About Heiner Zimmermann

I am a metal designer and artist specializing in hot working metals. My focus is bringing hot metal work into contemporary architecture, art and culture.

Exchanging ideas with like-minded people is an important aspect in this challenge. I see educating and mentoring young people, with fresh and unconventional ideas as a way for both student and teacher to further develop their own identity and artistic language. Traditional hot worked metal is identified by distinct design styles that are still commonly seen around the world. My goal is to bring this century old profession with all of its techniques into the art of the 21st century. I believe contemporary design should include a revised use of traditional techniques and materials. In my approach to design I consider all metal processing techniques available to me, but I try to give hot working the central role in my artistic research and experimentation.

My projects are all customized for individual customers and because of their particular needs every project requires a new creative approach. Often my designs are reflections of relevant cultural, ethical, philosophical or social ideas. Once our themes are identified I figure out ways to consistently implement these ideas throughout my design. I see my work as a source of visual communication.
