this summer two new exhibitions will be shown in the Werkraumhaus. With the temporary workshop of the Werkraumschule Bregenzerwald, an “open” workshop is moving into the Werkraumhaus, in which you can discover various projects from the Werkraumschule Bregenzerwald. For the exhibition “Generation Köln meets Werkraum Bregenzerwald”, Generation Köln – a collective of four designers – traveled to the Bregenzerwald in summer 2019, where they met five selected craftsmen, all members of Werkraum Bregenzerwald. In this special collaboration, various pieces of furniture, mostly made in silver fir, were created, in which the impressions of the landscape, traditions, building culture and handicrafts can be found.

For a very special collaboration, the four designers from Generation Köln, Karoline Fesser, Klemens Grund, Tim Kerp and Thomas Schnur, traveled to the Bregenzerwald in summer 2019, where they met the five craftsmen Harald Berchtold (Gerhard Berchtold Tischlerei), Martin Bereuter (Tischlerei Bereuter), Valentin Winder (Tischlerei Winder), Wolfgang Meusburger (Tischlerei Wolfgang Meusburger) and Wolfgang Schmidinger (Schmidinger Möbelbau) met – all members of the Werkraum Bregenzerwald.
The result was various pieces of furniture, mostly made in silver fir, in which the impressions of the landscape , traditions, building culture and craftsmanship in the Bregenzerwald can be seen. Now that the pieces of furniture have been presented to the public for the first time at PASSAGEN Interior Design Week Cologne in January 2020, they are traveling back to the Bregenzerwald, where they can be seen in the Werkraumhaus from June 4, 2020.
