The significance of the innovative strength of GRASS for the market can be illustrated by some examples from the past as well as present times: Only a few years ago, handle-free furniture fronts were still are rarity. Today they are very popular. With the worldwide first electronically controlled slide system Sensotronic, the electro-mechanical Sensomatic system and the purely mechanical Tipmatic Plus system, GRASS has contributed a major input into this development.
The development of Tiomos, the latest hinge generation by GRASS, has benefited from several decades of know-how and experience. Years of research have been dedicated to reconceptualising and developing every detail and function from the bottom up. The result is a very elegant movement system which already meets all technical and functional requirements of the future.
Years before that there were the GRASS damping systems that helped the trend towards damping systems for drawers and doors to achieve a breakthrough. And decades earlier the development of double-skinned drawer systems, fully synchronised cabinet slides, all-metal hinges and many other innovations that provided the furniture industry and craft-based producers with state-of-the-art products to allow them to realise their own visions.
