The Technorama Museum in Winterthur / Switzerland is world-famous for the representation of physical phenomena. There are now numerous plasma objects by Bernd Weinmayer in the Light department. In 2018, the world's largest plasma globe with a volume of 500 liters was produced, the light effect of which can also be manipulated by the visitor. In a special mirror exhibition in 2019, the existing "jellyfish aquarium" in the endless mirror room was literally multiplied.
Sensational museum - a must for young and old!
With the life-size circulatory sculpture "Inside", Bernd Weinmayer was part of a installation by the French artist Daniel Firman, which was presented at the "Le Voyage a Nantes" art weeks from July to August 2018 at the Nantes Opera House. The sculpture was suspended 5 meters above the auditorium and was supported by a video music composition. With a working time of almost 3 months, the “Inside” project is one of the most time-intensive creative works of Bernd Weinmayer.

It's finally done - after 2 years of reconstruction we can carry out our old ‘Schneiderhof’ a perfect utilization concept. Since October 2015, the company ‘Wahre Lebenswerte’ presents 500m² living and storage space future-oriented and sustainable products. For the 5-hectare outdoor area is a permaculture farming concept in planning. In the appendix of photos of the elaborate renovation work with the very satisfactory final result - thanks to the many helping hands!!!
Our farmer house utilization is complemented by the flameworkshop of Patrik Winkler, who developed and perfected in close cooperation with Weinmayer on 150m² new product niches and techniques in the field of lamp glass. Patrik Winkler comes from the immediate neighborhood and is a visiting guest already since kindergarten age. Meanwhile Patrik is one of the most talented glassblower in Austria. He has perfected his ‘pixel art’ to an incredible precision.
There is another new partnership with our friend Gerhard Hochmuth. The professional lighting designer and a trained glassblower Gerhard developed in collaboration with Bernd the ‘Pangea Lamps’, which can be offered as exclusive small series now.
