Wendt & Kühn

Exhibition stand for Handmade in Germany Worldtour

Wendt & Kühn from the Ore Mountains in Saxony has been producing figures and musical boxes with fine German craftsmanship for 100 years. The flower children and the angels with the legendary eleven white dots on their green wings in particular have conquered the hearts of people all over the world.

The figurines by Wendt & Kühn get their life from their warmth, the colours and especially the timber they are handmade of. A simple presentation of these pieces with museum showcases seemed to us not appropriate and too cold. To emphasise the origin of the figurines in a poetic way we had the idea to make them raise out of a »sea« made of those wood shavings left over from the production process.
