How can new technologies transform, enhance or even replace the encounter with the element of water? Dornbracht is devoting time to this question during this year’s Fuorisalone in Milan (9–14 April 2019). In the context of an immersive installation, visitors can discover water as an interface – between an individual and technology, between materiality and immateriality, between physical and virtual experience. The project, which is entitled “Is Memory Data?”, takes up the brand’s long-standing cultural commitment at the same time as marking the beginning of a new and experimental format: the Dornbracht Research Lab.

The Thalasso pool, a very nice, heated seawater pool is offered indoor, along with several new saunas and Dornbrachts showers, such as SENSORY SKYATT and HORIZONTAL SHOWERATT. Outdoor, there are three new bath experiences right next to the waterfront, by the hotel's stunning open-air bath. In the Thalasso suite Dornbrachts VERTICAL SHOWERATT can be enjoyed.


To the wonderful location along the beach, people have come during the last two hundred years to relax. The proximity to the sea and nature underlines the meaning of well-being in this tranquil place.

Dornbracht Fittings in the Luxury Hotel Café Royal Newly Designed by David Chipperfield

After 4 years in redesign and restoration, Café Royal, the London luxury hotel, reopened its doors last December. Dating back to the 19th century, through its redesign by the renowned British architect David Chipperfield, the listed structure has advanced from a posh restaurant to a five-star hotel with 159 rooms. The hotel's bathrooms, which feature Dornbracht's Tara series, offer the highest in quality and style.


Tara is the contemporary interpretation of a design icon. Chipperfield selected its puristically subtle design as a means of introducing elegant understatement to the room, breaking with the historical luxury of the building. The faucet's timeless design fits in perfectly with the light Carrara marble sinks, bathtubs, floors, and walls. A recessed rain shower emits an ambiance of wellness.

The French wine dealer Nicholas Thévenon originally opened Café Royal in 1865 as a restaurant. With such illustrious guests as Oscar Wilde, Virginia Woolf, Winston Churchill and, later on, Liz Taylor, Richard Burton, Brigitte Bardot, David Bowie and Mick Jagger, it quickly became a legendary cult address for the London bourgeoisie.

Tomás Saraceno „in orbit“

Hot on the heels of the "Cloud Cities" installation by Tomás Saraceno sponsored by Dornbracht, his latest exhibition "in orbit" in the K21 Ständehaus in Düsseldorf also portrays his vision of a future world: 2,500m² of steel net and air-filled spheres on three seemingly floating levels 25m in the air.


In his work, the Argentinean continually deals with scientific phenomena, from spiders' webs to astrophysics and biology. For "in orbit", Saraceno worked for around three years with biologists, engineers and architects to create his most complex installation yet, which can be seen as a permanent installation in the K21 until autumn 2014.

Within the Dornbracht Installation Projects, Saraceno presented his three-dimensional installation "Cloud Cities" in the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin in 2011. The exhibition presented an organic space mesh which, by means of single modules inspired by nature, created a new, utopic life cosmos. Since 1996, Dornbracht has been constantly supporting selected exhibitions and projects from various artists within the scope of the Dornbracht Culture Projects.

Jeremy Shaw in the Schinkel Pavillon

In his installation "Introduction to the Memory Personality", part of the ”ONE ON ONE“ exhibition sponsored by Dornbracht in the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Jeremy Shaw already dealt with cultural phenomena and altered states of consciousness. In a confrontational one-to-one situation, visitors were faced with film sequences which tried to hypnotize viewers through image and sound.


Following "ONE ON ONE" and his participation in Dornbracht Conversations 4 on the topic of "Public Intimacy" (December 2012), the Canadian artist is now coming to Berlin with a solo exhibition: From June 23 to July 21, 2013, the Schinkel Pavillon (LINK 4) is presenting "Variation FQ".

In his latest work, the artist portrays the transsexual dancer Leiomy Maldonado in a dynamic, seductive voguing performance − the dance style which became popular through New York subcultures in the 1960s. The 11-minute film in the style of Norman McLaren's ballet film "Pas de deux" is not only based on the depiction of the graceful yet aggressive dance movements but also presents the provocative interplay of dance, subculture and gender.

Dornbracht 2nd in ranking of the top 50 Germany luxury companies

Industry magazine Luxury Business Report– produced by, INLUX, the Institute for Luxury– has ranked the Dornbracht brand second in its annual report on the top 50 German luxury companies. Dornbracht impressed the publication’s advisory panel of industry experts, earning high marksin the six criteria on which the ranking is based: exclusivity, size, internationality, international awareness, Internet presence and sustainability. Moreover, the company’s long-term cultural commitment under the aegis of Culture Projects played a decisive role in the ranking as well.


Luxury Business Report provided its reasoning for the outstanding ranking awarded to Dornbracht: ‘Here, the Dornbracht brand shows how to do it right – and proves that it is possible for a family-owned company to succeed internationally and achieve recognition as an innovation leader. Along with a transparent information policy, this makes Dornbracht the climber of the year’.

