OUR DESIGN

“GOOD DESIGN IS AS LITTLE DESIGN AS POSSIBLE.”

- DIETER RAMS, §10

We at KERBHOLZ design minimalist accessories made from sustainable materials. We create environmentally friendly everyday design products for modern men and women.Our design is inspired by the Bauhaus school principles: minimalist and simple looks that make the products wearable, modern and long-lasting at the same time. KERBHOLZ design is minimal form for maximum effect.Through simple design language, the products highlight colour, grain and unobstrusive value of the natural materials. These special materials make every KERBHOLZ product a unique piece, with no two models looking the same.

“GOOD DESIGN IS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.”

- DIETER RAMS, §09

For us, good design moreover means to regard the conservation of resources as an essential part of our design process. We use innovative materials from renewable resources and high quality Ronda Quartz watch mechanisms. Good design makes products long-lasting and reduces environmental pollution during production and disposal.For this approach, we have received multiple awards in the last few years, such as the Red Dot Design Award and the German Design Award. We are happy about this, but awards are not our only motivation to design minimalistic and modern products. We design products for people who wear them. For people who are natural, modern, individual, and special. And that is how their accessories should be.

“GOOD DESIGN MAKES A PRODUCT UNDERSTANDABLE.”

- DIETER RAMS, §04

Our design is “Made in Germany”, reduced and unpolished.Our design is even “Made in Cologne”, since all the important design steps take place in hour headquarter. We love design and good products. Therefore, you can be sure that every product is developed in a team effort. Every watch and every pair of glasses has been designed, discussed, dismissed and revised – until we were satisfied.

“GOOD DESIGN IS THOROUGH DOWN TO THE LAST DETAIL.”

- DIETER RAMS, §08

For our KERBHOLZ watches we exclusively use natural wood, which is sealed in a special way. The longer you wear your product, the more individual its natural patina gets.Our glasses and sunglasses are out of up to 15 layers of wood veneer. But we also use slate or acetate for a valuable and special look.All products are characterized by their light weight, the high wearing comfort, and their unconventionality.
