Factory & Factory outlet
In the idyllic Lueneburg Heath, surrounded by meadows and forests, LIVOS has its current headquarters. In 1990, an old furniture factory was rebuilt and modernized in Emern, a village between Hamburg and Hanover.
On 8000 m² LIVOS produces about 250 products for do-it-yourselfers, craftsman, designers, retailers and wholesalers from all over the world. The commitment of people has a value here and jobs are created in the region. This allows LIVOS to react flexible to orders and to work dynamically.
Entrance hall with Architecture Prize
Wow! – accompanied by great amazement. We often experience these reactions when visitors enter the hall. Because no one expects this unique atmosphere in a paint factory.
An architect from Munich, who
normally planned cathedrals, was found for the demanding construction.
Based on a Celtic cross, the intermediate ceiling was removed, and a
lighter structure has been realized over 2 floors.
As the bricklayers should build cracks, they were just before a strike, so the architect himself demonstrated with his hands how to do it. To leave trodden paths sometimes requires courage, but offers the possibility to reach new horizons. Refreshing cracks in perfection, as every individual character creates personality.
The hall and all the work inside and outside the company building are
always evolving, like everything at LIVOS, sometimes not immediately
visible from an external view.
Recently the hall floor got a major renovation. The formerly painted “water course” and the circles were changed with a spatula technique and glass stones, the surrounding with crushed sandstone.
Own linseed oil press
The base of most LIVOS products is linseed - one of the oldest cultivated plants. Tons of the seeds are processed in our own linseed press without extracting chemicals and cold-pressed.
through the high content of unsaturated fatty acids, linseed oil is
appreciated as valuable food. Precisely these fatty acids have the
property to react strongly with oxygen and to connect the molecules.
Combined with other raw materials they create natural surfaces, which
last long, remain elastic and are able to “breath”.
Benefit from our experience - more than 40 years – in the formulation of natural paints.
Biodiversity is lived nature protection. As by shopping in the supermarket, you influence which vegetables are grown, so you support by purchasing LIVOS products the cultivation of safflower, madder, flax etc. (Rohstoffliste)
And we do not stop to research - always in search of native plants that improve our products and bring the potential for innovation.
