Since 1979, the workshop of Thomas Schmitter has been designing furniture and rooms in the spirit of the cabinetmakers of the 18th century.
From selected woods are created custom-made furniture, modern in their formal language or made to suit the historical model of the space. They meet the highest expectations of their clients, from design to execution. These expectations usually extend far beyond the creation of individual pieces of furniture. The bishop’s residence in Passau, the Baroque castle in Bavaria, the neoclassical country estate in Hamburg or the art nouveau Villa in Nymphenburg – all created in the style of their respective period. Their present inhabitants seek to transform these according to their individual conceptions of space.
To translate these provisos into an architectural vision and creative design demands a high degree of interpretative energy. At the same time, the work requires expertise in classical formal languages and the craftsmanship of a cabinetmaker from the 18th century. In other words, a trained eye, skill in handling solid woods and a feeling for the potential of each board. To ensure long-lasting and trouble-free functionality of the objects, great emphasis is placed on the careful constructive interpretation of the works.=
