Looking for perfection

'One must make things as simple as possible. But not more simple' - Albert Einstein

In order to achieve this, both our own designers as well as well-known external experts, work with Koinor. Hand in hand with designers ans experienced prototype builders, they work on the optimal implementation of the original idea, reduce forms, leave out what is superfluous or redefine. They thereby give our furniture their incomparable look. Sometimes austere, sometimes playful, sometimes modern, or classic. The characters of our furniture are as rich in variety as the personalities of our designers. That is what makes our collection so exciting.
