The well-known German furniture manufacturer ClassiCon specializes in high-quality and elegant design furniture. Among them are famous designer classics by Eileen Gray and also modern, timeless objects by young designers. ClassiCon demonstrates the ability to recognize tomorrow's design classics. Konstantin Grcic, who designed furniture for ClassiCon at the beginning of his career, is now one of the world's most famous designers. The lights and furniture by ClassiCon are timeless and elegant and manufactured according to high-quality principles.

"ClassiCon" means Classic Contemporary Design. The ClassiCon style is both classic and contemporary, thanks to superior production techniques, well-thought-out functionality and high-class materials, which ensure them a long life-span. In 100 years, the ClassiCon products will still be as beautiful and modern as today, a has been the case for decades.

The company was founded in 1990 by Stephen Fischer von Poturzyn, a former member of the United Workshops for Art and Craftmanship's (Vereinigte Werkstätten) boards of directors in Munich, where artists have carefully controlled their creations since 1898. The newly founded company took over the United Workshop's "classic" collection, the licences for the exclusive rights of production of very coveted designer classics like those bearing Eileen Gray's signature.

The most recent design objects are compiled in the category "Contempora". They are mostly produced by designers like Konstantin Grcic, the duo Barber & Osgerby and Sauerbruch Hutton, who designed major furniture lines and lights for ClassiCon.

Since 2001, ClassiCon has been directed by Oliver Holy, a great grandson of Hugo Boss. The Munich Lounge Sofa and other associated pieces of furniture were designed by the architect's bureau Sauerbruch Hutton for the Munich-based Brandhorst Museum under his direction and has now been included in his portfolio.

High-class light fixtures from the high-quality portfolio of the ClassiCon label are offered in the Nostraforma online-shop. The suspension Selene for example is a well-known designer classic with unparalleled character. It appeals with first choice materials and a clear formal language. The Bell Light light fixture by German designer Sebastian Herkner is also worth mentioning. It has been included in the ClassiCon assortment since 2013. Its traditional shapes and materials make it suitable for any high-class interior. Some of the ClassiCon lights were originally designed by Eileen Gray, such as the functional and minimalistic Tube Light and the Roattino floor lamps.
