At the core of our institution is the archive of the Deutsche Werkbund (DWB). Founded in 1907, this group of German artists, designers, and manufacturers was one of the leading organizations pushing for a cultural utopia achieved through design and way-of-life reforms at the beginning of the 20th century.
The Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge is as an autonomous organization, aware of and stemming from this Werkbund tradition. Our goal is twofold: to preserve and document material associated with and advocated by the Werkbund, and to foster contemporary interpretation and reflection thereupon.
Office and archive is located on the first floor, second staircase.
For persons with reduced mobility, it is possible to reserve an employee parking space directly at the museum. Please send an email to: info|at|museumderdinge.de
Quality, sensitivity to materials, objectivity, functionalism and durability were the guiding principles of the movement. The Werkbund’s main purpose, in addition to promoting the modern design and production of objects and ensembles, was aesthetic education as a way to individual self-expression.
