We create models and moulds, and cast sculptures of all kinds. Drafts can be scaled up or down, and we’ll advise you on the best way of obtaining the result you have in mind. If required, we’ll also organise the transportation and installation of the finished product. We consult with you closely every
step of the way, taking full account of your specifications and ideas. Patinas are our speciality and years of experience in the field enable us to offer a wide range of patination options.
With the benefit of large premises and modern equipment, we are able to cast pieces of more or less any size. We also offer a cleaning, repair and restoration service for existing sculptures. Special requests, unusual projects and experiments of all kinds are right up our street. We want the end result to correspond as closely as possible to the artist’s vision, and that is a process, which sometimes takes time, especially when we sit down with you to develop ideas together.
Not every artist comes to us with a clear understanding of all the possibilities inherent in a material like bronze. Others are already familiar with its potential and consciously want to try out new things, to which we say: “with pleasure!” It is possible, on arrangement, for works to be created on site so that the mould can be taken straight away. Alternatively, though, we will of course come to your studio to make a mould of your work there.

Before we arrived in 2013, the listed building which now houses the Knaak sculpture casting foundry had been empty for almost 20 years. It was built in 1933 as an electricity substation for the Oberschöneweide district, and was the final element of a three-phase power station that had been erected on the site in 1895. The power station represented a huge technological breakthrough and attracted significant international attention.
The substation was the last building to be designed by Hans Heinrich Müller, who was an icon of industrial architecture. Today, 80 years later, we are making full use of its ample 1,200 square metres and enjoying being part of the mood of energy, optimism and change currently gripping the Schöneweide area of Berlin.
