Wittman
For more then a hundred years, Wittmann Möbelwerkstätten have been creating traditional, hand-crafted products. Founded in 1896 as a saddlery, the family business began to specialise in the production of high-quality upholstered furniture in the 1950ies. Today Heinz Hofer-Wittmann and his wife Ulrike Wittmann run the family business in the 4th generation.
The use of premier class materials, the perfect interplay of form and color in the realisation of designs created by internationally renowned designers and the application of pure craftsmanship ensure that every genuine Wittmann is irresistibly attractive both visually and in terms of physical comfort.
Genuine Handcraft
Every item of furniture factured by Wittmann is made by hand. Carpenters, fitters, upholsterers and stitchers all take part in the creation of an authentic Wittmann. The professional care and accuracy of these craftsmen and craftswomen in conjunction with continual, stringent checking procedures ensure that every genuine Wittman is a perfect item of furniture skilfully planned down to the smallest detail and processed with true precision.
A genuine Wittmann is more than simply attractive design. Every single piece of furniture is made exclusively by hand with the greatest care, fulfilling its visual promise of quality.
