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.

Venice Biennale 2017: Dornbracht sponsors contribution for German Pavilion

The 57th Venice Biennale started on 13 May 2017. For the third time, Dornbracht has sponsored the contribution for the German Pavilion which was designed by Anne Imhof this year. Especially for the Biennale, Imhof has been developing a piece of work which travels through space and time, comprising sculptural, installative and performative elements. In her scenarios, she envisions how the human body is constituted within material and discursive, technological, socio-economic and pharmaceutical demarcations.

"Exchanges with artists such as Anne Imhof are a significant component of our brand awareness and deliver key impulses in order to continually develop bathroom and kitchen design", claims Managing Partner Andreas Dornbracht.


Golden Lion for German Pavilion

On the day of the opening of the Biennale, the jury of the 57th Venice Biennale awarded the Golden Lion for Best National Participation to Germany and artist Anne Imhof. In bestowing the award amid enthusiastic applause, the president of the jury, Manuel Borja-Villel, praised her show as “a powerful and disturbing installation that poses urgent questions about our time.” Dornbracht congratulates Anne Imhof and is delighted to have supported her impressive work.

Dornbracht’s SELV in the new Garage museum and exhibition centre in Moscow

Garage, Russia's biggest private museum for contemporary art, is equipped throughout with Dornbracht's SELV series fittings.

The "Garage Centre for Contemporary Culture" was founded in 2008, and moved to a spectacular new home in Moscow's Gorky Park in June 2015.
Award-winning Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas has turned the former "Seasons of the Year Café" into a futuristic-looking structure – whilst retaining the historic fabric of the building. When the two huge, vertical sliding doors at the front of the building are open, they are reminiscent of garage doors, a visual symbol of the building's trademark and at the same time a reference to its name. During the conversion phase, the centre for art and educational activities was housed in an equally impressive pavilion designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. The transitional building will be restored after the ceremonial opening on 12 June 2015.


The works of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija and Russian Erik Bulatov, are among those on view at the opening of this contemporary art venue whose 5400 square metres are suffused with light.

As a non-profit organisation, the Garage is a platform for art, culture, research and education that promotes a new appreciation of art in Russia.

The meaning of haptics in the interior architectonics context

(Concept of a trade event for architects, interior designers and trade dealers)

Feeling and touching surfaces plays an outstanding role in daily life, be it at home or elsewhere, but it is seldom perceived consciously. To put it precisely, this is often only the case when the sense of touch sends negative signals to the brain, the consequence being discomfort or an unpleasant feeling. This is why haptics plays an important role in interior design, not only for the avoidance of unpleasant sensations, but rather as a deliberately deployed means of ensuring well-being at home or in a property.

The trade event is to raise architects', interior designers' and trade dealers' awareness of this subject matter, while involving the know-how of diverse partners, and to offer (product) solution potentials within the scope of the event.

The digital control via smart tools offers an extra element of comfort in addition to the mechanical operation. With just a flick of the wrist, dials control the exact amount of water and the water temperature; display switches control the activation of the water supply and the exzenter, the second providing a selection of comfort functions for automatic bath filling and for the scenarios.


With this, Dornbracht is again underscoring its innovation leadership in the industry. At the same time, the Hannover Messe is a good opportunity for the manufacturer and developer of high-quality fittings and technologies for bathrooms and kitchens to enter into dialogue with visitors to the fair. The contact to young engineers, for example, plays an important role for both the company and the Dornbracht Group. As a long-year partner of the "Sachen machen" initiative from the VDI, Dornbracht drives the exchange of professional experience with research and the industry and sparks enthusiasm for

The company with headquarters in Iserlohn offers visitors to the Hannover Messe the opportunity to get informed about training and careers and to initiate direct contact: Every day throughout the entire trade fair, employees will be available to provide advice and information at the stand. On April 7 and 8, 2014, Dornbracht HR experts will provide support for the VDI career advisory services at the joint stand. Students interested can also register at the VDI Counter for the Speed Recruiting Talks (daily, 11.00 a.m., joint stand of the VDI), in which Dornbracht will, of course, also be participating.

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 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 the Dornbracht Tara fitting series, offer the highest in quality and style as well.


Tara is the contemporary interpretation of an icon of design. Chipperfield selected its puristically subtle language of form as a means of introducing elegant understatement to the room design, breaking with the historical luxury of the edifice. The fittings' classically timeless design fits in perfectly with the light Carrara marble of which washbasins, bathtubs, floors and walls are made. A rain shower recessed into the ceiling rounds out the exclusive ambience 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.

