Three German brands – a single attitude.
The joint mission of FSB, Gira and KEUCO: premium-quality components for building construction and a strong commitment to design and culture. This is why in 1998 the three manufacturers founded „POINTS of Contact (in german „BerührungsPUNKTE”), a communication initiative for architects. It stands for interdisciplinary topics concerning architecture and related arts presented, among other things, on the website and through social media activities to inspire architects.
POINTS of Contact is dedicated to these architect-relevant themes as a source of inspiration and ideas – while the three companies involved identify strongly with the communications strategies. With a holistic approach in the form of personal dialogues, events and publications, points of contact are designated and made accessible to architects.
The three companies, FSB, Gira and KEUCO, found their common ground in 1998: in elegant materials, trend-setting ideas, sensual surfaces and their great affinity for architecture. From then on, the communications initiative for architects was to create connections between architecture and overriding subjects.
