Holmegaard Værk is a new hot spot for art-craftsmanship and tradition. At this place, iconic glass items were conceived, shaped and born. The brand new museum capturing the essence of a long Danish history of glass, ceramic and design. Since 2008 Holmegaard Glassworks closed down. The works was abounded and left cold and quit. Now, life is back!
The new hot spot raise Danish design tradition to a level where it has not been since the 1950s and 1960s. The visitors are invited into a world of tradition, art-craftsmanship and beautiful visions. This museum takes everyone back to the artists ‘drawing board, where ingenious ideas became beautiful lines. As visitor you learn about a workplace, where a son follows in his father’s footsteps and were hard labour, stubbornness and curiosity pay off.
Holmegaard Works is a story about the past as inspiration for the future.
In a very pleasant collaboration with the internal designers and technical crew of Holmegaard, Bruns was able to realize this design&build project.
At the end of the walkway, the visitor enters a large room where all Holmegaard’s ceramics and glass design is displayed on a very impressive display table over 34 metres long. This showcase table was truly a masterpiece in the project. It demanded the full attention of Bruns’ engineering and craftsmanship to make this robust steel display cabinet table with an equally long light grid above it so sleek that no irregular line is visible. The result is a monumental arrangement that makes all the design objects stand out beautifully.
In addition to the walking route and huge display cabinet table, gigantic colourful graphic panels have been placed in various places in the factory as a context. There is also a postcard wall in which hundreds of cards about historical items in Holmegaard and surroundings can be seen.
The pleasant cooperation has resulted in a high-quality project with which the customer is very satisfied.
