Safe furniture, made in Germany.
In the tradition of Carl Kästner, 1846
Almost 200 years ago, Carl Kästner of Leipzig reinvented the safe as an attractive piece of furniture. A game of sophisticated concealment, then as it is now: no one would suspect hard steel beneath such an appealing shell. The Swiss safety lock and the hinges integrated invisibly into the elegant stainless steel feet tenaciously resist unauthorized advances.
Carl Kästner affords reassuring security to the things one wants to know protected, but also readily accessible. From unforgettable love letters to jewels passed down the family to valuable business documents. And if one needs to discreetly conceal items of value at home or at the office, there is an option to integrate a VdS-certified safe. High time that Carl Kästner ’s innovative idea experienced a revival.
Then as now, it is a discreetly strong signal made in Germany. The new charm of safe furniture … living with security can be so attractive!
SALONE DEL MOBILE 2018
Introducing Carl Kästner Safe-Furniture
A new genre of furniture for luxury interiors
In 19th century Germany, the innovator and engineer Carl Kästner created the first burglar-proof, high security safe disguised as a piece of luxury furniture. After establishing his company in 1846, Carl Kästner would go on to employ the finest European engineers and craftspeople of his generation, creating sumptuous furniture incorporating hidden safes designed to protect the private treasures of wealthy business tycoons and then obility, and constructing vast underground bank vaults for the national banks of Germany and Russia.
At Salone del Mobile 2018, Carl Kästner is thrilled to announce its relaunch with the introduction of the first ever collection of Carl Kästner safe-furniture – an entirely new genre of furniture designed to safely conceal and house precious possessions.
