Dense, impervious, dark colour with bright reflexes on its edge. Shy bouquet with focusses of wood, nuances of wax and a subtle scent of tobacco. Pleasant copiousness, strong but still reluctant structures, accompanied with restrained, clear piquancy. Sustainable feeder. Storable.
Just, don’t get us wrong: We’re talking of course about astonishing wines which are sold at the vinotheque Il Tiglio in Tiengen, and we’re not talking about our shelving system FNP, which has been arranged tastefully by Seipp Wohnen. Honestly! ;-)
Nils Holland Moormann
Minimato showed itself matching all that cheese on the occasion of the anniversary of our Dutch retailer Just Haasnoot. – Or the cheese matched Minimato?
Somehow or other, we think it was a dignified presentation for a Dutch delicacy.
We elongated the Klopstock table top. A custom-made table emerged, which can be called “long vehicle” without any doubt, stretching over a length of 4,10m.
1 metal sheet for walls – upright or across
4 boxes made from 4 materials
4 back panels finished in 5 different colours
Adds up to:
A (huge) amount of possibilities to configure your very own Magnetique
Give me five!
The new colours are playing colourful at times in the Moormann collection. The already existing colours are joined by light yellow, ice blue, stone grey, umbra grey and moor green.
dot for Off Office
The Off Office catalogue scored at the red dot jury. He was decorated with the red dot design award 2013!Thank you very much!
Moormann flies the flag!
It’s no real news, that we’re selling FNP, K1 and Pressed Chair. But now we wrote it down on our flags… errr – drawed it!
Adela, Malene, Gitte, Freija & Christinna are studying furniture design at the TEKO Design and Business School in Denmark and had to write an essay about Nils Holger Moormann and his brand philosophy. As it turned out, they did additionally a short movie in a typical Moormann manner. And of course we forgive them the tiny mistake to relocate our company from Aschau to Bremen.
It is true that, caused by sheer repetition, almost everybody is by now bored with the concept of "sustainability", but the the subject nevertheless means a lot to us.
Actually, as far as sutainability is concerned, we believe to be well placed considering our on-site fabrication, the purchase of green electricity, or the use of unprocessed wood.
Within some months we will learn whether our belief is really correct. For Lennart Männle of the Advanced Technical College Rosenheim is about to complete his final paper for his bachelor's degree, which aims at determining the ecological footprint of our furniture.
We are curious about the results and we look forward to seeing in what respect we can still improve.
It is true it looks a little bit like a "goatacow", the Bavarian manifestation of a jackalope, but it fits together excellently:
Guesthouse berge and the furniture company Nils Holger Moormann play an efficient mixed doubles.
Not only that you can virtually live with our furniture on approval, but a visit to both establishments is now being rewarded, too:
As a guest of berge do not miss the chance of reducing your berge bill by visiting the second quality sales shop of our furniture company.
For, if you shop there while staying at berge, we will reduce your berge invoice by 10% of the purchase price of all the articles you bought there.
Reality and Fiction
Friedrich von Borries sets out to do a lot. RLF, “Richtiges Leben im Falschen” is the short, but full-bodied claim of his project, which wants to change the world from August on. RLF is published as book (Suhrkamp), is launched as an exhibition in Berlin (24th -27th August St. Agnes, Alexandrinenstraße 118-121, 10969) with some re-edited design objects (such as adidas, Konstantin Grcic, Enzo Mari or Kostas Murkudis). From October the 17th on, the overworked objects will be on sale at the RLF store (Potsdamer Straße 81E, 10785 Berlin). We are pleased that the FNP is going to be part of RLF and is going to beat capitalism – among some other combatants – at its own game.
'Show you are not afraid' - whoever likes to, can witness the beginning of a world revolution in Berlin from August on.
