Paper Art Award – Hahnemühle encourages contemporary paper art  (Company news)

The new Paper Art Award is presented for outstanding positions in contemporary paper art. With this award, Hahnemühle and its partners d’mage, Canon, and paper positions berlin pay tribute to paper as a material in the visual arts. Together, the partners are also opening the world’s first paper art museum, Haus des Papiers, in Berlin. The aim: to promote the value and significance of paper art.

Hahnemühle, d’mage and Canon have been cooperating and committed to sculptural paper art since 2017. As a result, the summer ateliers Paper Residency ! under the direction of d’mage have evolved. Each year, four scholarship holders are given the opportunity to work freely and extensively with paper without cost pressure. The concept allows a playful sculptural and/or three-dimensional processing of, among others, large-format, and fine art prints. Within this framework, many creative and unique paper artworks have already been created. A few selected ones were shown for the first time at the paper positions berlin in September 2020 and met with great enthusiasm. Inspired by the artworks and reactions, the concept of the joint award and paper art museum was formed.

Paper Art Award
The Paper Art Award is a new award for outstanding sculptural visual paper art. With an amount of 36,000€, it is the most highly endowed paper art award focusing on paper as a material. It will be awarded for the first time at the art fair paper positions berlin on 10.06.2021. Thereafter, up to three first-class artists will be honoured with this prize each year. There are no age, residence or origin restrictions for the participating artists. However, the artworks must meet one specific criterion: The artwork must be sculptural or three-dimensional paper art consisting of artistically processed or handled paper (drawings, paintings, or prints).

A highly competent jury consisting of gallery owners and artists, as well as guest judges from d’mage, Canon and Hahnemühle will select the winners. In addition to meeting the criterion, artistic quality, independence, innovative practice, potential and possibilities for further artistic development are also included in the evaluation.

The Haus des Papiers (House of Paper)

The Haus des Papiers (House of Paper) is the world’s first museum of sculptural paper art. Some of the exhibited works are Paper Art Award winners and purchased for the museum’s collection. Another part are loans from befriended artists and galleries. Among them are Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili, Burcak Bingöl, Astrid Busch, Thea Djordjadze, Aleksandra Domanovic, Lars Eidinger, Goekhan Erdogan, Christiane Feser, Andrea Grützner, Leiko Ikemura, Ismene, Lindsey Landfried, Alex Lebus, Guy Lougashi, Ulrike Mohr, Jana Schumacher and Rosemarie Trockel.

d’mage, Canon and Hahnemühle see the museum as a European centre for paper expertise, paper art and printing technologies. It is to become part of a large network. The House of Paper will open with a vernissage on May 22, 2021. It can be found at Seydelstraße 30, in 10177 Berlin.

“Hahnemühle paper inspires artists all over the world. We are now pooling our expertise as a manufacturer of the finest media with two strong partners.

Great success – Hahnemühle's CAA digital Creative Days  (Company news)

Lots of spectators on Sunday
The first three-day CAA digital Creative Days, which Hahnemühle organised at the end of January were a complete success. For the first time, this virtual event was hosted together with the partners Schmincke and da Vinci as the Creativeworld in Frankfurt could not take place. The colourful and varied Hahnemühle program attracted many interested parties. The product and brand updates were recorded in the Enstyle Studios, professionally accompanied and streamed live in 4K quality on the Hahnemühle YouTube channel. All recordings were produced in English and uploaded directly, so international customers could also access all news promptly, regardless of time differences. Despite the weekend, many national and international customers did not miss the welcome note from the CEOs of da Vinci, Schmincke and Hahnemühle.

Moderator Dany Michalski hosted the live sessions
Throughout all live sessions like the keynote “Recap & Outlook 2020/2021” by Jan Wölfle, CEO of the Hahnemühle Group, as well as the global product launches for the Natural Line and FineNotes, the lively and eloquent presenter Dany Michalski hosted the program.

With the global launch of the Natural Line, Hahnemühle revealed the secret of its latest addition to the range of artist papers. Since 2008, with the introduction of the mixed media paper made from Bamboo, the company has been focusing more and more on fast-growing and sustainable raw materials. With the new Agave Watercolor and Hemp Sketch papers, Hahnemühle is consistently focusing on further resource-saving papers in keeping with the zeitgeist of environmental protection. The new Hahnemühle Natural Line product family includes all papers made from environmentally friendly fibers.

In addition, product manager Rana Ardal-Altun and marketing director Ann Kristin Nohlen announced a range extension to a very successful product launch last year. Toned watercolor books, which are very popular with urban sketchers, are now available in three new formats. The grey and beige toned papers with a classic watercolor structure are now available in A5, A4 and in the trendy square format 20 x 20 cm.

