Craftsmanship and design from the Bregenzerwald
How many steps does it take to turn a design by the craftspeople at Werkraum Bregenzerwald into a finished product? The individual steps are described here for selected products.
After cutting, the following steps take place: galvanizing, gluing and the drilling of various holes. After the netting has been worked in, the next step is sanding. This ensures that the herb dryer has an entirely smooth surface. The product is ready once the wooden dowels are attached, so that it can be stacked.

Morganite gemstone ring
To make the rose gold ring, the gold is first poured, then shaped, bent and soldered. Next, the stone is set, which is then soldered onto the ring. Surface treatment and polishing are the final steps.
Material: 750/000 rose gold with one morganite gemstone

During meetings with the customer, formats and materials are defined, then hand samples are created. Once the design has been approved, the next step is production, which includes fine-tuning and the detailed design of all components and variants. After final revisions, the production data is sent to the print shop, where production monitoring and quality control also take place.

After the wood is selected, the larch is steam bent over a mould. During construction, it is important to allow the wood to move freely while still creating a seal that does not allow water to penetrate. The surface is then finished with purely natural materials to ensure it is skin-friendly, resulting in an easy-to-clean and smooth surface.
Material: larch, oil, carnauba wax
Design: Simon Hofer, Martin Bereuter
Manufacture: Simon Hofer, Tischlerei Bereuter
Lamellar bed frame
Sheets of rubber, which are manually cut into beams, are then individually weighed, labelled by weight, sorted by thickness and classified. At the same time, the cotton fabric is cut to size. Its edges are hemmed and the cotton ribbon is cut to the right length, stitched onto the fabric, sewn on, and and the zipper is applied. The beams are selected according to the customer's body measurements and inserted into the finished bands. Next, the ash wood slats, which have been classified according to their thickness/strength, are inserted into the beams.
Material: natural rubber, ash wood slats, cotton fabric and ribbons