Our retailer Wohnidee in Luzern, Switzerland has published a magnificent magazine containing design delicacies and ideas for stylish excursions. One of the features of this booklet is a Moormann photography challenge. One had to send in a picture of a “Moormann” and with a bit of luck it was rewarded with a credit note of our guesthouse berge.
Congratulations to the winners – we are looking forward to your visit!
Antique pink, neon-red-orange, light pink, rose, or plaid red. – Today you’re going to be advised truly colourful by the sales department of Moormann.
It’s not only the furniture!
We can’t only do furniture – we can do something completely different as well.
Many utensils of our guest house berge are available for your home, too. Along with spices of the starred chef of berge Patrick Coudert, there is bedclothes of a little linen weaving mill, or wooden bowls, manufactured in Aschau.
Just have a look…
The shot coloured life of Moormann!
Moormann is now out of the top drawer! Well, almost. Actually we just sell some drawers for FNP. So you can buy them in nine colours, two different heights and you can attach them belatedly.
On the occasion of the summer exhibition of Neue Werkstätten, porcelain meets Moormann.
The summer exhibition shows unique pieces of the porcelain manufacture of Nymphenburg along with several pieces of furniture of Moormann.
Visible at Neue Werkstätten from June 26th to July 25th 2013, Promenadenplatz 8 in Munich.
"Moormann takes the chair"
… and receives the bill for it.
Even six awards gets our Moormann brochure vol. 10:
| ED Award 2013 - Finalist | The Type Directors Club 2013 | One Show 2013 Merit Award | New York Festivals - Finalist Certificate | ADC 2013 in Bronze | ADC Europe in Silber
Thank you very much!
A piece of Moormann history
The very reluctant zinc-yellow fair stand from the TDC ‘design annual’ back in 2006 has been sold by auction a couple of years ago. It was bought by smow.
On the occasion of the spring round tour of the galleries at the area of the spinning mill in Leipzig at the beginning of May 2013, smow deployed pure man-power and some cordless screwdrivers to restage yellow Moormann history.
She’s only been visible at the guesthouse berge, for a long time. Now she dares to step out into the wide world of lamps and is available as a part of the collection of Moormann: Miss Swiss
Nils Holger in Milano
2013: There is the fair in Milan and Moormann doesn't go there. ...
A table is a table, is a table!
For Klopstock can do what hardly any other table can. A sophisticated click and snap system enables Klopstock's legs to be positioned in 12 different symmetrical (and some more non-symmetrical) arrangements, suitable for any desired position of chairs and table heights. Or just for an arrangement you like best. In case your taste changes, you grow, you move, or you want to use Klopstock in a different way, you simply convert Klopstock once again.
Most probably only Klopstock offers so much individuality and such a great number of uses. Therefore the slogan „a table is a table, is a table“ had better go „one table is many tables“.
One for all!
The new lamp La Funsel loves them all: It’s not only possible to attach it to the two beds Siebenschläfer an Tagedieb, as shown in the pictures, but it also fits with a proper clip to all tables up to a tabletop thickness of 65 mm. One for all – except for your partner in the bed: because of the focused light of the reading lamp he won’t notice anything and can easily fall asleep while you’re curiously finish reading the book “The Three Musketeers”.
You really would like to lie down immediately, abandon yourself to idleness and let it steal your day!
But you shouldn’t oversleep the bed has a lot more to offer as you would expect on first glance.
At first you can assemble it - in old Moormann-style - without any tools and it is just held together with four clamps on each corner – the main design element of the bed. Second the high head board can be attached straight up, or angular, even afterwards.
Additionally and not visible on the picture, but really useful: the mattress support can be adjusted in four different heights. This means, almost every combination of duckboard and mattress matches the bed.
Moormann's Fair Play
Course of the game:
The goal of the game is, that Moormann figures out, whether he is going to take part in the furniture fair in Milan, or not.
At the very start of the game, the player from Aschau rolls the dice and advances after he’s finished with his work further in the direction of Milan. Due to new furniture developments, which have to be finished, the game gets fascinating. The course of the game gets complicated by (not) told information of the opposing player.
