Thomas Richter about surface as second dimension to product design

Dornbracht Group Oberflächen

The Dornbracht Group regards surfaces and finishes as a distinct second dimension to product design. In addition to its form, the interplay of a product’s materials and colours also has a crucial impact on how it is perceived and its effect on the style, look and feel of a room. The fittings and washplaces / basins can for instance transform an interior by giving it a sense of timeless elegance, cool modernity or sensuous warmth. The latest trends and developments will be presented by Thomas Richter.
