General Information

The Interplay of Water and Air.

Michael Koolman continues today in Franconia what his father, Rolf Koolman, started 60 years ago in Lübeck. Rolf Koolman’s designs, together with some of the original parts created by the famous silversmith, still serve as a blueprint for the present way of working. Most famous for Kollman's work are the fine, fleeting patterns of water the aesthetical devices fling up into the air. The Koolman water features ar manufactured with remarkable precision: Each part is milled from solid brass, down to a tenth of a millimetre precise. Then the parts are brazed and doubled layer chromed up to a mirror finish. Subsequently to this complex procedure, each fully assembled piece is subjected to a trial run and solely released from the workshop after a faultless performance: The nozzles and the jet arms are adjusted and readjusted until the spray pattern shows the geometrical harmony expressed in the original designs by Rolf Koolman. All of this is done with precise handiwork skills; Michael Koolman only outsources to a nearby shop for the computer guided milling and galvanization facilities.

They're not just beautiful. They serve a purpose, too.

But the Koolman water features also have a practical function. They serve to irrigate flower beds and garden landscapes. The dynamic water pattern ensures a large area is permeated with moisture. (As with rain guns and sprinklers the range is dependent on water pressure so that deviations must be allowed for.)
