Friday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m
Saturday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m
Sunday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m
We offer our visitors the following supporting program on all four days:
- A walk through the garden! If the weather is nice, we will also put the furniture outside.
- Our historical loom will be in the center and will be covered with a professional "chain".
at different times or on occasion it will be possible to see the loom in action as well.
With the tools of the past and the processes of today, something new is being created that already seemed lost - hand-woven fabrics on furniture and objects as a holistic design.
Because the hand-woven fabric enables a lively surface structure and a diversity that cannot be found in industrial production with materials or is not intended and implementable from an economic point of view. Therefore, this form of textile design and creation contrasts with a cultural loss that is to be revived and brought into the present day in a contemporary context. Not profane but at second glance - post-industrial productive.
In my furniture objects, I take up the textile design of the Bauhaus School of Art, in which innovative hand-woven fabrics were designed and marketed very successfully back then. A homage to 100 years of Bauhaus! The fabrics mostly consist of natural linen and cotton. They are decoratively processed on high-quality "mid-century" design furniture made of fine woods such as teak, cherry or rosewood, as well as garden furniture and decorative objects. The exhibition is dedicated to my dear wife Isabella (Dipl. textile designer and hand weaver †01.04.2019), with whom I developed the work and who unfortunately died suddenly and much too early in childbirth.
Born in 1970, Waldorf student, journeyman furniture maker and winner of “the good form” for furniture design from the Krefeld carpentry guild. Various projects, drawings, collages and photography. Art therapy work with people with disabilities in Marburg Lahn and Ottersberg. Since 2013 development of decorative fabrics, objects and furniture design together with my wife Isabella Lippeck.
