Good design speaks its own language: a language shaped by distinctive brands and by products with unique aesthetics, functionality and sustainability. What’s needed, from the very first idea to establishing a brand or product in the marketplace, is a great deal of dedication, courage and conviction – and the right partner. We at welcome design are fluent in this special language and we are able to communicate it with a great deal of passion, thanks to longstanding experience in strategic PR, in developing and implementing tailored communication concepts and in providing consultancy services to establish both brands and new products in the areas of design and architecture.

Strategic Public Relations.

Welcome design specialises in strategic PR in the areas of design and architecture. We offer the complete service package, comprising development and implementation of PR and marketing strategies, targeting of individual and influential journalists and opinion shapers, management and implementation of press events, looking after media representatives at trade fairs and other events, media monitoring, inclusion of modern communication channels and maintenance of online press sections.

Individual Communication Concepts.

At the core of every successful – and hence goal-directed – corporate communication is a tailored PR and communication concept where every detail has been considered carefully. In close cooperation with our clients, we develop individual and convincing communication concepts, starting with the first briefing, to researching and analysing the specific market, to defining target groups and communication goals and to planning and implementing measures.

Copy Production.

With our longstanding experience and specialist knowledge, we support our clients in concept development, in the production of catalogues or publications on design or architecture-related themes and in creating copy for marketing and press communication.



29 March 2023. Kunstmuseen Krefeld awarded ‘Museum of the year 2022’.

The Kunstmuseen Krefeld move in the field of tension between art and design, avant-garde and tradition, architecture and interior – expressed through incomparable exhibitions and presented at three venues: the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum in the city centre and the brick mansions designed by Mies van der Rohe, Haus Lange and Haus Esters in the residential area of Bockum. For more than 120 years, the art museums in the former textile city of Krefeld have acted as pioneers and written museum history with their important exhibitions.
A commitment that is now receiving a very special award: The Kunstmuseen Krefeld have been named ‘Museum of the Year 2022’ by the German section of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA).

21 March 2023. Design Studio Niruk x CORCRETE.

With curiosity and intuition, with a fine sense for detail and a great deal of patience, Nina Ruthe and David Antonin devote themselves to the subject of materiality and the development of innovative materials. This also applies to CORCRETE – a material that originated from the intention to make concrete lighter and to create a natural-looking material for interior design and architecture. Made of warm natural cork and cool concrete, this unique composite material presented the design duo with a number of challenges: finding the right production partner was one of them. With HARTIS, a passionate Belgian family business, they have found such a partner, and have implemented their first collaborative projects, such as the new headquarters of the sneakers label VEJA in New York.
The dedicated CORCRETE website provides detailed information for architects, interior designers and other interested parties and also includes the option to order samples:

08 February 2023. Bee – the new chair by Actiu.

New in – chair Bee by Actiu. An innovative seating furniture for the contract sector, ideal for the hospitality and corporate segments. Characterized by a delicate silhouette, Bee is nevertheless resistant and ensures durability. The designer of the new product is Actiu founder Vicent Berbegal himself.

The creative process focused on the desire to simplify making decisions when selecting a product – especially for the office and hospitality sectors. With ReForm Maze, Ege Carpets offers a wide range of design options on a carefully chosen design and a predefined color selection that perfectly matches the current interior trends. Unlike the other collections in Ege Carpets' ReForm concept, Maze sets itself apart with its cut pile and deliberately takes a step back in design.

10 December 2022. GRAFF introduces numerous kitchen collections, starting with Harley Kitchen.

Art of Bath: Since its foundation in the 1970s by the European Ziggy Kulig, who is still the president of the exclusive manufacturer for bathrooms and private spas, GRAFF has been about a great enthusiasm for high-quality materials, functional design and traditional craftsmanship – combined with the clear vision of rethinking the bathroom with courage and seriousness for sustainable design, creativity and precision. 50 years later, GRAFF has made a name for itself internationally as an avant-garde manufacturer of exciting and forward-looking fittings and bathroom interiors.