Dornbracht 2nd in ranking of top 50 Germany luxury companies

Institute for Luxury, INLUX, has ranked the Dornbracht brand at second place in its annual ranking of the top 50 German luxury companies, listed in its industry magazine, Luxury Business Report. Dornbracht convinced the experts on the advisory panel on all six criteria on which the ranking is based: exclusivity, size, internationality, international awareness, Internet presence and sustainability. The long-term cultural commitment under the aegis of Culture Projects played a decisive role in the ranking as well.


The magazine provided its reasoning for the outstanding ranking awarded to Dornbracht: ‘Here, the Dornbracht brand shows how to do it right – and that it is possible for a family-owned company to succeed internationally and achieve recognition as an innovation leader. (...) This, along with a transparent information policy, 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? Achieving second-place based on these and other questions, and on the six ranking criteria, left Dornbracht well-positioned in comparison with brands across all sectors considered, but also leading the field in the category of Interior Design and Decoration.

Along with Dornbracht, the luxury ranking listed 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.

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.

Exhibition tip: Rosemarie Trockel, 'A Cosmos'

From 13 February through 7 April 2013, the Serpentine Gallery in London presents an exhibition 'Rosemarie Trockel: A Cosmos'. The retrospective of this renowned German artist is an artistic-scientific approach to the world, and a reflection of Rosemarie Trockel's own personal 'cosmos'. The show places Trockel's works in a context with illustrations, samples and patterns drawn from zoology and botany, along with select works by fellow artists. Previously, 'A Cosmos' was presented at the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid and at the New Museum in New York.


Dornbracht is sponsoring this exhibition as part of the Dornbracht Sponsorships. In 1998, Dornbracht provided support for Trockel's contribution to the German Pavilion at the 48th Venice Biennale. In 1998 she developed her video 'Es war Nacht, es war kalt und wir hatten viel getrunken' for Dornbracht's Statements series. Most recently, Dornbracht sponsored her work, entitled 'Ten attempts for one sculpture', which Trockel produced for dOCUMENTA (13) in summer 2012 in Kassel.

Creative design from the Goethe Institute in Prague

The exhibition "Indoors and outdoors. Creative interventions in the Goethe Institute in Prague" opens on 22nd November 2012. In the course of this project, five German artists have expressed their creativity in five areas of the institute building that are open to the public. The works have come into being as a creative response to the architecture of the Art Nouveau building (1905) and to the urban and social environment. The curator of this extraordinary project is Prof. Dr. Stephan Berg, the Director of the Kunstmuseum fine arts museum in Bonn.


The Goethe Institute has always been a meeting place for the young creative elite from the Czech Republic and a shop window for contemporary German art. The current project expresses the Institute's increasing desire to involve the public in what goes on there. In the next three years, the works will be a regular feature in the rooms of the Institute. An exhibition catalogue has been produced to mark the opening of the exhibition. Dornbracht's sponsorship of this project is just part of its diverse cultural commitment.

ONE ON ONE exhibition

The ONE ON ONE exhibition (from 18th November 2012 to 20th January 2013 in Berlin) creates a confrontational one-on-one situation. International artists conceive works and spaces specifically for the exhibition, that are intended to be perceived by one visitor at a time. In opposition to the imposing museum architecture with its spacious exhibition halls, visitors make their way through individual, self-contained spaces, where they are alone with the works.


ONE ON ONE is being held in the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, a place where contemporary art is produced and presented with a view to promoting discourse. Dornbracht has been working together with the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin since 2000 and most recently sponsored exhibitions such as "Into me/ Out of me", in collaboration with MoMA PS1 New York and KW Berlin.

Dornbracht at Designers' Saturday 2012

The fourteenth edition of Designers’ Saturday takes place on 3rd and 4th November 2012 in Langenthal and this time the motto is: «Design is a statement». This biennial event is a focal point for the Swiss design scene and a place for the international architecture and design industry to meet up and enjoy the exceptional presentations and exciting concepts being staged there.


"Connected Comfort – Home Automation for the Senses" is the title Dornbracht has given to their visionary presentation of a lounge-style living and bathing space. The transitions are seamless as visitors move through the installation, as if following a course. They find that their perception of the space situation changes quite automatically in keeping with the situation for each pre-programmed scenario, thanks to the automated influence of the setup parameters. What is unusual about the project is the way it presents the scenario capability of the overall ambience of a home/house by combining products and systems to make an integrated whole. The technology acts as an "enabler" for this rather special experience.

This year's winner is the temporary urban urbane 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.

Tomás Saraceno’s "Cloud Cities" at the Hamburger Bahnhof

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.