The fair rolls the dice and allocates the player from Aschau the same fair stand as last year, on the very edge of the playing field. – Moormann doesn’t play along.
2013: There is the fair in Milan and Moormann doesn't go there.
The last moment
To meet the demands, that are leaning at our shelf FNP, and of course to guarantee they will have an effect on the whole width of the self, we racked our brains again. Accurate quality control is the kingpin of the whole shelf. This might sound very annoying, but it ensures everybody is happy. Right before a shelf board is sent on its journey, we’d rather have a second visual inspection of it and examine it on scarcities. Afterwards it’s of course fondled, bidden farewell, and neatly packed up. Au revoir, perfect shelf board!
Cream off in the living room league
It is well known, that Aschau is right behind L.A. in coolness, and that everybody has what it takes to become an all-star, this proves our really easy shelf FNP. It doesn’t take gilded editions of Brecht or out of stock records. Whoever wants to arise from all the difficult reading and the bunch of electronic music may put it the sporty way round and utilize our shelf for doing some brain calisthenics. Well, get rid of the basket …
Afterwards it might get really easy to choose the next book.
Well meant „logistic suggestions“ from Moormann, and then this!
The manufacturer “mawa design” re-names the logistic and production facilities after our big boss
In the context of the MCBW 2013 (Munich Creative Business Week) Pressed Chair is exhibited in all over new colours. The special exhibition “mcbw momente” takes place Kongresshalle in Munich, from February 21st to 24th .
( Theresienhöhe 15, 80339 München )
Our guesthouse berge got green!
No, we didn´t painted it new. Rather berge is now a new member of the union 'Bio-Hotels'!
The stuctural conditions were given from the beginning: geothermal energy, green electricity, natural materials an so on.
Now we turned the other things, like food, beverages or cosmetic products, also into bio. It´s bioberge!
At Moormann, and all around
It is not all about fiddling about new furniture stuff in Hohenaschau. The departments get redesigned, the showrooms are made up, the facade gets restored and passed away pieces of furniture are placed in the new “Moormann archive” as well.
If someone may inform oneself about the latest changes at the company one can watch the movies, or can come along in Hohenaschau at our showrooms in person.
What would you like to have?
a FNP, FNP X, FNP Postmeister, or an Egal after all?
Maybe some FNP shelf board in custom width along with it?
Custom height? We’re up for it!
Maybe a different material instead? No problem. …
The Moormann configurator for FNP and Egal, has not only been reworked visually, but it has been equipped with some further tools as well. You’ll find the most important innovations in the movie.
The planning aid is now running on tablet computers without any problems.
"Hey weird metal sheet, how are you?"
Just in time for the imm cologne: the new shelf "Watn Blech ...
The Bremen Town Furniturists
Beside Th Bremen Town Musicians and The Roland, there is a third attraction to gaze at in the future; The first Moormann flagship store. The new business rooms are open since December the 7th. The team of POPO Sitzmöbel und Stehschränke is looking forward for your visit, and so do we!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Maybe we cannot tell it often enough.
We’ve again been decorated with several awards for the brochures, catalogues and the berge-newspaper:
4x the ED Award 2012, 4x the MfG-Award 2012, 1x the D&AD Award 2012 and finally another one of the ADC 2012.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
As time goes by...
Zoll D musst be named as a cross-epochal product. Since nearly 20 years it is part of our portfolio. In the meantime it has survived several trends and even the tube tv. And the story seams to continue ...
and the winner is ...
2.8 kg light, but heavier by one design award. The Pressed Chair. On the occasion of the imm cologne, our chair was decorated with the Interior Innovation Award 2013, which is donated by the Rat für Formgebung.
smow versus Moormann
Our retailer smow maybe thought, that our quadratically logo is sort of impractical. And if it doesn’t fit, use a bigger hammer. So our logo was “beheaded” in some publications. But then Moormann struck back!
