Rolf MürnerName: Rolf Muerner
Date of Birth: 24.01.1966
Place of Birth: Reichenbach im Kandertal
Marital Status: Married, no children
Quality: I always attach the utmost importance to quality. As well, I set great value on using the best materials, if possible from regional production, and processing them with solid expertise.
Individuality: My second great concern regards personal consultation. Every customer is supposed to be served according to their wishes. They are supposed to be overwhelmed by both taste and looks.
Innovation: To constantly progress without loosing one's roots and to be looking for new creations or, as well, put existing ones into new forms.
Vision: I always want to keep my curiosity and be open for my environment, including all its influences such as zeitgeist, odors, tastes and fellow men. I want to bring the passion for my profession into the world and get as many people as possible interested in the daily creativity and imagination that is involved in my work.
