Like a phoenix from the ashes: «team by wellis» is back

09. November 2016

Patrick Brunner, maker of fine furniture from Willisau brings the strong Swiss furniture brand «team by wellis» back to life - and takes everybody by surprise with a new collection. His newly established company Team by Wellis AG is taking over all intangible property rights from the inheritance of the dissolved Wellis Möbelfabrik AG

Willisau remains a mecca for design furniture: Patrick Brunner, owner and CEO of Tisch & Stuhl Willisau AG brings «team by wellis» back home to the place where the label started in 1927. «Take actions instead of moan» is his credo. And the new collection is also currently being planned. Skilful redesign of classics combined with new designs and product lines are leading the extravagant brand into a promising future. And, for a start, to the international interiors show “imm cologne” from January 16th to 22nd, 2017. Thanks to Patrick Brunner’s group of companies, «team by wellis» is accepting its great inheritance in Cologne for the first time.

Design and craftsmanship from Switzerland is synonymous for excellent quality and remains sought after – also on the European market. Patrick Brunner is convinced of that. With «Willisau Switzerland» he is celebrating the company‘s 88th anniversary this year. Now, he is also using the passion, know-how and potential of his furniture manufacture for «team by wellis». Synergies make both companies stronger. Patrick Brunner explains: «We are increasingly focussing on holistic interior concepts and involve both given space and architecture. Rather design people’s homes comfortably instead of just furnish them ».
