Workshops are places of encounters: Materials meet forms, innovative approaches come together with time-honored skills, and design solutions are found for problems. Most importantly, people come together, share experiences, and work together. One of these workshops is that of Maria-Theresia Bretschneider. The lush plants on the façade reveal that something special can be found inside – though hiding is the last thing that the master carpenter’s workshop would want to do. On the contrary, the location on Sensengasse is a lively meeting place where individual wishes are satisfied, people work and celebrate together. Passionswege 2019 adds another element to the collaborative cosmos at the carpentry shop: studiotut. Marie Nemeth and Silvia Stocker, whose company operates under this name, have in the past shown how skillfully they can unite content, spaces, and products. On this basis, the designers enable intimate – almost romantic – encounters with furniture to make the uniqueness of craftsmanship tangible.