With the international launch of FineNotes by Hahnemühle, the brand is expanding its paper expertise into the field of writing culture. The collection for stylish writing includes noble, leather-bound notebooks with premium writing paper with watermarks as well as fine writing implements with fine engravings or fine embossing – for a tactile handwriting experience in our digital age! The global launch of the high-quality stationery products received excellent feedback.

There will be some innovations in the internationally established Hahnemühle calendar competition. The calendar will no longer be produced as an offset printing process, it will change to digital printing. This is an important step with regards to environmental protection. Due to the change in printing processes less waste will be generated, energy is saved and emissions will be reduced. Printing plates will no longer be required, the use of chemicals will be reduced and on-demand printing will minimise any excess.
For the first time the calendar will be printed on specially developed Hahnemühle FineArt paper. This makes the calendar even more valuable as a collector’s item. In addition to the technical news, the eagerly awaited topic of the 2022 competition ‘Joy & Happiness’ has been announced in the event “Calendar Painting Competition – What’s happening next?“.

Live hands-on sessions by Gris030 and clips by international artists such as rabi_rabi and Césc Farre, who showed the new papers in action, made end-user hearts beat faster. The program was rounded off with Q&A sessions with the Hahnemühle team in various languages ​​and personal Zoom meetings with dealers, influencers and press contacts.

Positive summary of the three-day event
‘The first virtual CAA digital Creative Days were very exciting for all of us in the run-up and during implementation. The feedback we received and the continuously increasing number of views of the content produced demonstrates to us that this was the right way to inform our customers on business updates during this challenging time.
Despite the pandemic and the lockdown in many countries, we could effectively communicate our new product launches globally. It goes without saying that a virtual trade fair can not replace personal contact with our business partners. Product launches are also much more difficult when the mere view of a product has to be convincing and the feel, especially with analog products like our papers, is missing. Nevertheless, virtual events are a good alternative, ”said Jan Wölfle, CEO of the Hahnemühle Group, in summary.

But before that happens, the 12 winning images will be chosen and announced in November. The winners are guaranteed the prestige of being represented in the art calendar of the world-renowned Hahnemühle brand. In addition to 10 printed calendars, they will receive an exclusive creative package from all Creative Art Alliance partners consisting of valuable artist papers from Hahnemühle, paints from Schmincke and brushes from da Vinci to the value of EUROS 350.

TIPA World Award 2020: Hahnemühle Natural Line wins 'Best Inkjet Photo Paper'  (Company news)

Hahnemühle is delighted that this year not only one FineArt inkjet paper from its collection has won a TIPA World Award, but three! With the Hahnemühle Natural Line and the paper grades Hahnemühle Bamboo, Hahnemühle Hemp and Hahnemühle Agave the inventor of Digitial FineArt Inkjet papers has once again succeeded in convincing the Technical Press Imaging Association – in short: TIPA. All three papers of the Hahnemühle Natural Line are awarded the TIPA World Award 2020 in the category “Best Inkjet Photo Paper“.

The editors and publishers of 30 photo and imaging magazines from all over the world are excited about the papers from Hahnemühle’s Natural Line:
“The Hahnemühle Natural Line appeals in both their sustainable manufacture and their unique surface characteristics. The cellulose in these papers is supplied by raw materials that require minimal maintenance and do not need any pesticides. Each 290 GSM paper has a unique look and feel. Bamboo is a warm tone paper with a lightly textured surface; Hemp is a bright white matt paper with a slight textural surface; and Agave has a more textural surface with a bright white base.”

The Natural Line has a special place in the Hahnemühle Digital FineArt Collection. It focuses on FineArt inkjet papers made from unique raw materials: bamboo, hemp and agave. The plants that provide the cellulose require minimal maintenance, grow quickly and don’t need any pesticides. Their rapid growth means that more cellulose can be produced on the same cropland than with other raw materials, and they also require much less water, helping to save valuable resources and protect the environment. The new FineArt inkjet papers from the Natural Line are the next step in our continuous pursuit of sustainability and careful use of our resources. The Natural Line complements the Digital FineArt Collection with special fine art inkjet papers made from unique raw materials and supports under the Green Rooster initiative environmental projects on regional and international level.

Additionally, all three paper grades do not require optical brighteners, are acid and lignin free and completely vegan – like all our Digital FineArt Collection papers.

