JJZimmermann Collection - How it came to be.
I discovered my passion for objects for everyday usage made of patterned molds of DUROPLAST.
The magnificient array of design pieces from the turn of the 20th century fascinate me the most.
As a decorator and designer I’am collecting all kinds of different objects made of Bakelite for my own personal need for inspiration.,
Since 1985, my wife and I scour the markets of the world for rare pieces.
Today, the collection consists of over 6000 pieces.
I showed our collection (the things designers dream of) to the Swiss public from May 4-13th, 2001 at the MUBA (Basel Trade Fair).
