Our friend and photographer Noel Richter came by for a visit and took some photos of our new workshop! Last year we spent about 3 months renovating this beautiful and historical building, which is located at the industrial harbor area of Lübeck. The former apprenticeship workshop of the metal construction company LMG where our grandfathers once trained for the profession of metalworker has now become our design studio with office, workshop, storage, photo studio and kitchen.
This fantastic project is from Calgary, Canada. The Ice Cream Shop "Village Ice Cream" is styled with our Eikon Basic Oak in mint! We love it!

Last week we were more than happy to receive the award for company foundation by the newspaper Lübecker Nachrichten and donated by jeweler company Mahlberg. As a Lübeck based company that has already overcome the first challenges and has itself established in the market, we were awarded for our "great idea and our outstanding achievements". With our business concept to design and develop ecological and sustainable products which are produced by local manufacturers we were able to convince the judges for our company.
It has been a wonderful evening and we would like to thank the Lübecker Nachrichten team as well as donator Gregor Wintersteller for the award and for their support of young start-up companies!
It was a very busy and exciting week at Maison & Objet! Thank you Paris for a great show!
We are very pleased to introduce our new Eikon Ray lighting!
This lamp compliments the product family with a sober and more elegant appearance. Treated with an additional metal coating, the lampshade has a beautiful golden surface and conveys discreet luxury in composition with the natural material wood.
The lighting‘s name hints at the characteristic golden and warm rays produced by the reflecting light at the inside of the lampshade.
The feel of the lighting may recall the industrial age but it also has a clean line that gives it a pure and contemporary look.
We are very happy to announce that Schneid will take part at the international design fair Maison & Objet Paris from January 23-27!
Our stand will be in hall 8 Now! Design à vivre!, a space dedicated for the new generation of design - where the latest trends and ideas will be showcased.
You can look forward to our newest developments: we will present a brand new edition of our award winning Eikon lighting, our innovative woodpecker lighting as well as our beautiful pendant Zappy .
If you wish to visit us during the fair and to take a look at our products, you are very welcome to come by at our stand (Cbis110) or to get in touch to make an appointment!

