The 2nd May 2022 was a special day, for our colleague Rüdiger W. and for all of us. When a colleague has been part of the company for three decades, that speaks for itself.

We wish our colleague a lot of fun in the future and say: "Congratulations & thank you Rüdiger!
Work on the new raumplus showroom at the company's headquarters in Bremen has begun. "The challenge was to take the step from a pure product presentation to living worlds in suggested spaces within the framework of our corporate architecture," says Heidi Pohle, raumplus Interior Designer.
On an area of 220m², a new concept is being implemented that is intended to arouse more emotions and stimulate the customers' imagination. We want to give our partners new furnishing ideas, while the showroom will continue to be used as a meeting room and for events. For this reason, a more sensible room layout and better walkways were one of the points we all wanted.
Within these living worlds, we present different products that are coordinated with each other, just as you would configure them for your own home.
We are excited about the final result. Are you too? Then come back again or subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date.
The intelligent room solutions and products produced by raumplus have passed the tests and are officially certified with the label: furniture. Made in Germany. Our walk-in wardrobes, built-in wardrobes, room dividers, chests of drawers and room doors may now adorn themselves with this label. Since 2020, the "Möbel Made in Germany" label has stood for the high quality of German furniture manufacturers, for innovation, durability and healthy living. The new label was defined by the renowned German Institute for Quality Assurance and Certification (RAL) and is set out in RAL-RG 0191. What do these awards mean for raumplus customers? One thing above all: they can be sure that they are buying quality products made in Germany. Or to put it in the words of the Association of the German Furniture Industry: "We have thus introduced certified proof of quality furniture from Germany".
We are pleased about this confirmation!

For the first time in 2022, news from raumplus can be found on its own landing page. As usual, the team shows the news of the Bremen-based company in January of the year. Actually present in Cologne at the imm, this year the novelties were packed into the "web garb". The new website, the material variety of the custom-made sliding doors, room dividers, sliding doors and solitaire furniture as well as the two new rooms of the 360° VR raumplus house are shown. On day seven of the raumplus News-Week, a raffle was also placed. There were two CREO Coffee Table to be won.
For a week now, our online trade fair stand and the raumplus house can be explored on screen in a 360° tour and the response has been great! Just like in analogue IMM times, dealers, press representatives, end consumers and interested parties are virtually "joining hands" at the raumplus stand - only this time virtually and thus without any risk of contagion. At most, there will be a crowd on our server, which is optimally prepared - just like our sales team, which will be happy to accompany visitors online on request.
The fact that many people take the time afterwards to express their approval and congratulations for this new way of presentation makes us very happy and also a little proud. From "Outstanding. We haven't seen anything like this (in our industry)" (Gruner + Jahr publishing group) to "Congratulations on the successful implementation! Super exciting to see what is possible" (Architonic) to "Inspiring. Applause!" (LinkedIn network), the undivided encouragement we receive through a wide variety of communication channels. Until the end of February, interested parties can visit us at the virtual trade fair 2021 with a click - at any time and from any location.
The digital raumplus house will remain accessible and experienceable online all year round and will continue to inspire with further rooms and products in the future.

We received two awards at this year's German Brand Award, the sixth edition of one of the most important German brand prizes: the virtual raumplus house was named »Winner« in the category Brand Communication - Digital solutions & Apps and also received a »Special Mention« as Brand Innovation of the year.
With 315 million contacts, the prize awarded by the Frankfurt-based German Design Council is the brand and marketing prize with the widest reach in the German-speaking world. Once a year, it honors the best in innovative brands, consistent brand management and sustainable brand communication. We are proud that our virtual house, which has been breaking all click records since its inauguration in January of this year, has even received two awards. This encourages us to continue pursuing innovative online paths in parallel to our classic (trade show) presence in order to be in direct contact with our customers at all times.
For the fourth time, the readers of "Wohnidee" have honored raumplus with the annual public award of the living magazine, determined by voting. More than 18,500 readers voted for their favorites in seven furniture categories ranging from beds and upholstery to lighting. Valuable end consumer votes that earned us first place in the "Wohnidee Reader Award 2019" in the "Wardrobes" category. Our walk-in wardrobe combination of tinted float glass sliding doors from the S1200 Air series and the matching Uno and Legno interior systems was very well received. Thus, after 2017, raumplus was once again able to accept the prize awarded at the IMM Cologne. We would like to thank you for the "excellent" choice and will be happy to face the readers' verdict with current products again this year.
Our Swing Door Slim Line literally "excelled" at the German Design Award 2020: the Frankfurt Design Council named it "Winner" in the category "Excellent Product Design - Buildings and Elements". It impressed the jury with its ability to add a second sash to large openings, which can be fixed or opened as required. The design of the filigree panels set in aluminum frames, which can be structured symmetrically or asymmetrically with attached glazing bars, was also deemed worthy of an award. We are pleased to continue the series of raumplus product awards with the German Design Award 2020 currently - and feel honored on the whole "Slim Line".
