for more than 35 years, freund has developed and distributed modern material innovations for wall design. their plush portfolio includes real moss walls and pictures, panels of poplar bark, birch bark or bark of cork and larch, and also leather tiles for floors and walls, recycled waste wood, and foamed aluminum and more. these real materials are preserved using a special process that not only maintains their natural color but also does not need artificial light, care or fertilization. offering naturalness and individuality, the results create an oasis of well-being in office interiors.



perfect for planners, designers and architects, visitors can immersive themselves in interiors made from freund’s wall products at IMM cologne 2020. these range from huge preserved indoor vertical gardens to a massive curved house made of poplar bark. each one of their biophilic materials are easy to install. the results may still be called workspaces but the interiors appear as oases of nature and promote healthy well-being.
