Our focus is on:
Our commissions in the public sector are focused on the preservation and refurbishment of textiles and fabrics in historic buildings.
We are proud to have contributed to renewing numerous historic buildings, such as the German Chancellor’s Bungalow, Bonn City Hall, Drachenburg Castle in Königswinter, Augustusburg and Falkenlust Palaces in Brühl, the New Palace in Stuttgart, Villa Seligmann in Hanover and the Weissensee School of Art in Berlin.
Our partners in public projects are the responsible historic preservation authorities and the respective project oversight group, with the architects or building historians supervising the planning.
When executing such commissions, the tasks of WAND & RAUM include research, the preparation of fabric specifications, and the performance of the fabric work by our trained and experienced craftspeople.
Fabric craftsmanship is performed almost exclusively within our customers’ four walls – their most personal, private space. In carrying out our commissions, we always respect the principle that the home’s privacy is inviolable, or, “my home is my castle”.
Accordingly, the focus of our work is not on realising the quotidian design of the interior decoration industry, with its consultants and interior designers, but on the customer’s relationship to the material and the form to be “dressed”. Our motto is “revealing by covering”. Placing fabrics in a conceptual and personal relationship, and thus “dressing” such forms as windows, seat furniture, walls and floors is both exciting and satisfying for us.
We will be happy to resolve your stylistic questions and address the parallels between contemporary and historical aspects. For us, adapting historical seat furniture to modern architecture or integrating timeless furniture in historical architecture are welcome challenges which we meet with experience and creativity.
Answers to all your questions regarding fabric-related design may be found in our samples room in Bad Godesburg with its broad array of fabric samples.
I am looking forward to your visit.
