Respected by Gaggenau
The luxury brand for professional-grade home appliances has launched its new initiative in support of producers and crafts people who use their skills and traditional techniques to achieve an array of exceptional products. There are four areas that the initiative will focus on: design, craftsmanship, culinary and viniculture. The initiative will see the brand identify exceptional artisans who will receive a mark of approval from the brand. As an example, Nico Zendel (pictured) is a blacksmith who produces knives from inherited and disused tools, so as to give them another life. Zendel has developed a passion for ancient craftsmanship and a single-minded determination to renew it.
