Kalmar Werkstätten is an extension not only of Austrian culture and modernist expression, but also a very personal history: For 130 years Kalmar has been a place of time-honored artisanship and progressive experimentation. Shortly after Julius August Kalmar founded the company in 1881, he presented custom cast-bronze works at Gewerbeausstellung Wien that immediately won acclaim for their forward-looking perspective and meticulous construction. And in Kalmar's next generation, Julius Theodor Kalmar aligned the company with the groundbreaking Austrian Werkbund movement.
Today Roberts helms Kalmar Werkstätten singularly, conceiving new designs that make reference to Kalmar's rich past while anticipating the social and cultural trends that will shape future interiors. He also champions our philosophy of revering materials: Whether common or opulent, every material serves a unique purpose and conveys special emotional meaning. Roberts chooses materials for both function and character, and our master craftsmen handle those selections with intense care.