Clean water, natural fibres, first-rate expertise in paper production and absolute commitment to the production site in Germany have been the foundation of Hahnemühle’s success for more than 435 years. Hahnemühle treats its natural environment with respect and is socially responsible – after all, it wouldn’t be able to create high-quality paper without this kind of uncompromising dedication. Hahnemühle is proud of all it has achieved so far and is constantly working to improve sustainability and conserve resources. Sustainability plays a key role at its production site as Hahnemühle is located close to a nature reserve.Thus, environmentally friendly paper production is a high priority. A careful and responsible use of valuable resources such as water, fibres and energy is a matter of course.

The Hahnemühle Natural Line papers are therefore the result of Hahnemühle’s willingness to innovate, its commitment to sustainability and its sense of responsibility.

All three sustainable premium inkjet papers of the Hahnemühle Natural Line celebrated their worldwide premiere at the Photo Plus Expo in New York in autumn 2019. The world innovation was to make its debut in Germany at photokina 2020 this year to demonstrate that perfect FineArt printing can be taken to a new level with sustainable papers. Unfortunately, this is being postponed unitl the new date in 2020. The outstanding artist papers from the Hahnemühle Digital FineArt Collection are and will remain unique in the market.

Hahnemühle Delivers Consumables for New COVID-19 Cartridge-Based Test System  (Company news)

The new high-volume COVID-19 cartridge-based test system is capable of rapidly detecting multiple virus infections.

Within one hour, the system is providing positive or negative results for COVID-19, as well as more than 20 other viruses. Large quantities of patients can be tested through this industrial-grade test system, which is currently being deployed in the market via several medical hardware system providers. In this context, authorities classified Hahnemühle in March 2020 as a mission critical (systemrelevant) production facility to ensure continued production and supply chain peace of mind during this difficult period in the fight against COVID-19.

“Hahnemühle has been innovating in the area of life sciences since 1883, and is also known as one of the inventors of pure filtration and analytical systems. We provide these solutions to companies within the healthcare sector, hospitals, and laboratories. We are proud to be a contributor to the global fight against COVID-19”, says Jan Wölfle, President and CEO of Hahnemühle FineArt Group.

This high-volume cartridge-based test system for coronavirus consists of a one-time use cartridge, including agents and substrates from Hahnemühle, plus a computer based analytical system from various hardware vendors. Samples are multiplied within the one-time use cartridge and results are delivered within one hour. The system can detect evidence of more than 20 viruses within the sample and was upgraded and approved in March 2020 to also detect COVID-19. Suspected cases can be tested faster, in higher volumes, isolated and, if needed, treated much more efficiently and with more scalability than in the past.

“Fast testing to detect COVID-19 is essential in the fight to contain and mitigate the coronavirus outbreak. Many manufacturers are increasing their capacity as fast as possible and are requesting these cartridge-based consumables in high volumes from us. To that end, we are deploying additional resources and developing, in tandem with our customers, additional solutions to help fight this global pandemic. By the end of this year, we will increase our monthly capacity to provide consumables for up to at least 20 million COVID-19 tests per month. Special procedures have already been put in place since January to ensure that all guidelines from authorities are proactively followed globally. Our Production and Finishing Departments are in rotating 3-shift schedules, while the Sales and Administration Departments are working in a similar shift schedule both on- and off-site to ensure mission critical business continuity”.

Hahnemühle Natural Line at Gian Paolo Barbieri  (Company news)

Lately, our Natural Line Papers were presented for the very first time at an exclusive launch event with ImageConsult in Italy. Close to one hundred print studios and photographers, as well as press gathered to learn about the special features of our sustainable papers, at no other place but Gian Paolo Barbieri’s studio in Milan.

At this iconic location, Digital FineArt Product Manager, Andrea Sippel gave an in-depth presentation about our company’s history, the Natural Line papers and the story behind their development. The first part covered the history of Hahnemühle and its beginnings in 1584. She further explained why the paper mill is located near a nature reserve and how the paper production even started. The second part of the presentation was fully dedicated to our Natural Line papers and Green Rooster initiative. Our Export Area Sales Manager for Southern Europe and Latin America, Luciana Leite, was on site, too. Both described in detail how Hahnemühle’s sustainability efforts are anchored deeply in the company and why a respectful attitude towards the environment is part of our success.

On top of this, ImageConsult organized an exclusive test printing with various photographers and print studios from all over Italy. Numerous works of these Italian photographers were displayed to show our latest paper invention in usage. Via a central portal interested photographers could register, receive a DIN A3 set of Natural Line papers and send it back printed. The result was a diverse, colourful and varied portfolio on paper made from Bamboo, Hemp or Agave. One of the highlights at the launch event. The reactions were overwhelming – papers made from sustainable raw materials that are true FineArt inkjet papers and do something good at the same time.

