The Company

System 180 stands for custom, functional spatial solutions – Made in Berlin. The high quality of our work is ensured by a team of highly qualified and highly motivated employees with a passion for clean and lasting design, using our own distinctive construction system, beautifully designed to create and fit out spaces to the highest possible aesthetic standards.

To ensure we can provide our customers with the best possible service, we work in two separate business fields at the same time:

Furnishings Our facility develops and produces furniture in Berlin for modern working and living. In close consultation with our customers, we realise design solutions that encourage a culture of teamworking, putting team culture to the forefront.

Sustainability – made in Berlin

System 180 has always developed and manufactured its products 100% in Berlin.
From our base in Germany’s most modern science and technology park – Berlin Adlershof – we offer our customers our high-performance products on 7,500 square meters of commercial and production space. Our offerings extend from our internal development service, through in-house production in wood and metal all the way to our assembly service.

Straightforward functionality

Good design shows off the technical function of a piece and supports that functionality. What System 180 stands for is its functional honesty: design emerges from function, from the raw materials used, from technology, from the ergonomics of the piece. And the product quite openly shows what it is to the world. System 180 is, at its core, based on an utterly unique principle that allows you to combine multiple options with complete freedom.

Many coveted design prices bear witness to our high standards in terms of form and function.
