The exhibition tour showcasing a collection of handmade German products has made its third stop in Shanghai

International exhibition tour Handmade in Germany opened its doors recently at the Up-Artsh Museum in Shanghai, focusing on high-quality German craftsmanship and the historic German tradition of work done by hand. It is the third stop for the design exhibition, comprising around 150 different German manufactories, on its tour through 15 cities.

Curated by Pascal Johanssen and Katja Kleiss of Direktorenhaus Berlin, this touring exhibition spans several years and continents. The exclusive selection of exhibits represents the value and future of premium quality production with a commitment to time and handiwork, especially against the backdrop of the current trend of mass production and globalisation.

Handmade in Germany is inspired by the idea of the 'walz' or 'journeyman years' — the journey taken by apprentices in German trades after completing their apprenticeships, similar to the 'Grand Tours' conducted by European nobility. The journeyman years are a German tradition still followed today, and the travelling craftsmen still wear traditional garb.

Exhibitors at Handmade in Germany include Dornbracht, a manufacturer of premium bathroom and kitchen fixtures and accessories, which is showcasing its Mem basin fitting in a cyprum finish, tableware brand Hering Berlin, and bicycle furniture brand Mikili Bicycle Furniture.
