Johann Baptist Stilmaier was very known – beyond München’s city boarders – as an artist
in the 19th century.
His achievements inspired the city fathers to name a square at the heart of München after him. And we ourselves were enthused by his life and arts.
This makes our model STIGLMAIER an homage to the art of the past, the present and the future in general and to the competence in style in particular.
Ebony and Ivory, a pairing which even has its own song – that‘s how valuable the wood from the Diospyros tree, from which ebony is harvested, is. As far back as ancient Egypt the wood, which mainly came from East India or Africa and is very dense (making it more durable), has been treated with reverence.
Although we only use small quantities of ebony obtained from furniture manufacturers unable to use it due to the size, we take care that it is all procured in areas where the trees are not endangered.
