Innovation and expertise

Innovative interior solutions for the premium automobile segment provide extraordinarily high-quality surfaces and fascinating designs.

Every stitch counts

Unlike fabric, a needle hole in leather hide cannot be eliminated. This is why the sewn covers for instrument panels and center consoles are made by hand.

Like a tailor-made suit for every vehicle

Our high-quality instrument panels, center consoles and door panels work together in many premium automobiles to provide an optimum atmosphere of well-being in the interior.

Innovative processes
at DRÄXLMAIER

Innovative processes

Lightweight construction

With products optimized for weight and installation space, we support our customers in making their contribution to sustainable mobility.

Innovative processes

Natural fibers

In the BMW i3, DRÄXLMAIER established visible natural fibers for the first time as a premium surface in the door panel.

Innovative processes

D3F

Within the patented D3F (DRÄXLMAIER fast fiber forming) process, natural fibers and injection molding technologies are combined. This enables a considerable reduction in weight.

Innovative processes

Thin-wall foaming

Thin-wall foaming makes it possible to laminate materials of different thicknesses – like leather, artificial leather, or film – onto the same carrier. This reduces weight and complexity, while the high-quality "feel" remains the same.

Surfaces

The best parts

Every skin is different. Only the perfectly trained eye of an expert can identify the best pieces of leather and combine the individual parts to create perfect harmony in the finished vehicle.

Surfaces

Individual character

The character of an automotive interior is always the synthesis of materials, surfaces, colours and surface layouts. Split mass, seam patterns and radii make the result perfect.

Surfaces

Variety of variants

Whether it is handcrafted genuine leather, modern surface materials such as visible natural fibers, or innovative materials such as DecoSoul – DRÄXLMAIER provides individuality in the automobile interior.

Types
of ambient light

Ambient lighting

dLight dynamic

Thanks to freely controllable RGB-LEDs, dLight lets dynamic color effects run along a light bar. This is especially well-suited for optically displaying functions and warning messages in the vehicle.

Ambient lighting

dLight dimension

dLight dimension creates a unique three-dimensional depth effect using an optical structure on the back side of a translucent carrier. The result is a completely new, enhanced sense of space.

Ambient lighting

dLight MP

dLight MP creates a unique, precisely executed design on leather surfaces. The fine microperforation is nearly invisible by daylight. At night, however, there are almost endless design possibiities.

Ambient lighting

dLight paspol

Using dLight paspol, shapes can be emphasized with different-colored light. This technology combines uniform light distribution with low installation space requirements.

Ambient lighting

dLight sphere

With its opaque uniform surface, dLight sphere creates an exclusive lighting mood in the rear compartment. In addition, the sculptural lighting element is capacitatively switchable and dimmable.

Functional lighting

Intelligent
supplementary features

Ambient lighting began as a decorative element. In the future, it will perform functions and, as a human-centered light, also influence psychology and physiology.

Using this feature, it would be possible to expand the range of electric vehicles  – for example, if the color effects made the passengers feel subjectively warmer, then the actual temperature could go lower and energy could be saved for a longer driving range.

Functional integration

Individualized
storage trays

With dTray easy, the DRÄXLMAIER Group has developed a high-quality storage system that is integrated into the design. This is an adaptive storage system, which can be pulled out by the end-user as needed and then remains in the open position using a simple mechanism. The unique closing mechanism can also be operated with only one hand and without requiring a great deal of force.

Facts
and things to know

Color variety

Thanks to RGB-LEDs, the light solutions for ambient lighting can reproduce up to 284 trillion light colors.

Traditional handcrafting

DRÄXLMAIER has 140 years of experience in working with leather.

By the numbers

DRÄXLMAIER processes more than 85,000 kilometers of thread and 200,000 cow hides per year.
