IMM Cologne 2020.
New products from Girsberger: Carim and Linar.

Following the IMM, we are pleased to provide you with a look back at our presence at this year’s trade fair.

We continued developing the Barra solid wood table, which we presented last year, and supplemented this successful model with the Carim bench, also designed by Atelier I+N, Nathan and Ismaël Studer. This is a minimalist and elegant bench that comes with a choice of an A-frame to match Barra or alternatively a sleigh leg frame, which means that it can also be combined easily with other table models. As well as the standard upholstery option, a version with button tufting is also offered, which gives the bench a luxurious and classic character. Carim is available with or without a backrest.

Furthermore, the Barra model has been enhanced with the introduction of an extendable version. With a smooth synchronous extension mechanism, tables in the standard lengths of 180 cm, 200 cm and 220 cm can be extended by an additional 100 cm. The legs remain in place while the extension can be pulled out instantly to create space for additional guests. At IMM, we presented a version in American walnut with sapwood and an oiled surface.

Another new product is the Linar solid wood table, designed by Mathias Seiler. Thanks to its four-legged, flat-steel structure, it has a sleek and slender appearance while also providing a high degree of stability, which allows for lengths of up to four metres. The edges of the solid wood tabletop are bevelled, further emphasizing the table’s sophisticated character. Our trade fair model was in American walnut without sapwood, with a black-oiled finish.

In the interior of our trade fair stand, a six-meter-long ash board – in the form of a high table – invited guests into a communicative central contact point. This unique piece showcased our particular expertise in procuring and processing exclusive types of wood – supplemented by a wall displaying Girsberger’s entire range of solid wood products in all surface options. One of Girsberger’s particularly unique characteristics is its ability to produce table tops in personally requested types of wood, which is guaranteed thanks to its own wood trading business and long-term storage facility.

In our range of seating solutions, the Nava multi-purpose chair designed by Tom Deacon – which is already available in a wide variety of upholstery and leg options – has been expanded to include a version in full-grain leather. There are 14 colours of leather to choose from. Moreover, the skid frame is now available with armrests. The standard version has oak armrests; the other options are black-stained oak and walnut.

Other table ranges showed the variety of possible combinations with current Girsberger products and a showcasing of particularly attractive table tops made from vibrant reddish European and American walnut, distinctive knotty oak, fiery-coloured elm and bright heartwood ash.
