Surfaces, mirror polished
We understand architecture as a background for life. Not the architecture, not the room and not the object should be in the foreground. Our elaborately crafted and polished mirror finishes not simply provide a spectacular shine and incredible depth in the lacquer. Through its special reflective properties it harmoniously integrates itself into a room, like a chameleon. The colors of a room, the atmosphere all were literally reflected in the perfect hand crafted surfaces and ensure that the object harmoniously merge with its environment.

Macassar: The Art of Functional Elegance
Felix Schwake's Purist Approach to Functional Art
German artist and designer Felix Schwake has developed a unique and purist approach to functional art. His focus is on using noble woods and high-quality surfaces to create furniture that is both aesthetically appealing and functional. The focus is not on the piece of furniture itself, but on the harmony between the object, space, and user.
The Role of Architecture
For Schwake, architecture is the backdrop to life. It provides the framework in which the pieces of furniture can take effect. In this sense, architecture is not dominant but serves to connect the functional artworks and the space with each other.
Precious Wood Surfaces: The Connection of Aesthetics and Functionality
A central aspect in Schwake's work is the use of precious wood surfaces. These surfaces are handcrafted and polished to perfection. They not only provide a spectacular shine and incredible depth in the lacquer, but also harmoniously integrate into the space. Through their special reflective properties, they absorb the colours and atmosphere of the room and reflect them. This creates a harmonious connection between the object and its surroundings.
The work of Felix Schwake is an impressive example of functional art. His purist designs and the use of precious wood surfaces create pieces of furniture that are not only aesthetically appealing but also functional. The focus is not on the piece of furniture itself, but on the harmony between the object, space, and user. A philosophy that elevates the concept of functional art to a new level.
