Working together with a variety of partners, academies and institutes studio BoomWehmeyer explores different perspectives around society, culture and craftsmanship. The studio work stems from an active mentality to work together on the expanding consciousness and roles of designers in today’s rapidly transforming, technological, social and cultural landscape. Many projects are grounded in research and maker-ship as core ingredient in their activities. Studio BoomWehmeyer work has been featured international in books and exhibitions, such as a solo exhibition at Future Perfect in Brooklyn, New York in 2006, the Shanghai Design Week 2010, the DesignMiami/Basel by Gallery Karena Schuessler 2012, the London Design Festival 2011 and many others.

In 2016 Judith and Gunter started exploring through thinking, making the notion of THIN SPACES. By emerging into the landscape, the natural and manmade, they seek to identify the role Thin Spaces in todays society. Thin Spaces was defined centuries ago to understand a place of spiritual nature. In today’s context we believe that society are in need of new spaces, that are neither used for work, consumption or production but to explore a sense of state.
The Thin Spaces studio work is solely documented on the new website Thin Spaces.
The website BoomWehmeyer will stay an archive on object / porcelain making.
