Handmade in Germany. Manufactory 4.0

Since the begin­ning of January our new book is published: Hand­made in Germany. Manu­fac­tory 4.0 presents German manu­fac­to­ries of the 21st century.

Manu­fac­to­ries from Germany have a world­wide repu­ta­tion. Whether porce­lain, watches, organs or writing instru­ments — the master­pieces with their outstanding design have their origin in the tradi­tional crafts­man­ship of Central Europe.

Pascal Johanssen gives an insight into the prac­tice and future ideas of the most impor­tant German manu­fac­to­ries. He arranges their unique selling points into cate­gories such as inde­pen­dence, author­ship, respon­si­bility or beauty. In detailed inter­views, masters of their profes­sion provide insights into their world, always accom­pa­nied by photographs of the respec­tive manu­fac­to­ries that are as aesthetic as they are infor­ma­tive.

Our book gives a picture of a contem­po­rary under­standing of the quality of prod­ucts and their manu­fac­ture, which encom­passes tradi­tional values such as func­tion and dura­bility as well as current tech­nolo­gies and ethical prin­ci­ples. An exciting look into the future of the manu­fac­tory in the 21st century.
