The following formats are available:

Web format
May be used for PowerPoint presentations, internet, etc.

Presentation
A scaled-down version of the original image. May be used for presentations or print media.

Original

DWG files
2-D / 3-D files for architectural interior planning services.
These files show one single model.

The available formats may differ between images.

Search function

You can use the search function on the main page of the image database to find the photos.
You find a link to our search engine in the menu bar in the right upper corner. This link is always available.

Our database provides a full text search function. Our search engine will retrieve all matches by searching under the keywords and the tags.
The results page will only matches that have both search words (AND query). It is not necessary to enter the entire word.
The search word must have at least 3 digits.

All keywords and search words are in German and English. You can change the language via the drop-down menu in the right upper corner.
The search engine will only look for English search words, when the language is set to "English".

You can narrow down the search by using the drop-down menus or by using the hierarchical category index.
For instance, when you are looking for close-ups of "series 1500 Luca", you have to enter the name of the series as search word and select "close-ups" as image category.
Alternatively, instead of typing in a search word, you can find series 1500 Luca via the drop-down menu category selection : "series" – "wooden seating" – "1500 Luca".

When you click on search, the database will show all matches.
In order to reset your search, simply select "Make your choice" in the drop-down menu.

These are just a few of the possibilities to comb through our database.

When you click on the "search" button, the search engine results page will open.
