Perfecting Your Production

Christoph Karl, co-founder and MD of Guideline MNF, is a furniture designer and entrepreneur with more than 20 years of industry experience.

Having grown up in a family of Bauhaus architects and being a German master craftsman has influenced the design, quality and manufacturing method he applies to products. Through 3D computer engineering, designs are rendered into a working program that is fed into CNC machinery. Components are shaped with maximum accuracy and minimal waste, conforming to the highest international standards while still using classic joinery methods such as ‘mortise’ and ‘tenon’ joints.

Guideline MNF is capable of handling any task in-house, with a committed design team and hand-picked group of skilled craftsmen. This results in classic contemporary furniture that combines tradition and clean-lined modernism.
