The room concept FACHWERKRAUM celebrates its world premiere from 05.05.15 - 08.05.15
The location for this premiere has been programmatically selected: FACHWERKRAUM is a metal profile system as a foundation for carpenters and interior designers for the efficient furnishing of limited spaces.
We develop the corresponding profile as a foundation for the interior furnishing of limited spaces and look after the marketing. The added value from FACHWERKRAUM stays just about exclusively in your hands.
Not only the product, but also the utilisation is presented for the first time in Hall 4.2, Aisle E, Stand 15 in connection with the Federal Ministry of Economics specially created terrain “Young, innovative companies”
For this we completely furnished a container: Bed, bench, table, racks, shelves, coat rack … everything you need but on just 4 m².
Convince yourself of a totally novel concept, with its variability, not forgetting to take efficiency, ecology and trends into account – a concept that will help you set standards with your work.
We are looking forward to meeting you at our “nucleus” at the Interzum and invite you to visit us.

» The ZOW-Focus Theme 2015
„Standard furniture is a thing of the past – today’s customer wants to set his own personal accent by means of a wide variety of size, measurements, colours, structures, modules, decors as well as mounted and additional parts“
Iindividualisation was the focus theme of the ZOW. It would also be the FACHWERKRAUM theme if the functional and visual enlargement of limited spaces was not already the main focus.
» From the final report of the BAU
„Product solutions along with system solutions for the increase of energy and resource efficiency, environment and resource-friendly materials … were set center stage. Getting away from the technological and functional theme, it was particularly about how one shapes life and work in the city of the future"
This statement from the BAU 2015 is exactly in keeping with the solution approach of FACHWERKRAUM. Besides a thank you to our initiation partners and further exhibitors, interested in our project, we have nothing more to add.
» Imm 2015: 10 Trends and FACHWERKRAUM
1 German coziness
The limited space is by definition cozy. However for the stylists among furniture designers “clean surroundings” belong indispensably here, spaces which can then be richly filled with ornaments. This is exactly what FACHWERKRAUM allows for.
2 Black celebration
Black is back – or grey – or even houndstooth: When this is set systematically as an upholstered module, it is a wonderful contrast to the otherwise bright small room.
3 Private office
When your „private office“ should not be in your bedroom, then FACHWERKRAUM offers many convincing concepts to turn your junk room into one – even creating space for your visitors.
4 Back to tangibles
As we threaten to get lost in virtual room, we want to touch and be touched by our surroundings. FACHWERKRAUM is a partner for original carpenters and a playground for originals, reality and granny’s bric brac – just true values really!
5 Bathroom = room
The bathroom is quite often a smaller place however with FACHWERKRAUM it becomes a small room, which should not only collect carpets and chairs, but increase its living value decidedly with the efficient FACHWERKRAUM concept.
6 Digital Signing
Along with motion sensors and app-operated functions, we mean the lighting here. FACHWERKRAUM allows furniture to float. This is even nicer with the planned lighting concept.
7 Heavy Metal
Metal as a material and colour is back again. The heart – the interface of FACHWERKRAUM – is made from aluminum or stainless steel. At the same time we see visual austerity or with different modules opulence is also demonstrated: Bronze, silver gold!
As a targeted contrapoint it understands itself aptly with the linear “no nonsense” Bauhaus character of FACHWERKHAUS. The structure offers a basis for experiments in smaller spaces.
Apart from cradle to cradle – the demand of FACHWERKRAUM offers the admittance of modules for a perfect foundation for upcycling. The system innate griding benefits from the necessity of structure at the same time, highlighting the top quality of the upcycling solution.
This trend should have been noticed by the visitors themselves and as they were called upon to visit the House of Neri & Hu. The “guest of honour interiors on stage” created various high, small rooms with their own furniture at times. Did they know about FACHWERKRAUM … ?
» Virtual premiere
In the Mekka of the furnishing industry, Bielefeld, we started a new company FACHWERKRAUM – the high-quality furniture module system for limited spaces.
The new furniture system is based on the following considerations:
With the worldwide urbanisation, the need for furniture for limited spaces has increased.
A limited space has characteristics, which need special consideration.
To today there are no systematic solutions for furnishing.
A limited space has basic advantages, as far as efficiency and coziness is concerned.
Deficits of limited spaces are the functionality, manageability and sense of space.
FACHWERKRAUM eliminates these deficits and uses the actual facts of limited spaces optimally, to increase the living value. The solution-orientated approach to size animates architects, interior designers and carpenters to a wide variety of individual bracing. It includes existing architecture. FACHWERKRAUM uses the newest techniques and sets ecological measures according to the “cradle to cradle” principle.
