Passion for unique fabric creations
From the initial idea to the finished product, the
creative process is always an exciting challenge for the 13-member Gebrüder Munzert design team. Using state of-the-art software, hand-drawn designs are implemented on-screen, allowing for later processing by the jacquard weaving department. Fabrics are dyed directly on the loom. Under the expert guidance of Hannes Neubert, approximately 400 new upholstery and decorative fabrics are created every year.
The name “Neubert” has been integral to design innovations at Munzert for three generations. Grandfather Edgar, father Heiner and now son Hannes have always been one step ahead of the curve with their very special feel for colours and new design trends. Together with his team of designers, product designers and colourists, Hannes Neubert comes up with more than 400 new design every year. His creations are always cutting edge, yet commercial.
“Design won’t save the world, but it does make it a better place to live.”
Hannes Neubert, Studio Head
For Tobias, the origin of creativity lies in how unique ideas are brought together, processed and then further developed. Throughout this process, however, the fabric and its purpose must remain clear. This unconventional approach allows Tobias’ designs to redefine what is possible. With its “Origami” product design, Gebrüder Munzert won over the expert jury of the Red Dot Award: product design 2013 and received the “Best of the Best” award. The fabric, which is reminiscent in its design of the Japanese origami paper-folding technique, was developed in the in-house studio of textile designer Tobias Batrla.
