Fire, Water, Wood - Elemental Surface Design

Stefan Knopp and Bernhard Heinloth show live how wooden surfaces can be designed with extraordinary means.

Wood is more than a raw material. Each piece carries stories within it. A good craftsman recognises the life story of a tree and brings it to light through creative intervention in such a way that it can still be read in furniture. Stefan Knopp and the manufacturer Schotten & Hansen have developed special methods over decades to let the wood speak for itself. At two events in Salzburg and Vienna, they will demonstrate live how the elements of water and fire bring the stories in wood to life.

The Light - Event for the 30th anniversary of the company

As special guests, Stefan Knopp and Bernhard Heinloth will enrich the anniversary evening with a live performance on 28 September from 5 p.m. in the Salzburg showroom "Das Licht - light architecture and design at its best".
