summer news BY BRUNNER
“Individuals and their needs and wishes always come first. Then we design suitable furniture.”
Dear reader, New ideas are important for the world. Just imagine if there had never been a fish that thought of venturing on to land. Imagine everyday modern life without the wheel – and what would have happened if Johannes Gutenberg had not developed a method of movable type? We wouldn‘t even be able to send this message to you. Ideas make our world more comfortable and interesting. That applies to all areas, including our own. This is why we are constantly expanding the limits of feasibility to create products which set new benchmarks time and time again.
Our furniture is designed to push back and redefine boundaries. In short: Brunner lives for furniture that makes new things possible. And we have plenty of new things to report. This is why we have developed a summer collection to go along with the Summer News for the first time. In it, you can expect to see ten new products, all at once, from the Office and Public Spaces departments. However, we have not just developed new contract furniture – in this edition we are proud to also be able to introduce you to our new production facility: the Innovation Factory.
We are developing something new so that innovations can continue to happen. We ceremonially broke the ground for the construction of our new production facility the Innovation Factory on 15th May 2017. The modern, transparent building in Rheinau, Germany won‘t just be home to development work – thanks to the open architectural concept, cust omers will also be given the opportunity to watch the final assembly. The open design of the entire building ensures that the development and production processes are visible to our customers, helping us to convey the high quality of our product development processes. The Innovation Factory will become the visible heart of our innovative activities. When implementing new product ideas, we rely on the cooperation of external designers, expert suppliers, customers and our own engineers to develop innovative products.
And that will all be on display: the visible wooden structure of the industrial building provides a striking image that makes reference to the company‘s manufacturing concept – because a lot is made by hand during the production of our contract furniture. The building is split into the cafeteria, innovation, office, and assembly and dispatch areas. The Innovation Factory is a self-contained building on the company‘s own site with a logistics facility and a link through to the existing production hall. We will have to wait until the autumn for its official opening. Until then we are proud to present our very latest products to you. So, make yourself comfortable!
Summer is in the air.

Comfort is always within arm’s reach. Your elbows will not get in the way with this chair. With the plastic armrests integrated in its frame, the A-Chair knows how to please when it comes to comfort. And a good thing gets even better – you can sit one or even fifteen of them on top of one another. The A-Chair is so easy to stack that it’ll be no problem at all.
Why always look ahead? The A-Chair is a row chair and will amaze with its elegant appearance even when positioned away from the stage. A single A-Chair looks stunning enough, but you also have the option of filling entire rooms with them for the real wow factor. And you wonâ€™t even be able to notice the row linking devices, which are more or less invisible.
Gets things sorted. A-CHAIR 13
60Â° has never been so cool. Thanks to its intelligent design, the cellular system is just as extensive as its applications. The cells can be arranged flexibly, creating a suitable working environment for everyone.
Giving your ideas space to take shape. 17
Welcome to the smallest open-plan office in the world. 18
Now, you no longer need to think about going home when you think about your couch. With matching sofas, these cellular modules are even more versatile. Either as a comfortable work space or relaxed waiting area â€“ this seating arrangement simply works beautifully.
Always striking the right note. Itâ€˜s no coincidence that large numbers of people seem to gather in the vicinity of the crona light. That is either because the chair is particularly stunning or a true all-rounder â€“ thus ensuring it is always invited along to meetings. It is even more practical that you can grab a few at a time: up to five chairs can be stacked quite easily.
crona light bar
High culture. CRONA LIGHT BAR
With its characteristic design, crona light bar has not only raised the height of the seat shells within the crona range but has also become a benchmark for other bar stools. It offers an excellent range of design options: combine a beech or oak frame with a plastic shell in one of seven on-trend colours. Regardless of the combination, crona light bar is easy to maintain.
Defy the weather reports. Although the flat steel struts of the crona steel run in parallel, some surprising things also converge here: despite its robust design, it will help you to relax. Available in seven colours and with a special outdoor coating, crona steel makes a clear design statement â€“ indoors and outdoors.
Brightening up outdoor spaces. crona steel is the perfect outdoor chair that suits any outdoor environment and defies the weather, including the version with seat cushions. With water-resistant cushions made from our own range of fabrics, the right theme can be achieved on any terrace or balcony.
On top form no matter the height. 35, 55, 74 or 108 cm tall. break has dimensions to suit every taste. Itâ€˜s perfect for standing or sitting. Used in the lounge or as a bistro table â€“ break really stands out regardless of size and shape. Tall or short, it is a favourite for taking a break.
Our table top collection.
break looks great in a lounge area and even better if you simply place it wherever required. The five-star base is made of polished aluminium with a chromed supporting column, while the table top is available in many different shapes, sizes and colours â€“ to suit your needs.
Providing pure relaxation. If youâ€˜re often feeling the heat, why not just chill out? This armchair knows exactly what your back needs and adapts to it perfectly. So, put your feet up, relax and recharge your batteries.

Everyone will find room at the ray table, as its new oak legs offer plenty of legroom. Regardless of whether the table top is rectangular, round or curved, the slimline bevelled edge rounds the ray table off perfectly. Itâ€˜s almost a shame that you donâ€˜t even see its second new feature: the supporting structure now hides a groove for electrical connections so that cables can be hidden once and for all.
All about the base.

Club? Bar? Why not both? Coffee and milk, gin and tonic, fina club and fina bar: with their angled four-legged oak frame, these two fit together so well that every visit is a pleasure. And if you havenâ€˜t decided what you would like to order yet... the fina club table top is also available with NanoTec.
