History

Tolerant thinking, coupled with an unconditional desire to expand its own horizons, have always been guiding principles for sieger design. Company founder, architect and general contractor Dieter Sieger, designed and built customised detached homes, entire settlements and exclusive villas, not to mention furnishing several sailing and motor yachts, before embarking on a third career and becoming one of the world’s most innovative and successful bathroom designers. When his sons Christian and Michael Sieger joined the family business, the range offered by their design company was extended once again: marketing, communication design, design management and public relations complemented industrial design, architecture and trade fair stand construction. In 2005, the brothers launched their own premium brand, SIEGER.
