bartmann berlin blends traditional craftsmanship and quality with contemporary, functional design. Its product line centers around furniture and everyday objects that have been developed either in-house or in cooperation with other designers.
Robert Zeise, Sebastian Kunath and Lasse Schnack founded the design studio 2007. Since then, the product designers and skilled carpenters have combined everything under one roof: concept, design and production. In an old furniture factory in Berlin-Kreuzberg they develop their designs that are usually the result of an everyday problem and the attempt to find the optimal solution. The result is a reduced, contemporary language of forms, which is not always consistent, but reflects a common attitude: It is a mixture of curiosity, confidence in one’s own experience and inspiration from traditional craftsmanship and manufacturing, which defines the clear signature of the three designers. bartmann berlin combines resource-friendly and sustainable manufacturing with state-of-the art manufacturing methods, using only the highest-quality materials from local sources. From design to sales, the entire manufacturing process takes place at one location, which allows not only seamless quality control and evolution of design but also customization of the individual products.
