He has broad expertise in the areas mentioned and has been part of the DNA of the family business ever since. His particular focus is the holistic view of the company and its further development.

With high standards, the native South African has been supporting Bernd Gruber since 2017. After stints in China, London and Vienna, the networked-thinking architect is now fully dedicated to Interior Design. With a lot of charm and the necessary vigour, the family father leads the Design- and Planning Department in Kitzbühel and takes on every challenge together as a team. Gerrie himself puts a lot of energy and passion into the details of the versatile projects. If he is not in the capital to refuel on City-Flair, he is most likely to be found at one of the Tyrolean lakes to enjoy time with his family.

HISTORY

From traditional carpentry to an international interior design company

1992: Bernd Gruber takes over his father’s traditional carpentry workshop in Stuhlfelden, which has been in existence for more than 30 years, and restructures it in accordance with his own ideas.

1997: The International Furniture Fair in Milan fascinates and inspires us to take the step into a new future and in the same year Bernd Gruber lays the foundation stone for today’s showroom in Aurach near Kitzbühel, that same year.

2010: Creative Director Philipp Hoflehner joins the company and has been shaping the conceptual and stylistic brand and projects of Bernd Gruber together with a top-class team ever since.

2016: We expand our production facility in Stuhlfelden by 2,000 square metres. This brand new high-tech manufactory embodies the consistent implementation of the connection between architecture, craftsmanship and design.

2019: Bernd Gruber launches its first room fragrance with the aim to make beloved interior homes tangible at all times. Bernd Gruber No°-01 is the essence of these unforgettable homes. The perfume consits of warmth, cosiness and the special feeling to come home.

2020: Bernd Gruber opens a new office in Munich. The unique relation between craftsmenship, tradition and contemporary design finds ist place in the bavarian capital: In a 200 square metre villa in Bogenhausen expert teams lead and execute new and demanding projects which demonstrate another step towards international expansion.

2023: Bernd Gruber leaves operational Management on September 1. His wife Ruth Gruber follows him in their well-deserved retirement on October 1. At the same time, Philipp and Michael Gruber - in additoni to Philipp Hoflehner - are appointed to the new Management.
