The licenses for the designs by famous designers of classic modernism, including Eileen Gray, Eckart Muthesius and Otto Blümel, formed the cornerstone for today’s collection. Soon, furniture by contemporary designers such as Sebastian Herkner, Neri & Hu, Konstantin Grcic and Jader Almeida followed. From the beginning, ClassiCon intentionally created a suspenseful relationship between classics and contemporary design.
Owner Oliver Holy has had a lasting impact on the family-run company with his passion for design, architecture and art for almost 20 years now. Since mid-2020, he and CEO Larissa Sarjeant have been jointly managing ClassiCon.
Our guideline for the future
How much spirit of departure does a piece of furniture contain? At ClassiCon, you will only find innovative furniture that expresses the courage to depart from familiar ground. Some of the pieces carry big names, and each can look back on a proud design history, sometimes over several decades or even an entire century. Others, however, are only at the beginning of writing their own big stories.
We consider it our task to accompany and enable a multitude of such stories – now and in the future. For this purpose, we are continuously expanding our partner network and engage in intensive dialogs with international designers, often young and unknown.
Local craft businesses that bring design ideas to life through their skills and expertise play an equally important role for us. Through our production methods, we aim to bring this craftsmanship and wealth of experience to light and secure it for the future.
