mass:werk =>  Maßwerk ... German for tracery

Site design and layout unchanged as of 1999 — Sorry.


In early 1999 started to publish works in the domains of graphical design and internet applications under the then unique name "mass:werk". In the mean time a whole bunch of people in german speaking countries (namely of the field of architectural design and interior design) have chosen to adopt the same name in slightly derivative spelling. We apologize for our fellow competitors' lack of creativity and missing sense for identity.
Similar applies to various "masswerk" internet domains (be it top level or second level domains) that have flourished since. Please mind that only <> points to the original mass:werk – media environments site.
