„Design im Raum“ – interior design for exceptional requirements

Stefan Lessnich took a chance in 1996 when he started his career of being a self-employed interior designer. 20 years later his company “Design im Raum”(English meaning: “design in space”) is a real story of success for the CEO Stefan Lessnich.

The skilled interior designer from St. Sebastian near Koblenz in Germany has a lot of famous people among his clients. He is travelling long distances to visit them in in Munich, in Switzerland or even Grand Canaria.

His key to success: Functional and individual design perfectly adapted to the client’s house and professional counseling. “Our aim is to have perfectly satisfied clients who recommend us to their friends and acquaintances”, says Stefan Lessnich.

Recently Stefan Lessnich finished the showroom for his company “Design im Raum”. A model house, where he lives together with his family. Clients come from afar to visit the house, as it is equipped exclusively with selected products of brand manufacturers that Stefan Lessnich offers for sale.

Perfectly equipped indoors, Stefan Lessnich plans to expand with an outdoor showroom. Around the model house is a beautiful 4000m2 park with an ancient tree population – the perfect setting for presenting high-quality outdoor products. Stefan Lessnich designed two special objects for his new outdoor showroom: A beautiful glass table with impressive bases of stainless steel and an exclusive outdoor shower with a rear wall of cullet glass. Both objects are illuminated with more than 400 fiber optic cables.

A Belvedere cantilever umbrella from CARAVITA provides shade on the designer’s terrace. The high-quality patio umbrella impresses with its exclusive design and its unique and innovative opening mechanism. The sunshade opens and closes with a smooth running lever within seconds. The stainless steel foot enables comfortable 360° rotation of the patio umbrella. This way the shade can either be used to cover the whirlpool area or the lounge site with the glass table.

Big Ben 2 defies even storms!

Stuttgart. The Mercedes-Benz wind tunnel. Tense faces looking at a console with flickering screens.
„10km/h more“, Michael Caravita demands.
The noise of the wind increases, becomes almost deafening. When the wind sensor finally shows the magic number, the noise of the wind is drowned by cheering – 100 km/h!

In the high-tech wind tunnel of Mercedes-Benz, usually cars have to show what their worth under the most adverse conditions. Today, umbrellas made by CARAVITA have to prove themselves in the fight against the elements. The tests show which improvements have a positive impact on the product, and these are then made ready for the market.

Caravita Big Ben 2 a great success
“We knew that our umbrellas withstand high stress. Nonetheless we’re overwhelmed by the incredible values that we have witnessed today.“, says Michael Caravita. “We’re particularly pleased about the benchmarks of the new BIG BEN 2. We’ve worked hard on further improving the construction of the giant umbrella Big Ben over the last year. The new BIG BEN 2 is now equipped with a flatter roof and longer U-profiles as support for the struts. Therefore we’re particularly proud of having reached the magic threshold of 100km/h with the 3x3m-version this umbrella!”

Of course, with high wind speeds it still is the best solution to close an umbrella. Nonetheless, high benchmarks make sense and are increasingly often asked for. Because even though nobody would like to sit on a terrace with these high wind speeds – ultimately, it is also important to provide a feeling of security and safety.
