He understands his craft and practises it there where he also lives. Alexander Dür is a master fitter and artist. He lives in a house with a history of three centuries together with his wife and three lively boys. Formerly used as a bathhouse, then a holiday home, a tailor’s shop and finally an inn, the family man has been working on and modifying it for years. He inherited the house and high-level of craftsmanship from his grandfather who had converted the timber building into a high-quality residential property.
The extent to which he values genuine craftsmanship made to last is visible everywhere. It permeates the whole of the house right down to the rugs. The handwoven characterful Olbia Karibu represents the ideal complement to the vibrant structures of the walls and floors of the house. Dür fashions his works of art to be as unique as his house: „I particularly want to appeal to individualists who place value on exceptional design, tough materials and first-rate workmanship.”
