Nobody likes to be in a store having to sit on cheap chairs in a careless, sober atmosphere. The competition is massive. Impressive interiors make the difference. Interiors with armchairs like our lillus wembley. The emotional and comfortable seating increases awareness of the product range and the length of time we spend in the shop, especially in high-quality shop-fitting.

Prof. Moths Architekten, an interdisciplinary architecture firm from Hamburg, Germany, has shown how this works with the new sports department in the north German fashion house L&T Lengermann & Trieschmann.

2017 | Marineda City | La Coruña, Spain


Our lillus ball stools and ball armchairs find a new home not only in private living rooms, but especially in companies, restaurants, hotels & shop-fitting – like here in northwestern Spain. The Marineda City in La Coruña is one of the largest shopping centres in the country. Here, the lounge chair models wembley and nba increase awareness of the sports and fitness ranges of local retailers and invite you to linger in between breaks.

2006 | FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola | Zurich, Switzerland |
Rome, Italy

This is where it all began: In 2006, we developed a football chair – in the classic Telstar design of the 70s. It was for the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola and the events to present the trophy in Rome, Zurich and Athens, among other places. Together with the trophy, the chairs traveled around the world.

In the years after, other models followed. Formal revisions, a second, smaller shell, alternative under frames as well as more authentic materials. Today, our special seating furniture make it easy to fill spaces with the aura of the exceptional.

With our extraordinary ball chairs and ball armchairs we literally play the ball to you: all architects, designers, planners, interior decorators, as well as the sports industry, sporting goods manufacturers, sports service providers and sports management. Thanks to very special materials, a large type plan that allows numerous applications, and a wide array of customisation options.

We proudly present you with our most significant references and distinct outfitting projects. They show just how multifaceted «Style before Competition!» can be.
