    One single, harmonic whole: WMF Professional with new brand image
    BirkenfeldWMF Professional appears with a complete new look for this year's Internorga. The transformed corporate design stages the brand's extensive product world with spotlights on diversity of styles and applications. "WMF has the right products for any hospitality concept or any desired ambience. Our new image worlds spotlight this strength", says Susanne Schmidt, Director of Marketing & Product Management at proHeq GmbH. And the changed look of WMF Professional also emphasizes the close link between table culture and its extended effect on room ambience. This concept too is aptly expressed in the language of the photography: applied scenarios for cutlery and glassware, serving wares, buffet equipment and table decoration are depicted in harmony with interior designs in the "real-life" catering and hospitality environment – the brand has deliberately dispensed with artificial sets for all its photo-shoots.

    The new corporate design of WMF Professional will tempt clients into the brand's creative cosmos and so, as a source of inspiration, direct them toward the unique ambience that will be their very own. A crucial factor in this respect is the authenticity of the image worlds, and this is precisely why all the photo-shoots took place in real restaurants and hotels. "An artificially constructed set staged in a photographic studio can never capture the essence of gastronomy. Because the interplay with the actual premises is totally lost", explains Susanne Schmidt. The new brand identity also rules out the use of artificial lighting and retouching for impeccability. Instead, centre stage is reserved for authentic shots of set tables with all the atmosphere intact. As Ms Schmidt says: "We want to make our clients feel like taking their seats at the set table."
