Werkstatt:München is synonym of artisanal beauty and industrial romanticism founded in 1996 by Klaus Lohmeyer.
With a background in philosophy, politics and music, Klaus Lohmeyer turned to craftwork driven by his passion for raw materials such as silver and vegetable tanned leather. After having studied silversmith and goldsmith at the prestigious Staatliche Berufsfachschule für Glas und Schmuck of Kaufbeuren and becoming a master craftsman, he set up Werkstatt:München.
Born out of a necessity, Werkstatt:München blends together meaning, function and timeless elegance into finely crafted pieces. Drawing inspiration from contemporary culture, past memories and symbolism, Klaus aims to embellish people with their very own personality. His unique creative approached him to collaborate with others designers who share a similar ethos such as Ann Demeulemeester, with whom he developed exclusive jewelry collections.
Within an old foundry’s suggestive atmosphere, a skilled team works with passion and precision to create pieces that have a "soul“, as emotions are the ultimate luxury in a fully digitalized and machine-made world.
Werkstatt:München re-establishes the timeless value of precious as things to be inherited, passing on stories and traditions from generation to generation.
