Small and beautiful: The Dissertori family, owners of the "Lebenskunst-Hotel Schwarzschmied", transformed an old guesthouse, which has been located in the center of the South Tyrolean village of Lana for more than half a millennium, into a very special boutique hotel with a lot of dedication: the 1477 Reichhalter - with eight guest rooms, café and restaurant. Authenticity, simplicity, and coziness were the focus of the careful renovation by South Tyrolean architect Zeno Bampi and interior designer Christina von Berg. Some of the furniture, such as the bedside tables or lamps in the 50s and 60s style in the rooms, was re- or up cycled, even the old doors were preserved, with the original keys. The cuisine? Delicious! Breakfast, small lunches, coffee and especially delicious homemade cakes are served in the rooms of the former mill, bakery and butcher's, of course the menu is seasonal and the ingredients come from local farms in the region.

"Schneid haben” is the German translation for "To have "guts" and to dare something new - and it is probably the best way to describe the philosophy of the Lübeck design studio. After all, this is what Julia and Niklas Jessen did six years ago, with the founding of their studio SCHNEID lighting & furniture. Since then the product designer and the trained carpenter and architect have been creating lamps, furniture, and accessories that inspire with their mix of striking forms, soft colors, and natural materials and at the same time appear both timeless and modern.
