Bentley Bentayga Diesel – South Tyrol, Italy

Freitag, 03. März 2017


The shooting of the new Bentayga Diesel, the first diesel in Bentley’s history has taken place in an amazing setting: Meran in the Italian Dolomites. Unique locations challenging the Bentayga, „a SUV for every kind of journey“ to show it’s particular combination of practicality, power and luxury with innovative technology.

The first stop was the famous vinery Manincor in Kaltern, the largest wine estate in South Tyrol, since 1606 a family operation with charm and personality – in legacy to the meaning of the family name itself because „Man-in-cor“ means roughly „Hand on heart“.

Then there was the Jaufenpass waiting for the Bentley Bentayga Diesel with its wonderful snowy mountain landscape on 2094 meters. Curvy roads for amazing photographs taken by Ken Schluchtmann from a flying helicopter to catch the very essence of the car performance with its refined 8-cylinder diesel engine.

The trip ended in the new luxury resort San Luis, opened just a couple of month ago at Avelengo not far from Meran. In the middle of a 40 hectares alpine park with a beautiful lake there are wooden chalets and tree-houses welcoming the guests in a minimal yet balanced and comfortable style in close relation to the breathtaking nature of the Dolomites.

A unique backdrop for a one-of-a-kind SUV!


„Norway – Architecture, Infrastructure, Landscape“ – Conference and Exhibition in Milan, Italy

Mittwoch, 22. Juni 2016

Polimi Milano

Over summer, SpazioFMG, IrisFMG gallery and showroom in Milan is hosting “Norway, Architecture, Infrastructure. Landscape. Photographs by Ken Schluchtmann”, concept by Ken Schluchtmann, curated by Luca Molinari and Alessandro Benetti in collaboration with Christiane Bürklein. A journey to Norway as a theme in keeping with the season and a unique opportunity to get to know the majestic landscapes of Norway that multi award-winning German photographer Ken Schluchtmann has immortalised, as well as the ideas of the architects behind these infrastructures and the constructions that aim to promote tourism as a means of underpinning and supporting the local economy in Norway.

Every photographic project is accompanied by a folder containing technical drawings and detailed descriptions by the architects to provide all the information needed about the project, including its actual location. The exhibition set-up underscores the idea of the journey: wooden crates with the map of Norway are used as tables for the folders and reference the itinerant nature of the National Tourist Routes.

Once more it is the image – and therefore the photographer as mediator between architect and audience – becoming the messenger of the design idea. Ken Schluchtmann shares his visual narrative of a country begging to be explored: Norway.

Fuori Salone in Milan | Lamp Collection „Malva“

Mittwoch, 14. April 2010

090602_15_31_36 produced an image serie of the new lamp collection „Malva“ for the presentation at the exhibition „Made in Berlin 2010“ during the actual design week in Milan.

ett la benn designed the lights inspired by the natural qualities of cellulose and viscose: The objects are generated by the forming of moistened sponge cloth and its subsequent hardening by air drying on a mould.

The translation of this customary material into individual design pieces through basic processes of forming and drying measures up to the highest demands in sustainability and eco friendliness: all objects are compostable.

Fuksas Summer Residence

Samstag, 19. Mai 2007


For VOGUE Magazine DIEPHOTODESIGNER.DE visited Italian Stararchitect Massimiliano Fuksas and his wife Doriana on Pantelleria Island.

Very close to Africa the Italian island is an oasis between palm trees, cacti and black lavastone. Here the couple had bought an abandoned estate consisting of eleven small stone houses in the typical island style and turned it into their private summer retreat.
