STROHBOID: What is the STROHBOID product used for?
Owner Thierry Mathis: In the midst of our garden park, we have two lounges that seamlessly blend into the natural environment. Our lounges are more than just spaces – they are versatile oases that adapt to our guests' individual desires. They invite relaxation and offer an idyllic atmosphere for peaceful moments, while also serving as a refreshing outdoor bar where you can enjoy fine drinks with your loved ones.
Simultaneously, our lounges transform into creative idea spaces, where the possibilities of the photo booth are created, effortlessly converting into a playful children's tent that provides adventures for our youngest guests. For artists, these spaces serve as inspiring backstage environments where they can prepare and unfold, while for business meetings and group work, they provide the ideal backdrop for productive sessions.

It's central to us to take our responsibility towards the environment seriously and integrate sustainability into all our actions. Simultaneously, we keep our finger on the pulse of the times to ensure we fulfill and exceed the changing needs and expectations of our customers.
STROHBOID: What led you to choose the STROHBOID product, and what problems does it solve?
Owner Thierry Mathis: Already at the BOE Fair 2018 (Best of Events), we were captivated by the showcased pavilion. This initial fascination stayed in our memory and was revisited at the end of 2020, when we were seeking suitable ways to enhance our outdoor area in the garden park.
The product offered precisely the qualities we were looking for. As a result, today we are proud owners of two lounges that provide us with a weather-resistant alternative to continuously utilize our natural garden park.
This acquisition solved a crucial challenge for us: the ability to use our outdoor area regardless of weather conditions. The lounges have allowed us to provide our guests with a comfortable environment protected from the elements, without losing the charm and connection to nature. This has expanded our versatility and enabled us to create unique experiences and moments that profoundly impress our visitors.

This option to design our events in harmony with the natural environment gives them a special touch and facilitates unforgettable experiences for our customers.
By integrating the STROHBOID lounges, we have also gained the opportunity to unfold our creativity and realize new visions. The expanded space and versatile usability of the lounges have enabled us to develop innovative concepts for events. Whether it's organizing inspiring workshops, cultural performances, or outdoor meetings – the flexibility of the lounges has allowed us to diversify our offerings and provide our customers with an even broader range of experiences.
