Since 2016, ceramist Helene Scharge has been specialising in the development of a utility tableware made of handmade, through-dyed porcelain in her own porcelain workshop.

The multi-functionality of the individual pieces creates a pleasant reduction to a few, balanced clear forms. These serve all essential requirements, are harmoniously coordinated with each other and effectively accentuate food and drinks.

The production of this very special collection is truly a technical challenge for the exceptionally experienced porcelain designer.

OODD Studios is an interdisciplinary design cooperative that explores the potentials of contemporary crafts in relation to the advancing digitalisation and its associated needs in concept-based projects.

The basis is the specially developed material contemporary lace, which through its unified filled and empty spaces | materiality and immateriality is a textile parade example for the actual state of the digitalised and yet analogue society.

The visually haptic textiles are individual, tangible on different levels.

Anne Kaden is a silversmith, industrial designer and owner of Atelier ANNE KADEN - Schmuck und Gerät (Jewellery and Utensils) in Leipzig.

She combines her expertise in craftsmanship with the research for new and creative forms of expression. On Iceland she discovered how metal and earth can be merged with the heat of fire to create a new and unique piece of jewellery.
wie sich Metall und Erde mit der Hitze des Feuers zu einem neuen, einzigartigen Schmuckstück vereinen lassen.

The fascination and special magic of such creative moments accompany her from then on. She named her unique pieces made of 925 silver „MEMENTO"; they are souvenirs of a place, a person or memories of special moments.

For the architect Angela Wandelt, wearing hats is an expression of personality and individuality. She herself has been wearing and collecting hats since her youth and taught herself the craft of hat making.

She finally founded "Gela-Hats" and created a place for very individual fashion in Leipzig. Soon her creations were also enthusiastically received at the trade fairs in New York, Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna.

"Fashion is ephemeral. Style never" This insight of Coco Chanel has been adopted by the hat designer.
