Klaus Lohmeyer is the founder of the jewellery label Werkstatt München. The collections are focused on the essentials design and handcraft.
As a Gold and Silversmith he opened his first studio in 1996 and since then has been working on the development of a masculine jewellery collection, which can be found at some of the most acclaimed avantgarde fashion boutiques worldwide. In 1998 the first Werkstatt:München Collection was presented during the Prêt-à-porter shows in Paris.
His jewellery is based on a mixture of refined roughness and high level hand-tooling. All is hand made and designed in house, an atelier in the heart of Munich. The materials are pure: Gold, Silver and Leather, especially vegetal tanned for Werkstatt München.
With his team Klaus Lohmeyer designs jewellery which embellishes the personality of its owner. At the same time it is characterized by it seeming simplicity. The attention to detail and the ambitious finish which is often visible at second glance turn the pieces into unique luxury objects.
The source of inspiration is the beauty and roughness of nature. Symbols of the classical tattoo vocabulary like flaming hearts, anchors and skulls are recurrent motifs and underline the rebellious as well as the romantic attitude of the designs.