The Natural Line has a special place within the Hahnemühle Digital FineArt Collection. It focuses on FineArt inkjet papers made from exceptional raw materials – Bamboo, Hemp and Agave. The undemanding plants from which the required pulp is obtained are fast-growing and do not require pesticides. Due to their fast growth, they provide more pulp than other raw materials on the same area while requiring significantly less water. This saves valuable resources and protects the environment.

In addition to this successful launch event with ImageConsult, Andrea Sippel and Luciana Leite visited other Hahnemühle partners and certified studios in Italy. One of the stops was the Hahnemühle Certified Studio NEWLAB in Brescia. An exclusive Hahnemühle Natural Line Event was also held there.

The artist can work right on the block or on a cut off sheet of paper – the paper remains smooth anyway. “I tested different techniques, first of all layer painting – and partly with a lot of water, sand and varnish. I scratched, sanded and washed… and was really happy.” says painter Conny Niehoff.

Picture: Stephan Freist, Barbara Knipper (Hahnemühle), Ute Weingarten (Artpress), Bettina Scheerbarth (Hahnemühle), Stephan Fink (Fink&Fuchs PR), Michael Siekiera (Hahnemühle), Ulrich Nies (DPRG-President)

At the end of October the prize-giving ceremony and gala occasion for the "Deutscher PR Preis 2013" (International German PR Award) took place in Wiesbaden, Germany. We are one of the happy award winners in the category "small and medium sized enterprises". We are absolutely delighted to receive an award for our intensive work and ideas, which we developed together with external parties.

What did we do to receive this highly regarded award?
In recent years we have been strongly engaged in art projects such as sponsoring of artists and exhibitions, our international painting competition, art and photo activities around paper in laboratories and the very successful art platform Upon Paper. We have set-up our new communication strategy and started our expansion globally.
Due to our social media engagements we've formed an intensive dialogue with customers and fans of our products, which brought us new creative impulses and ideas. We have developed a digital strategy which increased our market reach significantly due to social media and especially new content e.g. moving images.
These activities have attracted great interest among media and bloggers. A variety of articles in new medias, supplements and business pages of national and international key medias such as Süddeutsche Zeitung, F.A.Z., Frankfurter Rundschau, Welt, Focus, Vogue, Handelsblatt, Tagesspiegel, Berliner Zeitung, Cicero and Guardian are some of the highlights in the last two years.
We could not realise all that we wanted to achieve alone, so we called on external partners. The successful cooperation with Fink & Fuchs PR, Wiesbaden, and Artpress, Berlin for selected projects has brought us significant steps further and enabled us to reach faster defined targets.
The award will not be the end of our work, it is more an incentive for the great projects we are currently working on e.g. our digital strategy and plenty more other lovely projects, which will be published in the upcoming months. Watch this space.
We would like to thank all those that have supported and enriched us with their interest, cooperation and ideas in the last year, whether artists, photographers, bloggers and journalists and of course our market partners, colleagues and all of our many customers.

Hahnemühle news for 2012 photokina  (Company news)

At the 2012 photokina, Hahnemühle will launch another paper intended for book and album printing. In cooperation with designer Michael Sontag, photographer Per Zennström will demonstrate the complete process of a fashion photography shoot at booth D017 in hall 06.1. Hahnemühle will also present the latest issue of the art magazine UPON PAPER. In addition, the fine art experts will demonstrate the variety and efficiency of precious fine art papers at part of the show ‘see me, feel me, print me'.

Hahnemühle wraps models in paper
Titled ‘No Limits - Paper makes creativity visible', Hahnemühle will show the complete process of a fashion photography shoot: from the design to the perfect fine art print. To do so, star designer Michael Sontag wraps his models in dresses made of artist paper. Sontag doesn't draw his collection, he rather works like a sculptor by draping the dresses right on the model. For the demonstrations in booth D017 in hall 06.1 he has created more than 10 dresses. A 30-minute making-of shows him creating the single copies.
During the shooting at the stand - by fashion photographer Per Zennström - the dresses are illuminated by different colours and forms, resulting in a permanently changing optical impression of the subject. The elusive moments captured by the pictures afterwards are subjected to image editing at a computer and the created pictures then will be printed in top quality. This extraordinary performance can be admired on every day of the fair.

Matt Fibre Duo for book and album print
The new ‘HARMAN Professional Inkjet by Hahnemühle Matt Fibre Duo' was specially designed for the printing of bound books and albums. It can be printed on both sides and with its grammage of 210gsm it meets the fine art paper standards. At the same time, it's thin and flexible enough to be bound. When binding books, the paper fibres always should run parallel to the back of the book cover to make turning the pages easier and avoid breakage of the spine. Therefore, the direction of the fibres is identical in all the sheets of a package and indicated on each box.

