Bernau in the Black Forest
Welcome to the Black Forest. Willkommen im Schwarzwald. Many travel to the picturesque high valley in Bernau to spend their holidays. We have the pleasure of living and working here. Gorgeous meadows and forests are right on our doorstep, as the old Black Forest farm house, where Jutta Rothe starts Raumgestalt at the turn of the millennium, is still today our company headquarter and showroom. The Black Forest turns out to be an ideal location for production. Traditionally, many skilled craftsmen work in the region. They support Jutta Rothe in the implementation of her ideas and do the production. In addition, for generations many women have earned extra money by working from home. There is no lack of competent hands for sewing and other difficult manufacturing processes.
Welcome to the Black Forest. Willkommen im Schwarzwald. Many travel to the picturesque high valley in Bernau to spend their holidays. We have the pleasure of living and working here. Gorgeous meadows and forests are right on our doorstep, because the old Black Forest farm house, where Jutta Rothe starts Raumgestalt at the turn of the millennium, is still today our company headquarter and showroom. Year after year we build up the farm house. It goes upwards. Up to the barn, we use every room and ten years later we are bursting at the seams. There is a lack of storage space. Furthermore the volume of woodwork has grown considerably. Thus we expand the company to include our own carpentry workshop and warehouse. At the beginning, the team only has two employees, today there are 13 helpful spirits who buzz around on three floors, who organize, pack and ship. Together with three carpenters they form the “Family” of Jutta Rothe.

Happy employees make customers happy and vice versa. Working together with different people is fun every day anew.
Working with beautiful wood products is a great pleasure. Our materials are so diverse and exciting. We constantly develop our products and grow beyond ourselves.
Feeling free, being creative and woking my own hours in my own rhythm are the best things about working at Raumgestalt. I have my own little workshop here, a place I call home.
Working at Raumgestalt is like a surprise egg: The team is the chocolate and every day a new surprise. I’ve only been with Raumgestalt since this year but it already feels like forever.
Mastering a new level of Tetris every day. The right mix of adrenaline and fun. A workplace that supports and welcomes strong women.
‘m not there when our customers open the package, but I imagine it and do everything so that they’ll have great joy, with every package I pack.

It’s just beautiful to be part of this unbeatable team and to work in this very beautiful house. The working hours are flexible and I think that’s just great.
Wood is my passion, the Black Forest my home. Why leave when everything fits and life is beautiful? Thank you for so many years together.
The story of Raumgestalt begins with Jutta Rothe: She is the founder and to this day the heart and creative mind of the design manufactory. At the beginning of the 90s she acquires a 300 year old Black Forest farm house and decides to follow her creative tendencies there from now on and turn her passion for interior design into a profession. The starting capital are her clear style values and a head full of ideas. Jutta Rothe is a passionate minimalist and dreams of furnishing ideas that look as simple and perfect as a pebble or a round loaf of bread. In addition, pieces of furniture are not disposable items for her. She wants to create pieces for life whose style is not based on the short-lived lifestyle trends, but is timeless.