There is more than one way to do it!
Special FNP in special height and special width.
Special Egal, shaped semi-circular.
Special Pressed Chair, special colored.
For real? Yes, of course! We’re pleased to realize your special wishes!
Captain Moormann is on target for Bremen! Together with “Popo Sitzmöbel und Stehschränke” the first Moormann flagship store is opening up its doors soon.Auf den Häfen | 28203 Bremen | Germany
For apples and androids there is now the Moormann App! It is for free and includes a lot of information for your smartphone and your tablet computer.
Thats what we call CI
Our ex-trainee Benedikt buys his outfits as from now always coordinated to new colours of the “Pressed Chair”.
This time: shoes in “hot mustard”.
Let´s see when he will be dressed in “morning-due-blue”, in “lake-chiemsee-silt” or in “deep-water”.
And will he ever be man enough to wear drama-queen-green?
The new colour concept is developed by Susanne Schwenger, Creative Director Marc O’Polo Women.

All good things come in threes
For the guesthouse-berge-newspaper, which we provide our guests and all interested people, we were prized three times!We were honoured at the ADC Award 2012, were nominated for the MfG Award and were voted under the finalists at the ED Award!
Many thanks for that!
The well fitting table
The Table for the FNP shelf is perfect in one thing: It really fits perfectly the FNP shelf. To fit this perfect, we gave the table the best fitting materials and fitted of course the grooves to the table so it fits to the rails of the shelf.
They are both uptight.
But just for structural stability: Paul & Paula
There is more than one way to do it!
Special FNP in special height and special width.
Special Egal, shaped semi-circular.
Special Pressed Chair, special colored.
For real? Yes, of course! We’re pleased to realize your special wishes
How it all began
A bizarre thought… first woozily sketches… wonky paper models…
The way to the final repetition part sometimes leads the long way round. But this could be as interesting as the finished piece of furniture.
Moormann rummages the very back corners and the depths of the archive ...
Nothing is too heavy for the chair!
The Pressed Chair even withstands a traditional dressed bulky Bavarian! So the Oktoberfest can easily start out.
A great thank-you goes out to our friend Christoph Böninger, boss of the collection Auerberg, and the designer Martin and Thomas Poschauko for this very special drawing.
What you want is what you get. It’s quite easy with Moorless.
Several different colored boxes made from steel can be attached using magnetic foil, so you can arrange them the most beautiful and practical way. In the end there will be a side table with loads of storage space for any sort of books and magazines.
And you’ll get more on top of it. A round shaped table top adds a lot more space if required.
News from berge!
... from now on by email!
If there are news at berge or around it, you’ll be informed directly. By the berge newsletter via e mail.
Moormann congratulates intraform on a magenta colored anniversary!
To their fiftieth (5ZIG) we really worked flat out. The Zipfred was converted to one of a kind …
Our workshop for prototypes – now magenta colored – will remind us of the action for a long time.
Fellerer – 8:30 – rain – 325 kg on the seat – perfect stability of the chair – Pressed Chair.Stopover in lower Aschau – it’s raining – 45 kg on the back rest (200.000 times) – still in shape – Pressed Chair.Higher Aschau – blazing sun – the rubber base fits perfectly – Pressed Chair.
Pressed Chair – your chair is protected every time, all-weather proof.
One FNP talking to another:
"Think outside the box!"
I want, I want, I want ... to be in the office!
We were unable to keep our furniture back from going to work.
Actually – there was nothing to be said against it.
You will find the result of that trip on these 92 pages.
Just before Milan...
31st January 2012 at 16.53:
"We’ll get our usual 35 square metres anyway."
"And what if we don’t?"
"First of all we need a concept. Brainstorming!"
"What new furniture are we going to show?"
"New? What do you mean new?"
"The classics have to make an appearance! .... maybe just the old pieces?"
