Willkommen auf Zeitraum

Thirty minutes from the centre of Munich, nestled in amongst the Bavarian hills is Zeitraum HQ. A German company, who for the last 19 years have been producing stunning furniture – natural, unpretentious yet stylish and contemporary. We at Relay are very proud to announce ourselves as Zeitraum agents in the UK and Ireland.

While in Germany we were lucky enough to taste some fantastic Bavarian hospitality and get a tour of their showrooms. All their products are beautifully crafted, using solid woods, finished with natural oils…no harsh chemicals here. Dedicated to sustainable manufacturing, ecology was a founding part to Zeitraum’s philosophy nearly 20 years ago and with such experience putting them ahead of the trend they have produced a truly great collection for 2009.

Always taking wood as their starting point – “it lives, smells good, feels nice, never looks the same and is therefore unique” - they mix in other materials like stainless steel and upholstery to create contemporary furniture ideal for domestic and commercial use.

With a large collection (all available in various finishes) we have had to be strict with ourselves and highlight just five products in this blog entry, but do visit their website at www.zeitraum-moebel.de to see more or email us at zeitraum@relaydesignagency.co.uk.

Code 1

Part of the larger Code family of shelving systems Code 1 is fitted with invisible magnets, recessed below the surface of the wood meaning the units can join together to create a stable wall.


Designed by Formstelle, Morph illustrates Zeitraum’s long experience using wood. Bending ply to create this organic, lightweight form it expresses ‘a combination of stability and dynamism’. Available with or without upholstery.


Using solid wood in combination with delicate stainless steel frames, both the Soda table (also available as a coffee and cafe table plus a side table) and the Form chair create a stylish aesthetic, which we at Relay think is unique to Zeitraum.


A classic design, which like all Zeitraum products is available in a number of woods including; European Oak, Wild Oak, American Walnut, European Walnut, Maple, Beech and American Black Cherry. It’s stackable too!


A simple name for a vast variable shelving system…WebWeb.35 and WebWeb.60 offer a myriad of possible shelving designs bespoke to the customer.

Also check out their new lighting family ‘Noon’ and their variable sitting system ‘Side Comfort’. Don’t worry if you miss something - Relay will be keeping you up-to-date with all the Zeitraum news.
