Experts plan with the Profilsystem
We asked eight architects, interior designers, set designers, product designers and artists of all ages to show us how they would furnish rooms with the Profilsystem. Their furnishing suggestions are just as diverse as they are. They show that almost everything is possible with the Profilsystem. We brought to life and documented the eight ideas.
How would you use the Profilsystem to furnish a room?
You can quickly find out using a pen and paper. The plans with the Profilsystem are fun because they – as with puzzles – allow individual pieces to be put together. But if you don’t have the time or inclination, you can send us your floor plan and our furnishing experts will advise you and give you suggestions for an appropriate room design
