Handwerk + Form

We appeared on this design exhibition in cooperation with Oberhauser & Schedler Bau GmbH in Bregenzerwald, Andelsbuch, Austria. We joined with Diaméter group as well and created this “monolit” concrete structure where we developed recessed concrete switches and sockets to these super fine fair-faced concrete walls.

Handwerk + Form is one of the most significant competitions combining design and craftsmanship and a vital force in establishing relationships between local manufacturers and designers from Austria and abroad. It highlights the versatility and innovative capacity of the region’s crafts and trades, ranging from food production to furniture makers, the building industry and service providers.

Founded more than two decades ago by the Crafts and Trades Association of the local community of Andelsbuch in cooperation with graphic designer Harry Metzler, this exceptional competition will take place for the eight time in 2018. Ever since 2000, Werkraum Bregenzerwald organises this competition – and the legendary walkabout – every three years.

The concept of locally made craft products in collaboration with designers can flourish because it addresses a hot topic: the acceleration of the demand of local products with high-end quality which are sustainable for the futureSustainable in the sense of environmental friendly materialisation and to inherit the pieces to another generation.