Hall 8, Now! Design à vivre
This month, we had a wonderful evening with family, friends and partners, celebrating our studio opening in our stunning old factory building at the harbor of Lübeck. With great respect to the original industrial state, we recently restored the hall by ourselves in a very exhausting, but highly satisfying work. This outstanding location with big historical character is our new office, showroom and workshop.
From now on you will find us here:
Einsiedelstrasse 6 / LMG Gelände / Alte Lehrwerkstatt
we have some great news to share with you today:
The EIKON lighting has won the German Design Award!
Out of 2,250 submissions the German Design Council has honoured the Eikon with the „Special Mention Award“ as an achievement with particularly noteworthy solutions.
With its features regarding functionality and operability, durability, product aesthetics and emotional content, the lamp has set itself apart from the competition and has demonstrated its creative quality.
We are very happy about this prize and think that it is a wonderful way to present the lamp as
an exceptional design, that stands out as a product which is far more than merely pretty wrapping!
Schneid is about to move into a new studio building - a stunning old factory building and outstanding location with big historical character. With great respect to the original industrial state, we recently restored the hall by ourselves in a very exhausting, but highly satisfying work. Now after 2 months we are almost done with the renovation works and can move into our new studio!
We are very happy to finally present our huge swing arm lamp Woodpecker! After the introduction of the product at Maison & Objet Paris, the lamp is now available on our website.
Using high power LEDs and made of ash wood and metal, the lamp appears as a perfect synthesis of tradition and innovation. The material combination of wood and metal gives the lamp a naturalness and comfort, so that it is especially good to use in in the living room or in workspaces.
Completely reduced to essential forms and functions, the Woodpecker appears as a simple line, attached to the wall and extending into a room. The minimalism of the product is clearly reflected in the lamp: An LED bar allows an extreme simplification of the design. Thus, the lamp carries a high degree of innovation, without being futuristic or industrial.
Last week we spent some time in Paris and exhibited at the international design fair Maison & Objet. Our stand was located in hall 8 "Now! Design à vivre" and we found us next to big brands like Normann Copenhagen and &tradition, but also side by side with young and fresh design labels like Llot Llov from Germany, Hartô from France and Fest Amsterdam from Holland.
Our mission was to present our newest products: Our new blanket Hazy, our clothing rack Fil and our beautiful new lamp Woodpecker! To get an impression of our exhibition, take a look on our photos!
Only a few weeks until Maison & Objet Paris and we are preparing the launch of new Schneid products! This cosy comfy piece is one of them: We call it Hazy!
A blanket similar to a landscape and an ocean - the world from a bird’s eye view. Your individual imagination creates own worlds.
Hazy is a home accessory that can be combined with your dreams and creativity and to which a personal part of the owner can be added. Just like a piece of art, this product can, in a higher sense, become a component or element of your own being.
And yet Hazy is based on a very simple principle: the combination of two complementary colors that create a dynamic space through color gradients and the intertwining of different tones. The abstract watercolor appears to have been created by chance; pure intuition produced the dissolution of form and autonomy of colors.
Based on a new patented weaving system, created by the oldest Swedish textile company, Hazy impresses with its many shades and nuances - Its smooth transitions give the watercolor a lightness and tenderness, thereby creating a feeling of warmth and coziness.
Due to the large-scale two-colored pattern, the blanket can be integrated perfectly into a wide variety of living spaces. The high-quality textile measures 175 x 130 cm and is made in Sweden of 100% soft cotton.
We are very happy to announce that Schneid will take part at the international design fair Maison & Objet Paris from 5th to 9th September 2014. Our stand will be in hall 8 Now! Design à vivre! , a space dedicated for the new generation of design, where the latest trends and ideas will be showcased.
In addition to our lightings Zappy and Eikon, we will present a brand new lighting as well as an extraordinary blanket - our first home accessory.
If you wish to visit us during the fair and to take a look at our new products, you are very welcome to come by at our stand (hall 8 / E80) or to contact us to make an appointment.
We are very pleased to announce that the Eikon lamp has been nominated for the German Design Award 2015. Already the nomination we consider as a great distinction, which shows that the Eikon has managed to successfully set itself apart from the masses. And yet we are curious about the notification of the jury session which will take part in august. We are keeping our fingers crossed!
At this point, we would of course also like to thank you all for your great support!
Die Gewinner des diesjährigen Green Product Award stehen fest und auch die Zappy gehört dazu! In der Kategorie Wohn-Accessoires belegt die Leuchte den großartigen 2. Platz und beweist damit erneut ihre herausragenden Fähigkeiten hinsichtlich Ästhetik, Innovation und Nachhaltigkeit.
Zappy ist eine lebende Leuchte - Inspiriert durch den Pinienzapfen der französischen Wälder, lässt die Leuchte das Gefühl entstehen, die Natur zu sich nach Hause geholt zu haben.
Die sorgfältig handgefertigte Leuchte aus zertifiziertem Eschen- oder Eichenfurnier filtert kalte Leuchtmittel und erleuchtet den Wohnraum so mit außergewöhnlicher Lichtqualität. Während sich das Furnier aus Esche durch eine hellere Farbe und eine höhere Lichtausbeute auszeichnet, erscheint das Eichenfurnier dunkler, so dass die natürliche Struktur des Holzes ersichtlich wird.
Jede Leuchte wird in Norddeutschland aus naturbelassenem, zertifiziertem Holz handgefertigt.
The winners of this year's Green Product Award have been announced and theZappy is one of them! In the category of home accessories, the lamp won 2nd place and proves once again its outstanding capabilities in terms of aesthetics, innovation and sustainability.
Zappy is a living lamp! Inspired by the cone of the french woods, this lamp arouses the feel of nature and forest into your home!
Zappy, the carefully handmade lamp of certified ash or oak veneer, filters cold luminaires and illuminates any indoor space with sublime light quality. While the ash veneer is characterized by a brighter tone and a higher light output, the oak veneer appears darker, so that it brings out the natural structure of the wood.
Every lamp is hand manufactured of untreated certified wood in Northern Germany.
Wir lieben es, mit Materialien zu spielen und zu experimentieren - Sie auf ungewöhnliche Weise zu kombinieren oder aus ihrem gewohnten Kontext zu entnehmen und etwas gänzlich anderes mit ihnen erschaffen...
Um eine atmosphärische Beleuchtung zu erschaffen und gleichzeitig einen neuen Weg hinsichtlich des Materials zu schlagen, entwickelten wir die Idee eines Silikonlampenschirms, der wie Glas erscheint. Mit seiner transluzenten visuellen Erscheinung fügt der Eikon Bubble Lampenschirm der Leuchte neue ästhetische Eigenschaften hinzu. Die optische Täuschung, die das glasähnliche Material erzeugt, wird mit der Berührung des weichen und flexiblen Schirms aufgedeckt.
Jeder Lampenschirm wird in Norddeutschland handgefertigt und besitzt somit auch jeweils individuelle Akzente durch seine sich zufällig in der Produktion gebildeten Bläschen. Auf diese Weise ist jeder Lampenschirm einzigartig.
We love to experiment with materials – combine them in an uncommon way or take materials out of their actual context to use them as something completely different...
To focus on an atmospheric lighting and at the same time strike a new path in terms of material – we developed the idea of a silicone lampshade that seems like glass. With its translucent visual appearance, the Eikon Bubble lampshade brings new aesthetic features to the lamp. Touching the soft and flexible shade will reveal the optical illusion that is initially created by the glass-like material.
By our handmade manufacture, each completed lampshade has individual highlights by its randomly formed bubbles. This way, every lampshade is unique.

Schön war es mal wieder mit allen zusammen auf den Geburtstag von Schneid anzustoßen! Wir sind drei geworden und blicken auf eine tolle Entwicklung zurück, die besonders durch Euch unterstützt wurde. So kann es gerne weitergehen!
In vorweihnachtlicher Stimmung trafen wir uns am Samstag im Showroom von Schneid in der Lübecker Altstadt, um dies mit leckerem Glühwein zu zelebrieren!
It was great to raise a glas with all of you to Schneid's birthday! We are three years now and are looking back to a wonderful development, that was supported especially by you. We would be really happy, if it goes on like that!
In a pre-christmas mood, we met on saturday in Schneid's showroom in the old town of Lübeck to celebrate this with a tasty mulled wine!
