About this product
- DescriptionText in German & English. Ernst Leitz was taking the prototype for the legendary Leica camera to be tested in North America when 'Haus Friedwart' in his hometown of Wetzlar was begun. The architect Bru Paul (1874-1968) was a sought-after designer of challenging interior designs and architect of grand upper-middle class houses and public buildings. By means of wood panelling, fittings and the design of ceilings he gives every room a special character. Details such as door handles, radiator screens and lamps remain today, as does all the furniture designed for the house. This building is therefore a unique example of Bru Paul's special art, which, through zigzag lines, twin arches and star forms, represents an early example of Art Deco.
- Author BiographyAlfred Ziffer is a Munich art historian and has frequently concerned himself with Paul's life and work.
