We spend about 90 percent of our time indoors. It’s time to make every space truly matter. Leveraging 25 years of design expertise at FRAME, Robert Thiemann established BETTERNESS to support you in getting there. 

BETTERNESS empowers companies and institutions to envision, design and build meaningful spaces in a world in constant flux. Prioritizing health and wellbeing, these environments are materialized to minimise environmental impact. These interiors support people to thrive at what they do – work, shop, play or dwell – and foster connections. Co-creation with user communities ensures a strong sense of ownership.

These interiors engage the senses, offering physical experiences in a digital-first world. While no one actually owns spaces, everyone is responsible for taking care of them for future generations. That’s why we advocate for environments that can adapt to evolving needs and demands – without waste. 


BETTERNESS acts as a consultancy and agency for spatial design. Based on an understanding of client demands and (local) contexts, we co-develop visions, concepts and design briefs. At the core of a global network, we connect companies and institutions with architects, artists, designers, manufacturers, scientists and technologists to achieve communal goals.