1st March 2012 at 9.32:
"The stand allocation has arrived! ... 70 square metres!"
"So what’ll we do now?"
"Everybody has to have at least one idea by tomorrow!"
"When will the new pieces be ready?"
A vision in white
The FNP bookshelf dresses up to the nines – throughout in white. From now on FNP is available in bicolor white with white edges!
The Hell of Aschau: The Movie
Finally it has arrived! The film of the hell of Aschau!
All hell broke loose on the 8th of October at Moormann!
3 motorized Bookinists, 200 invited guests an one challenger. 20 courageous racing teams fearlessly lined up to fight for victory! There have been dangerous stunts, uncounted crashes with bales of straw and all that took place at a temperature of only 5°C and rain and snow! Everybody tried to win! Absolutely everybody! All hell broke loose…
The Hell of Aschau
The furniture catalogue Vol. 3 has now gained the 8th award! At least we’re very happy and proud about the “Gute Gestaltung 2012” prize of the DDC (German Designer Club).Thanks a lot!
Castle Herrenchiemsee? Castle Neuschwanstein? No!
This is a Renault Twingo. And don’t tell you’ve known this before!
Our big boss has been invited, along with three other well known persons to re-design the interior of a brand new Renault Twingo individually, and show it at an exhibition in Bilbao. According to the famous wagon-lit, the French sleeping cars, he transformed the tiny car to a wagon-lire, the reading car. You can turn the back-rest of the bench from driving position to reading position. Along with this feature you’ll find everything you’d need for a nice reading journey: Book shelf, news rack, tiny davenport, literature encyclopedia, and most important, a little chimney! May the next traffic jam last long!
Vol. 3 gets dotted
The actual furniture catalogue of Moormann is now wearing a petticoat! Errrr…. Hang on. No! The book has recently been awarded for „editorial“ with the red dot communication award 2011!
Thank you very much!
You are spoilt for choice
A new material is available for FNP: the well-tried MDF can now be delivered with an edge. One side of the shelf board is white, the other one is anthracite edged.
Thus, you do not only have the choice between the two colours, you can also combine them in one rack. The only thing that remains to be done for you is to come to a decision...
What a service! Actually we just wanted to call your attention to our Newsletter, informing you about the latest news of Moormann. From now on you can subscribe to it on the left side on our website. Now we really take the biscuit!
Two „new classics“
Even two items of our collection have been decorated as “new classics”. The cupboard system K1 and the shelf Else.
Europes biggest housing magazine “Schöner Wohnen” honours authoritative pieces of furniture and housing accessoirs of the 21. Century with this award.
Thank you very much!
citrus yellow, honey yellow, sunny yellow, saffron yellow, sulfur yellow, bright yellow…But most of all we are very happy about “D&AD Yellow”. Strictly speaking about the very rare design award “Yellow Pencil”, which has been bestowed to our Moormann brochure 2010!
Moormann has shrinked.
No, not this Moormann. He is still quite tall -192 cm to be precise.
Just the Moormann catalogue did shrink. This sort of Moormann is now available in a small size version.
Besides some pictures it additionally contains a few numbers, letters and drawings…
Oh, well, yeah…
Niels? No. Nisl! No, come on. Isn’t he called Nils? Are you really sure? Well, perhaps Niles is correct. And what about the Holier? Hogler, or just Holger? Absolutely no idea. I’m perplexed. What was the name of the company again? Niles Hogler Motorman, right? Well this appears on the new flags on the outside of the headquarter, or something like that. I just don’t know!
5 for 2
2 brochures – well, precisely 1 catalogue and 1 brochure – 2 different design awards – ADC and European Design Awards – 3 decorations – 1 for the MoBro 2010 and even 2 for the catalogue Vol. 3 – but in 2 different colors … well, at least 3 awards then – and as if 3 awards are not sufficient, the brochure additionally gets 1 honour and 1 nomination – 3 at the end – all in all adding up to 5.
