When Wolfgang Ahlers, Christian Geyr, and André Reitemeyer first began collaborating, they had no idea that they would end up launching a furniture business. It was the late eighties and they were making a living throwing events in abandoned factories and warehouses in Cologne, often making use of leftover industrial furnishings destined for the scrap heap. Seeing the value in these handmade pieces, they hit upon the idea of creating their own business specializing in long-lasting, well-crafted furniture—and in 1990, Noodles, Noodles & Noodles Corp. was launched.
The trio’s line of tables, benches, beds, and clothes racks use classic early-20th-century design as their inspiration. Our favorite pieces are the steel kitchen units that combine old-world craftsmanship with a modular template. Good news for those interested: They deliver worldwide.
