The decor highlights of the fair were: Navarra Oak, Cydonia Oak and Madura Oak, three oak structures which, however, couldn’t be more contemporary or different. The leather-look Maroquin revealed itself as authentic and magnanimous and is a most interesting addition to the decor world, underlining the theme of material combinations with natural charm.

Navarra Oak
An oak with history and signs of aging. The special appeal of this oak is founded by the exciting cooperation of fine and rough, big and small. The contrasts of the structure are being harmonised and created by the interesting white pore.

Cydonia Oak
A new, unusual appearance with much room for fantasy. Cydonia Oak originates from a peeled veneer. However, the elegant, natural structure leaves a lot of room for individual interpretation. Depending on the colouration, it appears like metal, stone or glazed wood. A decor for those who like to experiment.

Madura Oak
Natural, distinctive planks merge through their soft colour gradients and hence create a moving, yet harmonious entirety. Fine cracks, discrete medullary rays and small, nicely molded knobs enliven the detail.

The 4th dimensionPress information

The 4th dimension is the environment in which we move. We perceive time in terms of change. With each stage, our perspective changes and everything appears in a new light. As time moves on constantly, sometimes faster, sometimes slower, we neither stand still physically or mentally, but change according to our requirements and preferences.

Every moment, every experience contributes to our knowledge and visions. If we consciously create these moments, they gain importance and authenticity. Place, time and aesthetics are in tune; intellect and emotions become one.

Based on this knowledge, the new impress design concept works with the idea of time – the time we have to ourselves and the time we spend with others. The time of growing-up requires a different kind of energy than the time of maturity. Activity needs an open space, intimacy needs a protective setting. Communication demands openness whilst recreation requires peace.

The impress collections take these needs into account. The colours and structures of “Time is Recreation“ are quiet and light, sensitive and harmonious. The decor world of “Time is Togetherness“ is stimulating, fresh, open and vital. For us “Time is Concentration“ is clear, transparent, full of character and subtle.

As the compact atmosphere of the world of decor becomes apparent during the development of colours and structures, new interpretations unfold and nuances find their right place.

impress Design Concept 2012/2013Press information

Where do we come from, where are we going?
The leitmotif of the impress collections took seven cities as its theme, created 2-D perspectives and went on to develop 3-D furniture sketches.

Now it has reached the fourth dimension and brings together the moment and the experience. With every new stage, our perspective changes and everything appears in a new light.

The more we focus on the design of the space we want to occupy, the clearer becomes our idea of how to live life to the full. We feel as if we’re in the right place at the right moment and take pleasure in unforgettable moments.

Colour and structure collections gain profile as they are accentuated by objects which command our attention and curiosity. The eye lingers, any irritation floats away, our thoughts and feelings are occupied with the picture, the idea. The personal interpretation of the setting provides a reference point for our memory.

The themes of our collections are tailored to suit individual people and their universal experiences. We are all familiar with such topics as Growing Up and Maturity, Recreation and Activity, Individuality and Togetherness and they generate mental images and narratives. Our aim is to highlight these ideas with colours and structures.

As a subsidiary of Constantia Industries AG, the impress decor Group directs production and distribution sites throughout the world with a total of more than 900 employees and a group turnover of € 255 m in 2011.

Brasil Safety & HealthPress information


„Safety & Health” Activity Week
October 2011 –
impress decor Brasil Ltda.

» View original Safety & Health article as PDF.

The annual activity week at impress decor Brazil this year was dedicated to important aspects on the subject of safety and health. At the Brazilian site, there were daily one-hour lectures for the 5 teams which had been chosen to represent the countries Austria, Germany, Poland, Russia and Spain on ways to significantly improve the company culture in relation to safety and health.

Alongside information on topics relevant to the subject, there was also an internal company competition to illustrate the theoretical information given, and to involve the participants in activities. The Brazilian team was made up of the organizers of the internal commission formed by members of the department for prevention of accidents, who were responsible for the smooth running of the event as well as for the scoring.

The participants confronted each other with high levels of motivation and enthusiasm. To begin with, they had to complete a quiz about safety and health issues. In the second part of the competition, the participants discovered a lot of interesting things about the five national teams: things they had in common, but also the differences became clear, for example, typical types of clothing in each country, national dishes and many other peculiarities. The teams then had to demonstrate their sports skills in a competition (gymkhana) during which donations were also collected which were used to provide food, milk and nappies to those in need.

The combination of general knowledge questions and sports skills suited the team representing Germany, who won in the end, followed by Russia, Spain, Poland and Austria. All team members received a t-shirt inspired by a national football strip as a souvenir, which had been created by the members of the Brazilian Design Center.

The week of events had been perfectly organized by the team from the Brazilian impress branch, and the successful mix of imparting information and sports challenges will provide the participants with many happy memories.

Safety & Health and Environment (SHE) is an integral part of the company culture throughout the impress Group. People’s health, together with training and qualification are central to high performance and high motivation. Therefore, the SHE programme implemented within the impress Group makes a lasting contribution to the value-added chain in the company.
