

A surprising trio even at first glance: the idea of mobility and flexible working was the inspiration for the cooperation between Tecta and PB 0110, resulting in an ensemble made from the same hand-picked leather: the D4 folding chair by Marcel Breuer with a new matching stool. In addition, a side bag that stands like an object in the room and can function as furniture, created by artist and designer Ayzit Bostan. A group, functional and emotional. Designed for the flexible office and manufactured in elaborate bag making.

The collaboration between PB 0110 and Tecta began at a meeting in Lauenförde. „The place vibrates,“ says Philipp Bree. „The Tecta cantilever chair museum inspired us to think further about the suspension of home and office. We are on the move, becoming increasingly mobile and nomadic. Having all the important things with you provides security. This is how the new combination of bag, armchair and stool came about.

The idea for the bag was developed by Ayzit Bostan, who Philipp Bree invited for the project. She designed the elegant shape, which is reminiscent of a boat. „I based the proportions of the bag on those of the D4“, she says, „both should complement each other harmoniously“. The result is an object that is large enough to store your personal office, valuable enough to be made to last, and elegant enough to enter into a dialogue with Breuer‘s folding chair. Marcel Breuer already had the vision of designing a light and flexible piece of furniture for boats or tennis courts when he developed this beautifully shaped chair. Ayzit Bostan was inspired by this idea. A large base that fits a laptop, the sides not too high so that you can look inside: the bag has internal compartments and recessed zips to keep things tidy in the office and when travelling.

After the bag and the D4 folding chair corresponded with each other, the collection lacked a stool as a mobile work element. Here, too, Ayzit Bostan was inspired by the Breuer model and adopted the detail of the tubular steel runner. The collaboration resulted in a stool that fits naturally into the collection. Just like the armchair, it can be folded to save space and can also be hung on the wall.

Elegance, fine details and an exceptional leather quality characterise the three objects and unite them. „With the D4, I wanted a lively leather as a contrast to the hard tubular steel,“ reports Philipp Bree. „The ensemble had to be made of the same natural leather. This was not an easy process, as the bag is thinner and more supple at around 1.5 mm leather. The armchair and stool needed a thicker, 3.5 mm material. I found both at Lake Constance in a family business that still uses traditional dyeing methods.“ The manufacturing quality that PB 0110 and Tecta stand for is evident in the details: highly polished tubular steel, Täschner‘s expertise in hand-picked leather, carefully crafted seams and a fine brass buckle for the backrest of the D4. A trio that becomes more beautiful with time and makes its owners look elegant – whether in black or natural-coloured leather.

Stacked with a view
»Prism« by Pascal Hien

The colorful Prism stool by Pascal Hien attracted the attention of the trade visitors and was a great pleasure to use.

A nod to Prouvé with a strong graphic gesture: the Prism stool diffuses light and creates possibilities. Modularity meets combinability.

„There‘s a punch line to this new piece of furniture,“ says Pascal Hien with amusement. „Tecta is a cat family – and the Tecta Cat immediately moved into the stool.“

This may be due to the special shape devised by the designer from Berlin. There is a nod to Prouvé – the circular radius. A reminder of the French designer, but not a provoked one. Because the inspiration for the new, uncomplicated seating furniture was a different one. Pascal Hien comes from the office world, that cosmos in which flexible spaces are needed in which workshops and meetings take place, sometimes with five, but also with 50 people. For these situations, Pascal Hien had in mind a stool that could later be stacked and retracted into a corner. It has become much more than that. On the one hand, a place that is made for nomadic working. The hollow space under its seat can be used to elegantly store a jacket and bag.

At the same time, it makes a statement in the room thanks to its diamond shape and striking mouldings. The edges are folded and allow dimensions and colour shades to become tangible. The circular radius is a simple but graphically strong gesture. It turns the furniture into a sculpture and reduces the weight of the 4 mm thick aluminium sheet to the desired manageability. The colours, which range from trendy to homely, are great for playing with. Once Prism has been used, it doesn‘t need to hide away again – you can use it as a sidetable or build an entire room divider from it. Modularity and combinability, a new alliance. And that brings us straight to the inspiration: for the Prism, Pascal Hien thought of reliefs, which were the inspiration for him. Combinable shapes used by artists such as Karl Heinz Adler or sculptor Erwin Hauer for his openwork, light-diffusing walls. There are five colour variations for the small, clever object. A chameleon that can change its possibilities again and again. Even as a cat cave – well, why not?

Organic and perfect in form
M22 by Katrin Greiling

The new M22 table by Katrin Greiling is based on the organic shape of the familiar M21. The new, vertically perforated base frame lends the table a modern lightness without competing with the table top. A new generation of the classic!

Multitool for sitting
Reversal-Chair by Juri Roemmel


The Reversal Chair by Juri Römmel first caused astonishment and then open enthusiasm. Extreme flexibility and ergonomics meet contemporary form.

Arrivederci e grazie!
