Giving everyday life a golden glow

  • • Andreas is the fourth generation to run the family company
  • • He has worked on the most prestigious restoration projects in Austria
  • • With his wife he founded a new design line

In 1898, Andreas’s great-grandfather Eduard Buhr opened his gilding workshop close to Vienna’s city centre and laid the foundation for the company’s future success with significant projects in the Habsburgs’ crown lands. From the 1960s to the 1990s, Andreas’s father was a key participant in the most prestigious restoration projects in and around Vienna. Andreas grew up in this family deeply rooted in craft – he’s proud that, as a child, his cot was placed in the workshop and his toys were his parents’ tools. He now runs the business on his own, continuing to work on the restoration of objects and buildings. He and his wife Christine Dosch also founded the design label Goldlieb, for which they create extravagant objects with gold, silver or other precious metals.
