Not only accommodation, but also workshop and study facilities for artists and curators. The new look designed by the designer Harry Thaler for Museion’s studio house was conceived by the Museion Association, and was made possible by its generous backing.
The studio house, the little “cube” beside the museum, was designed by the KSV architecture firm of Berlin as part of the museum complex.
The new interior design project aims to highlight its original mission, that of offering not only accommodation, but also workshop and study facilities for artists and curators hosted by the museum. The furniture designed by Thaler for the two floors of the studio house is inspired by the idea of flexibility, but without sacrificing comfort and intimacy. The pieces of furniture designed by Thaler for the studio house are all one-off creations, made by Barth of Bressanone.
The week before the opening the designer moved into the studio house to complete the project and add a personal touch to his work, finishing many pieces himself. He also created some new pieces in situ: the house is equipped with a proper workshop in the basement, and this creative work heralds the start of a new phase for the studio house.
