Tecta

Who we are

Flying Furniture

Never before has tradition been as valuable as it is today. Tecta is synonymous for the Bauhaus movement – but with a forward-thinking approach.

Lauenförde lies along the undulating banks of the river Weser. For over 40 years avant-garde designers have flocked to the town with a population of 3,000: be it British architects Peter and Alison Smithson, Mies van der Rohe’s architect, Sergius Ruegenberg, Jean Prouvé, designer Stefan Wewerka or the great Bauhaus thinkers such as the Gropius family.

Today run by Axel Bruchhäuser and his nephew Christian Drescher, Tecta’s mission and responsibility is to preserve and review the best ideas and designs of modernism as created by the Bauhaus movement in Weimar or Dessau. In addition, we are driven by the desire to think forward, enhance and adapt them.

Once you have identified and understood a problem, you can solve and develop it further – that’s evolution. We find new approaches in innovative materials and techniques, for example. Trends are now interchangeable, while cycles are becoming shorter and shorter. We believe that constantly replacing products is unecological and uneconomical. Our mission is to lengthen the lifespan of good designs, both from a social and ecological point of view.

One answer to this: Think forward! With a keen instinct Tecta found architects and designers who were willing to further develop furniture in the spirit of the Bauhaus movement. Each single one of our designs stands for a central concept: It is never too early or too late for timeless designs – they seem to last forever.
