Having spent his childhood in rural Northern Italy, Georg Mühlmann developed a close connection to the natural materials around him. His family owned a forest in the small village of Innichen, South Tyrol, and it was there that he developed his love for wood as a material – something that steers his work to this day.
Mühlmann could be described as an expert carver, craftsman, sculptor, carpenter, manufacturer or furniture designer. But his philosophy always remains the same – everything he creates must be sustainable, crafted with local materials and be of the highest quality in order to stand the test of time.
Georg Mühlmann works alongside his wife Alexandra from their studio, which is high in the mountains of Jenesien, overlooking the city of Bolzano in South Tyrol.
The building, designed by architect Luigi Scolari, incorporates a design workshop and exhibition space. Here, the team have a strong network of local material producers and suppliers, allowing them to create made-to-order furniture pieces and bespoke commissions directly from the remote workshop.