18 November 2022. At the heart of it: The new VARIO Office Kitchen.

A place of exchange and security, the heart of every good house party – VARIO finds: What the kitchen can do in private, it should also bring into the working world. This is precisely the idea behind the new VARIO Office Kitchen. To make this work, VARIO takes the classic office kitchen out of its niche and redesigns it as the centrepiece of a new room concept, so that it becomes a focal point for communication, standing freely in the room. The kitchen unit can be supplemented with a counter and the free rear wall can be used for a wide variety of functions. In this way, the VARIO Office Kitchen quickly becomes a think tank and provides impulses for an active working day.

31 October 2022. New Visions of Work: Ege Carpets x Orgatec 2022.

As the leading international trade fair for modern working environments, Orgatec proved its unbroken appeal last week – an adequate stage for the Danish premium manufacturer Ege Carpets and the wonderful staging of its brand and innovations in the Cologne exhibition halls. Inspired by the claim "let's weave a greener future", Ege Carpets placed a strong focus on its holistic sustainability strategy. In addition, the premium manufacturer staged the ReForm Shadowplay collection (design: Carol Appleton) at its trade fair stand designed by the Düsseldorf office Raumkontor, alongside the 56 new colours for its Eco collections – created and curated by textile designer and colour alchemist Margrethe Odgaard. Closely linked to the topic of well-being, acoustics also took a prominent place as one of Ege Carpets' heart projects – both Acoustic Rooms Modular and the add-on line Flow could be experienced at the stand.

21 September 2022. New products – the special world of Pode continues to grow.

The Pode collection is growing: no fewer than five new products from the Dutch lifestyle brand are making their debut. Rounded corners and a low, deep seat define relaxation and comfort at Nivti: the new programme by Meike Harde includes distinctive sofas and add-on elements and offers individual design freedom. A wonderful addition: Jolt table series (design: Yonoh Studio) stands for stability and lightness at the same time. Also from the pen of the Spanish design duo Yonoh is the Tresto lounge chair: the large seat shell tempts you to curl up in it, while the base, available in any colour, sets accents. Pode Art Director Claire Vos is responsible for the new home accessories: the Chillow cushion is inspired by 'puffy' quilted products from fashion, the island-shaped Shallow rug follows the trend of round, organic shapes and has a depth effect.

08 August 2022. Luxury Green – GRAFF presents Bali collection in new designs and with innovative water-saving technology.

With the Bali collection, presented for the first time in 2020, GRAFF pays homage to the unique Balinese irrigation system Subak for rice fields, which follows the Tri Hita Karana principle and thus the traditional philosophy for life on the island of Bali. The focus is on human harmony in harmony with nature. According to the Subak system, the landowners irrigate countless rice fields. Some of the rice terraces thus created are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites due to their uniqueness and the size of the architectural work.
Green Luxury: The Bali collection by GRAFF is a tribute to Bali's connection with the land, water and nature. In addition, Bali is a series of fittings that describes the balance between sustainability and luxury that is so important for GRAFF like hardly any other collection. The Bali collection is now available in new designs and with state-of-the-art water-saving technology.

Many years of know-how in the technology and metal sector, a spirit of discovery, a love of experimentation and a keen sense of original design were the ingredients with which Carlo Panzeri began the success story of his eponymous company - with the dream of creating light and the conviction that he would become a pioneer in the lighting sector. That was 75 years ago. Today, Panzeri, now in its third generation of family management, continues to write its thoroughly Italian history. Congratulations on a special milestone!

01 July 2022. 56 Colours by Margrethe Odgaard – a new world of colours for Ege Carpets.

Textile designer and colour alchemist Margrethe Odgaard has created 56 new colours for Ege Carpets. An extraordinary and effective colour palette with the talent to give people a feeling of security and well-being. A colourful search for poetry and humanity.
Odgaard takes a holistic sensory approach to her work with colour. She is convinced: interiors created with the intention of strengthening body and soul can have a remarkably positive effect. She wants her colours to stimulate energies and create atmosphere, to make a space a physical experience through its finely considered colour scheme. A holistic approach that premium manufacturer Ege Carpets also uses as the basis for its diverse collections - and which the two are now pursuing together in their current collaboration.
