Since more than 20 years Thomas Merkel is committed to this brand with his clear design. His wide experience is based on the collaboration with well-known designers and the realization of ideas into marketable products. His furniture for sdr+ and S+ are systems which can be individualized for the reason to integrate into the environment. They don’t want to dominate but to fit.

His work is quiet, balanced and appears always as a matter of course without asking questions. All his drafts show his vision of design: hence the table program M04 is a very ambitious creative and technical work of high aesthetically appeal.

For him, design is more than only an idea. The detail and the realization are the determining differences in the quality of the completed product and the standards he sets himself every day. His work is thought-out, the details are worked out, changed, rejected and then achieved in a new way. Not different at any cost but always better in details.

Until today his work is accompanied by numerous awards: Nomination for the Designpreis der BRD, Design Deutschland selected, Red dot award product design, if product design award, Designpreis für Dreidimensionalität etc.


The furniture for S+ is exclusively produced in Germany. The collaboration with the companies we work today goes back to the founding of sdr+ in 1995. Companies that have achieved together with us our high standards: for quality, reliability and service. This is very important for us to gain your trust and to earn it. The following partners are system suppliers for S+:

Our system suppliers are responsible for the complete product, starting from material purchasing to manufacturing, assembly and consignment, to the preparation for transport. A shipper brings the goods to our trade partners at home and abroad.

Of course there are many companies in the background who provide the fittings, turned and pressed parts, wooden trays or other accessories. Not to forget the companies that manufacture our booths or print our brochures. All these companies make it possible that we are S+.



S+ arised in 2013 from sdr+ and all shareholders of sdr+ continued their commitment for S+. But even new shareholders came along believing in the power of the idea of system furniture.
