The worldwide network of independent planning, sales and services partners is tightly knit. They are

world through short channels and with professionalism. The projects shown inside this book would not
have come about without them. This is why we regard this monograph first and foremost as an insight into
the creative achievements and the sector and country-specific approaches to design of our partner
network. This book would like to invite you to come and discover our partners’ favorite places, favorite
music, and follow up their insider tips.
For fifty years now, Burkhardt Leitner has consistently continued the tradition of Bauhaus and Ulm
School - not by preserving it epigonally but by developing it offensively. His modular architectural
systems, honored with numerous design prizes, were and still are bound to a morally, socially, and
economically legitimate function aesthetics. And these have been around for a long time, (ever) present
in exhibitions, trade fairs, offices and public spaces. The book gives insights into the way in which
the designer thinks and feels in a series of biographical sketches and essays by friends and business
associates from around the world. The book brings Burkhardt Leitner to life as a person, tireless man of
action, designer, entrepreneur, committed patron of design and art. But also for the very first time in
public – as an artist.
