Heinz Brummel grew to appreciate the traditions of the craft world through his father’s work as an architect and his own experience living in a commune in France. He feels that the “craftsperson has a connection with the past and a role to respect . . . keeping [traditions] alive and passing them on.” He cites the Bauhaus as a source of personal inspiration and believes that people should learn to appreciate good design in their everyday world.
