Hans-Christian Bauer has unleashed his sense of good design and ever-lasting handmade quality that in Kählers Hammershøi series, where he has brought the legacy of the old Kähler artist Svend Hammershøi into the new millennium with great authenticity.
The series is inspired by Svend Hammershøi’s original works, where the distinctive grooves contrast with a round design. Svend Hammershøi worked for Kähler from 1893 and embarked on a groundbreaking journey into art and design history. And Hans-Christian Bauer has designed the entire Kähler Hammershøi series with great respect for Kähler’s artistic legacy, design history and handmade design traditions.