To start afresh:
1x ADC in silver and
1x ED Award in gold for the catalogue Vol. 3
1x ADC honour and
1x D&AD-Pencil nomination and
1x ED Award in gold for the MoBro 2010
Thank you very much for the 4 awards and 1 honour!
There are constantly these new pieces of furniture! And now a very small one has wangled his way through all hindrances, and he even made it this far, he is now part of the collection. Though he is just made from a few wooden sticks and a piece of aluminium! The tiny thing has furthermore quite a weird name: Minimato! But please form your opinion about the new dwarf from Moormann.
New, newer, newest!
Newly, just before Milan the latest news.
...puh ha, and now just hang out!
We see twice
Now it’s official: Not only the table Egon, but also our new catalogue Vol. 3 have been decorated with the iF design awards in gold! We are really happy and pleased about the two decorations.
Maybe this is a miracle, or pure logistic genius that this box arrived at the headquarter marked with this sticker.
Somehow we’ve always been aware that our big boss is quite into motoring business...
Come on in!
After the logistics moved completely, the empty spaces at the headquarter are filling up again. The “second quality choice” is already almost about to be entirely nearly finished! Every single Friday the doors open for you. Since you want to visit us the other days of the week, please feel free to arrange an appointment.
Two are better than more
The Type Directors Club ennobled two of our printmedia. Both, the Moormann-Broshure 2010 and the Catalogue Vol. 3, won the award. We are happy twice and say many many thanks thanks..
The new Moormann Catalogue already arrived and is now ready to order. It contains absolutely everything, which you´ve ever wanted to know about Moormann. And since you´re not flicking the pages stunned, we took care that it´s a real looker in your bookshelf.
Our new Moormann brochure "Moormann in simple terms" gets an iF communication award 2010 and the Good Design Award 2010.
We are very glad about it. Thank you so much for the honour!
now that you've been decorated with the iF product design award and the Good Design Award 2010, we want to congratulate you warmly. All of us really do celebrate with you and it's a pleasure to represent you on our “wall of fame”.
Yours, the Moormen
Dear Joseph Binder!
I am very proud in spite, or just because of the “einfache Verhältnisse” being decorated with your golden award!
Lovingly cut out with the nail scissor, and carefully written on the old typewriter, I try to show insights and an overall view. I´d never thought of facing such golden times. Thank you very much.
The Moormann brochure 2010
The Moormann website can now also be enjoyed as iPhone optimized version...
Moormann in simple terms
Every two years Mr. Moormann publishes a brochure presenting very little of his furniture. Good move. His consistent inspiration with new ideas is partly fuelled by our even crazier graphic designers. The sometimes sober text can also be ascribed to them.
We wish you good insights.
The relocation of our logistics comes to an dignified end.
Furniture, packaging, pallets and high racks finally moved out of the narrowness of the Festhalle. 3.5 km from here they celebrate their grand move-in in Rosenheimerstrasse 33-35!
Kampenwand dressed up!
With a classy brunette oak or reddish beech table top, with refined trestles in stainless steel, tensed up as usual, this time with finest black Vectran rope.
Mamma mia Maria!
Maria, the good soul oft the company, shows very little respect for design-icons. Every Tuesday the hand-signed Sottsass sculpture in the corridor has to serve a very practical purpose and is visibly squirming under this affront.
It was about time!
For the first time we ventured to design a stand at a fair for a company other than our own. Nomos Glashütte, the watch-manufacturer, plucked up the courage to entrust us with the task and - as we believe - had no reason to regret having done so. The strong contrast between the rough material used for the stand and the delicate watches showed the art of watch-making off to its best advantage.
Many thanks for the marvellous cooperation!
The legendary Rover P6 hit the headlines before at times of Ron Arad’s Rover Chair. Now the P6 JP pays homage to that readymade design classic...
