Our focus

We simplify the process of planning, designing and the producing of furniture and interiors. imos software applications benefit from simplicity, efficiency and innovation with a high quality "Made-in-Germany" standard. Our solutions are based on an innovative technological approach providing multiple ways of designing and modifying furniture at every step of the process. Most importantly, imos software ensures an internal manufacturing standard. Together with customers, leading manufacturers of fittings and woodworking machine suppliers, we constantly verify the requirements of the industry and accordingly adjust the software solution. Consequently, we have become one of the leading providers to the worldwide furniture market within the software sector.

  1. Founding

    The company was founded in 1993 by Professor Dr. Frank Prekwinkel, with the aim of standardising object-oriented CAD / CAM technology within the furniture industry.

  2. Applications for furniture suppliers

    The furniture supplier industry provides the imos users with their current product catalogues for direct use in the design.

  3. imos NET 1.0

    In 2001, imos NET, the web-based presentation and ordering system for innovative eBusiness solutions, was developed.

  4. Internationalization

    Internationalization of products and global marketing. Today, the software is available in 27 languages and is available in over 82 countries.

  5. Data from iFurn

    Supplier products online - catalogues of leading suppliers are available online via iFurn and can be processed directly in imos CAD.

  6. Sale-to-Machine

    Based on the idea of "Sale-to-Machine", imos 10.0 offers not only new possibilities in 3D modelling and the control of 5-axis machines, but also includes modules for sales support. imos 10.0 pushes further the philosophy of the continuous data flow by passing data to the front end sales departments.

  7. 360/AR

    360 evokes thoughts of "all-round" or "closed" - this also applies to space, time and process. imos AG announces its new product group, which makes it possible to integrate the end customer into the design and order process for the furniture manufacturer.

  8. imos iX

    imos iX is the complete solution for the sale and manufacture of furniture and equipment for companies using a networked production facility and industry 4.0. The "i" stands for INNOVATION and INTEGRATION, the "X" refers to words like EXCHANGE and CONNEXION, and stands for the exchange of the data on different applications throughout the entire sales and manufacturing process.

  9. iXperience Center

    The iXperience Center in Herford is opened as part of the company's 25th anniversary: A room in the digital world in which the functional diversity of imos iX with AR/VR can be demonstrated and different scenarios for furniture and interior design can be discussed.

  10. Networking wins

    iX 2019 appears as a further development of the iX series in the concept of an integrated overall solution with extended VR and extended digital technologies.


    The development of networked applications results in iX Interio, imos' first ecosystem for furniture manufacturers and interior designers. Suppliers, manufacturers and end customers are networked with each other - even beyond company boundaries.