Special show in hall 2.2
In the photokina special show ‘see me, feel me, print me', all visitors are not only provided a visual impression of the variety of Hahnemühle papers but can also can feel the tactile qualities, as media samplers of the Digital FineArt Collection papers are available. Visit Hahnemuhle at the special-show booth in hall 2.2.

M-real divests the Reflex mill's Premium Paper business to Hahnemühle FineArt GmbH and...  (Company news)

... private shareholders of Hahnemühle

M-real Corporation, has agreed to divest the Reflex mill’s Premium Paper business to Walzmühle AG that is owned by Hahnemühle FineArt GmbH, the Hahnemühle management and private shareholders of Hahnemühle. The divestment includes the complete Premium Paper business and related assets as well as approximately 100 of M-real’s employees.
Premium Paper products are used in high-quality graphical end-uses, such as letterhead, brochures, books, calendars and envelopes.
The divestment is expected to be closed during 1Q 2012. The divestment would decrease M-real’s annual sales by approximately EUR 20 million and it would not have a material impact on M-real’s operative result. The divestment is not expected to have a material non-recurring result or cash flow impact taking into account the bookings made in 4Q 2011.
“We are very satisfied that the well-recognised speciality paper producer Hahnemühle takes over the Reflex Premium Paper business. Our actions to build a Business Park at Reflex by finding other producers to the site have been very successful. Thanks to our Business Park concept, more than half of the originally over 400 jobs can be saved at the mill. Key issues in the success have been excellent cooperation with the union, works council, local authorities and Metsä Tissue Corporation who is already our partner at the site. Based on this experience we have a good opportunity to implement the Business Park concept successfully also at Gohrsmühle mill,” says M-real’s CEO Mikko Helander.
After the divestment of the Premium Paper business, M-real has no operations left at the Reflex mill. The discontinuation of the carbonless paper converting was agreed in late 2011. In October 2010, M-real sold the paper machine 5 and some related assets at the Reflex site to Metsä Tissue.

Metre-by-metre art on Hahnemühle water-colour paper   (Company news)

Susanne Haun paints on the Veneto reel

Portraits, birds, flowers, skulls, mountains, fishes, angels... and all that in one picture. That's what Berlin's artist Susanne Haun currently is painting in a continuous work of art. The water-colour paper reel Veneto features a length of 10 metres long and a width of 40 centimetres. The detailed drawings are created with drawing ink and a quill while the shadows are painted - with water and brush - in watercolours. The picture with its length of several metres could be called ‘Work in Progress' as Susanne Haun keeps on working on it whenever she feels like doing so. And she reports about the progress of her work and the inspiration for the respective subjects in her blog in the World Wide Web. Just visit the blog from time to time and take a look at the ‘Online-Zeichen-Protokoll'. In mid-July, the huge picture celebrated its hump day, with five metres of the 10-metre reel being completed.

Enrique Moya González - Between photography and art print  (Company news)

He crosses borders - in both the geographic and the artistic sense: a Spaniard living in Italy and combining digital pictures with traditional painting or printing techniques. For his large-format works of art, Enrique Moya Gonzáles uses the Hahnemühle copperplate printing cardboard. And he treats every single sheet manually: he folds, stamps, draws, paints and prints. Often, the backgrounds of his pictures are photos and therefore, he applies a specially mixed coating on every sheet before imprinting it. Fingerprints on the sheets are deliberate and represent the artist's typical trademark. Afterwards, he paints his unique copies with lines or patterns. His motto: "The line is the language of art."

Hahnemühle FineArt Papers conform to newest ISTA requirements  (Company news)

"Reliable seed testing" is the title of the new Hahnemühle FineArt GmbH brochure. The brochure provides readers with information about the newest ISTA 2010 requirements regarding the use of filter papers for seed testing. The brochure also gives an overview of the wide range of seed testing papers offered by "Albet® LabScience". The paper production of Hahnemühle is orientated towards the demands made by the ISTA (International Seed Testing Association). All seed testing papers from Hahnemühle meet the requirements of the strict international guidelines. If required, customers receive a conformity certificate.
The papers have a high absorbency due to their low density which guarantees storage of sufficient moisture for the duration of the whole test. Despite the high absorbency of the paper, roots of the seedlings are not able to grow into the paper. Hahnemühle offers several paper types for the recommended ISTA methods TP, BP and PP. The range includes pleated strips, sheets or round filters as well as coloured germination papers for a better contrast. All seed testing papers are made in Germany from purest cellulose and are free of toxic substances. (Hahnemühle FineArt GmbH)
