Open-minded, generous and inviting – that’s how impress presented itself to the international public at Interzum 2013.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers and visitors who share our enthusiasm for special flooring and furniture surfacing and who have given us so much pleasure with their interest and praise.
Visitors from five different continents engaged in a lively exchange, discussing trend colours and structures for the creative design of furniture in the years to come. It was an inspirational event for all designers, who will continue to reap the benefit of its positive energy and harvest its innovative fruits.
We were especially pleased with the very positive reception of our decors, their quality and colour design met with great approval from all sides.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.

The surface has gained disproportionately high importance over the past years. It is no longer perceived as a cosmetic, somewhat colourful but functionless accessory matter. Today we know that we obtain our first emotional access to any object through its surface. The visual quality and surface feel are of highest importance.
As design-oriented decor printers we develop surfaces that visualize the zeitgeist. We aim to support our customers with the right product at the right time. In the development of the collection we therefore pay particular attention to well-coordinated structure and colour ranges. Whether in furniture design or in the design of new flooring – the need of our customers for attractive and commercially successful products is always our utmost priority. And once again we are inviting our visitors to join us on an inspiring journey through the newest decor worlds.
We not only prioritize the development of decors; for us the combination of structures and 3-D effects is just as important. A sense of wonder can only be achieved in the creation of authenticity that takes all facets of the surface design into consideration.
As a modern company we are constantly aware of the fact that environmental sustainability and the conservation of resources are currently playing a decisive role in the development of new products. This is why we are continuously testing new technologies in our laboratories, in order to meet this challenge.
For more than three years impress has been offering itec foils as part of its range. This effect foil with its extraordinary optical and haptic properties can, in many instances, replace real wood veneer.
With our innovative product “IPL” – Impress Paper Lam – we have succeeded in developing an impregnation that, with considerable savings in energy, enables our customers to produce laminates of outstanding quality.
We’d also like to mention the current Austrian Environmental Award where impress was able to score points with its environmentally-friendly melamine mix, which replaces petroleum-based resins with molasses (a by-product of sugar refining).
The development of new surfaces can only be a successful symbiosis of the latest technology, environmentally-friendly production processes and modern design. As an innovative and future-oriented company we see it as our task to convey this process in its entirety and to live by it on a daily basis.

Este año, impress decor GmbH se presentó por primera vez en la Feria del Diseño “moodFORM” de Polonia. La celebración tuvo lugar del 27 al 30 de mayo de 2010. Con los innovadores proyectos filiales “arena DESIGN” y “Top Design Awards 2010”, la Feria estableció unos acentos únicos con respecto al diseño moderno de productos. Dos papeles decorativos diseñados por impress (”Shimo Ash” y “Xysta”) incluso fueron seleccionados por el jurado de expertos como candidatos para el “Top Design Award 2010”.
La celebración se presentó con conferenciantes de primer rango. Aparte de los nombres conocidos como el Prof. Luigi Collani, hay que destacar especialmente a Karim Rashid, quien pronunció como headliner un discurso inspirador sobre el tema del diseño como parte de la vida diaria.
El jefe de diseño de impress, Daniele Merla, pronunció en la Feria un discurso sobre el “Concepto de siete ciudades” con referencia al desarrollo de nuevos papeles decorativos que resultan de las influencias culturales, espirituales y estéticas de las grandes ciudades. Con el ejemplo de Curitiba, una ciudad exótica desde el punto de vista europeo, presentó impresiones de ambientes y lugares extraordinarios, los cuales le inspiraron para crear un nuevo diseño de motivos con influencias brasileñas (Amazonas, Shimo Ash y Olympia).
La visualización artística desarrollada por “impress Design” de las tres fases del proceso creativo fue el hilo conductor y actuó como nexo de unión entre información y arte funcional moderno.
Los dos motivos nominados de impress “Xysta” y “Shimo Ash”:
