Stefan Umdasch Design redesigned the forest office for Matthias Hatschek’s forestry company. The office, situated in buildings formerly belonging to Karlsbach castle, needed to be modern and comfortable, while maintaining a link to the forest and nature.

To achieve this, a functional leather wall was employed as the main design element, providing storage space on one hand and concealing the existing water and heating installations on the other. In addition to the suede used on the wall, the predominant material in the office is the oiled pear wood used for the tables.
