With nostalgia for the future
While technical progress thanks to digitalization is literally catapulting us into the future through the crisis, our own homes are being overwhelmed by a wave of nostalgia.
As our mothers said: Everything will come back... and so now you can see certain colors, shapes and textures everywhere that we know them from before. Orange, red, certain shades of green, wicker trays, brass - the beautiful tough brass - wood tones that we frowned upon a few years ago - or even discarded.
The wild, creative ceramics of the 70s alone are so inspiring, original and full of joy of life. Each individual piece can be perfectly combined with simple living elements and simply brings a bit of life into the room. The funny thing is that you experience this constant change in taste and now you're back to the shapes and colors from back then, and you even feel the need to surround yourself with these colors. So mom was right again: back in the 70s. And we love it!
The style elements of the 70s allow us to travel to earlier times, to a carefree time of the past, for many of us to our youth full of joy of life and a sense of optimism... and we can really use that right now.
And that's exactly where we come in with our Vintage Kontor: We have the originals, the highlights from back then, we have the real vintage design pieces, full of history, reinterpreted and combined for the new vintage style. On trend and yet different and individual.
Our pieces are not newly produced and from China, but from the past, upgraded and ready for a new, second life: “Preloved”.
That feels good! The environment is happy because every single piece that we continue to use does not have to be produced again, so it does not use any CO2 and does not consume any raw materials or resources.
This makes the world a little better, and that is something we need.