In their rankings, the experts were guided by specific questions: Does the company stand for the best quality? Do buyers develop emotional ties to this brand? Is the company innovative? Based on these and other questions, and on the six ranking criteria, Dornbracht was not only well-positioned in comparison to brands across all of the sectors considered, but it also led the field in the category of Interior Design and Decoration.

Along with Dornbracht, the luxury ranking listed several other well-known German companies, among them Montblanc (3rd place); Meissen (10th place; Porsche (24th place); Hugo Boss (42nd place) and Thonet (44th place). This year's first-place ranking went to the photography and optics company Leica Camera.

Artistic design of the Goethe Institute in Prague

The exhibition “Drinnen und Draußen. Künstlerische Interventionen im Goethe-Institut Prag (Inside and Outside). Artistic interventions in the Goethe Institute in Prague” opens November 22, 2012. As part of a project, five German artists have designed five areas in the institute’s building that are open to the public. The works were created as an artistic response to the architecture of the Art Nouveau building (1905) and to the urban social environment. The curator of this extraordinary project is Prof. Stephan Berg, director of the Bonn Art Museum.


The Goethe Institute has long been a showcare for contemporary German art, as well as a meeting place for the young artistic elite from the Czech Republic. With its current project, the institute hopes to become more open to the public. Integral parts of the institute, these works can be seen over the next three years.

The “ONE ON ONE” exhibition (November 18, 2012 to January 20, 2013 in Berlin) creates a confrontational one-on-one situation. International artists created works and spaces specfically for the exhibition and designed to be experienced by one visitor at a time. In contrast to gigantic museums with spacious exhibition halls, the visitor will move through individual spaces, where they will be alone with the works.


“ONE ON ONE” will take place at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, a place for the production and presentation of discourse-oriented contemporary art. Dornbracht has been in cooperation with the Institute since 2000. Most recently, it helped sponsor exhibitions such as “Into Me / Out of Me” in collaboration with MoMA PS1 New York and KW Berlin.

Dornbracht at the 2012 Designers’ Saturday

The 14th edition of Designers’ Saturday, with the theme “Design is a Statement”, takes place November 3 to 4, 2012 in Langenthal (Switzerland). The event, held every two years, has a large effect on the Swiss design scene and acts as a gathering place for the architecture and design industry. This year, it will once again include unusual presentations and exciting concepts.


With the title “Connected Comfort – Home Automation for the Senses”, Dornbracht shows a visionary view of a lounge-like living and bathing area. The transitions are fluid. Visitors are led through the installation on a journey and experience how the spatial situation changes because of preprogrammed scenarios. What makes this project special is the presentation of the capability for multiple scenarios of the overall ambiance of an apartment / house by the integrative combination of products or systems. In this case, the technology serves as an “enabler” for a special experience.

Wendy at MoMA PS1

The Young Architects Program has been on display since July 1st for the 13th time in the courtyard of MoMA PS1 in Long Island City.

This year's winner is the temporary urban scaffolding design "Wendy" by New York architects Matthias Hollwich and Marc Kushner (HWKN). Wendy visualizes ecological awareness and responsibility and extends the boundaries of architecture in an entirely new way, because the integrated blue nylon material neutralizes the air pollution produced by approximately 260 cars with its titania nanoparticle coating. The star-shaped iconic structure of the installation is only limited by natural influences including shade, wind and rain and provides the MoMA PS1 grounds with a unique visual identity within the framework of the Warm-Up Summer Music Series. Wendy is sponsored by Dornbracht among others.

HWKN was founded in 2006 and develops innovative responsible projects at the interface of architecture, necessity and sustainability.

Dornbracht trainees gain first-hand experience of life and work in South Korea

On February 9, 2012, two Dornbracht trainees started some rather unusual practical training. They are spending two weeks in Gwangju, South Korea, getting an impression of everyday life and the working environment there. They and their fellow students from the school of mechatronics at the Theodor Reuter Berufskolleg training college in Iserlohn will not just be gaining an insight into what goes on, they will also be taking part in projects themselves. The young people from Iserlohn are making a return visit to South Korea. The previous autumn, a class from Gwangju had seen for themselves how work and training went on in a company like Dornbracht.

This is the eighth time that Dornbracht has initiated the "Dornbracht Installation Projects". The "Cloud Cities" installation of Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno (*1973) is on display at the Hamburger Bahnhof National Gallery until 19th February 2012. The exhibition has been extended by a good month due to great demand.

Spiders’ webs, astrophysics and legendary visionaries such as Buckminster Fuller, are just some of the sources of inspiration for artist Tomás Saraceno. His works, which he calls "biospheres", are organic dimensional meshworks that float in the room, sometimes occupied by plants and sometimes simply held by black cable nets. The artist originally studied architecture and the starting point for his works is his interest in our current and future living environment and in society.
