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.

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.

7 January 2020. Playtime: Richard Lampert stages its collection in the spirit of Jacques Tati at IMM Cologne 2020 (Hall 3.2, booth E011).

In recent years, Richard Lampert's stands at the IMM Cologne have always offered something special in the way of backdrops – and now it's official: Richard Lampert cordially invites you to the Cologne Furniture Fair 2020 for »Playtime«. In 1967, Jacques Tati, the »oddball« of French cinema, brought his surreal masterpiece to the screen. The focus is on the modern world, caricatured in a witty and sensitive way: some of the most arresting images in the film are office cubicles, portrayed as the padded cells of everyday working life, along with the documenting of the pitfalls of modern city life, using the quotidian slog of Paris as an example.

In Cologne, from January 13 to 19, 2020, Richard Lampert will be referencing these scenarios and staging its collection – enriched by new and revised designs – under the title »Playtime«. Six cubes provide the framework for this representation of modern life and work: living, eating, sleeping, working in the home office and meeting scenarios are all on display. In the centre, you’ll find the bar, with the best cup of cappuccino – guaranteed – at the fair.

Expedition with Pode at the IMM Cologne 2020.

apart and nonchalant, the Lifestyle brand Pode presents exceptional new products with an international flair from 13 to 19 January 2020 at the IMM in Cologne. Emerged from the Leolux group, the young company, under the creative direction of Studio Roderick Vos, promises an unconventional journey that leads from the Netherlands to Spain.

The open yet comfortable design of the armchair Bibo (design: Roderick Vos, 2020), with its striking four-legged frame and minimalist spherical shape, makes you want to take a seat. Spanish dinámica brings the purist design of armchairs Cabut (Design: Yonoh, 2020) to the new Pode collection: Ergonomic comfort culminates in the special, strikingly large headrest, whose inspiration Yonoh found in the Spanish mask culture of Valencia. With Colla, the Dutch designer Susanne de Graef creates pure Pode design in Dutch tradition: »collar sofa« Colla with its sweeping lines offers an oasis of cosiness.

Pode cordially invites on Monday 13. January 2020 between 16:00 and 18:00 pm to a press event »Get together: Pode Novelties 2020«. Meet the designers: Studio Roderick Vos and Susanne de Graef are on site and give an insight into their creative process in a relaxed atmosphere.
