An architectural icon en miniature -- the perfect handicraft for the upcoming Christmas holidays. Our arts-and-crafts sheets bring the Schminke house to your home at a scale of 1:100. Even 8-year-olds can do it with a little help, all you need is a little persistence and a good glue stick. On your mark, get your scissors, cut away!
More than just a bag... These bags with our neat noodle-steamer logo are not only sustainable in comparison to plastic bags, but also super posh thanks to the stylistic confidence of our graphic designer and friend Tobias Bratfisch. It can make people jealous.
You might be fighting over who gets to wipe the crockery dry. This dish towel with our neat noodle-steamer logo is not just deco for your kitchen, it may also be a perfect and sustainable gift wrap for Christmas presents, so as to avoid a pile of paper waste.
The all-rounder for your fridge: Magnet and bottle-opener combined in one, elegantly designed by our friends at the Löbau-based creative workshop Makerspace Geistesblitz. Some of you might recognize its shape. We took inspiration from the lids of the spice jars in our kitchen. Well then, cheers!
The Schminke House as stencil art. Every tile is unique!
Our favourite house and its best sides, captured by our number-one photographer Marcel Schröder. Almost too good to be mailed.
Our contribution to the Bauhaus centenary for everyone. It comes with its own app: When you look at the pictures through your smartphone or tablet, they’re virtually brought to life and go beyond the book’s two-dimensional framework. This makes it a kind of interactive art book that features 20 Modernist buildings in Saxony, foregoing specialist jargon in favour of pictures. With a personal dedication it can make the perfect Christmas present for someone dear to you.
This colourful trio, designed by our friends from MOKOST Dresden is a delight for every living room and brightens up the greyest days. Our personal recommendation to fight the winter blues. And if you don't have enough free wall space, you might just keep your favourite colour and gift the remaining two!
Three little things to indulge in, combined in a selected gourmet package:
Coffee break in the noodle steamer - roasted regionally in the Görlitzer Kaffeerösterei Büttner roasting house, makes the day even more beautiful.
Apple-pear juice - handpicked from the Schminke family’s orchards. Naturally cloudy – sunny in taste!
Apple brandy - refined to be high proof by the Sächsische Spirituosenmanufaktur Martin Wagner, without added flavouring – simply 100% Schminke House!
Hans Scharoun himself designed the “Rotalith” lamp shades to create a very unique lighting ambience in the Schminke House. With the help of an antique glass press and the expertise of the professionals at the Farbglashütte Reichenbach glass manufactory, we were able to replicate this wonderful detail and create a new production series. Our friends at the Löbau-based creative workshop Makerspace Geistesblitz quickly created the prototype for a fancy designer lamp that is a genuine eye-catcher in
Experience living in an icon of Modernism and travel through time to the Upper Lusatia of the 1930s. Enjoy an exclusive guided tour with a glass of sparkling wine, undisturbed by other visitors. During the 90 minute tour, you will learn all the details of each room in the house and listen to numerous anecdotes from the daily life of the Schminke family.
Allow our favourite photographer Marcel Schröder to capture the moment. The interaction of light and shadow during the day and the refined lighting during the evening turns the house into a unique location for your business or lifestyle portraits, or simply for a few beautiful pictures for the family album.
Literally built from sunlight during the day, at night the interior appeals through its sophisticated lighting that creates a warm and cosy orange ambience. Relish the atmosphere during a guided evening walk through the house and garden, and savour a glass of good wine while you listen to the music played on the grand piano that was built by the Löbau-based August Förster manufactory.
Come and enjoy the wonderful evening mood in the Schminke House during a guided walk and spoil yourself with culinary delights at an exclusive dinner for two. And when it’s time to go to bed, you’ll spend a very special night in a very special house, an architectural icon indeed.
