Handcrafting process: The small artisan company "LumberPrint" handcrafts in their workshop in Essen, Germany, our fine art photography with direct printing on solid genuine antique wood from old buildings across Europe. We turn this upcycled wood with our photo art into exclusive wood oat racks thanks to the handcrafted hooks from the Retro series.
History of wood: The upcycled wood comes from Kielce, Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship (Holy Cross Province) in the southeast of Poland. The floorboards come from two buildings, a residential one and a stable, built around 1920 to 1945. The photo shows a house that was common at that time. The wood boards were in use for about 100 years.
CAFÉ MOSKAU on Karl-Marx-Allee in Berlin was one of the seven national restaurants in the capital of the GDR. Planned by the architects Josef Kaiser and Horst Bauer, it opened in 1964. A copy of Sputnik was installed on the roof before the opening in its original size - a present from the then Ambassador of the USSR. The name of Russia's capital on its roof - MOSKAU (in German) and МОСКВА (in Russian) - was created by the graphic designer Klaus Wittkugel. The photograph was exhibited during 13 personal photographic exhibitions "Berlin — the City of Change" within the framework of the Year of Germany in Russia. Documentary photography of Berlin.
