About

Geebird&Bamby is a venture of Robert G. Achtel (1980) and Jens Bambauer (1981). The partnership was initiated in 2009 with the primary objective to create, manufacture and distribute "The New World" as an original visual design product. It is based on the partnership's architectural photography from California, Nevada and Florida. Achtel and Bambauer work from their studio in Wiesbaden, Germany. While "The New World" will expand, the official website and online store ensure direct availability to customers worldwide.

Our products are manufactured in cooperation with Oschatz GmbH & CO KG, one of Germany's leading image production firms, founded as a photo laboratory in 1922. The collaborative process, as well as the access to state-of-the-art machinery and materials, enables precisely aligned results throughout the limited production run of each picture.

The seemingly familiar reality of "The New World" is inspired by the magnificent body of work showcased during the post war era and the later 20th century in the fields of Photography, Architecture, Film and Design. To name just a few in no particular order:

Julius Shulman, Norman Rockwell, Pierre Koenig and the Case Study House program's architects, Paul Rudolph and the Sarasota School Of Architecture, Alfred Hitchcock, Ezra Stoller, Minoru Yamasaki, Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, Ken Adam, Saul Bass, Stephen Shore, Charles and Ray Eames, Ed Ruscha, Godfrey Reggio, Robert Adams, Eero Saarinen, John Margolies, Robert Zemeckis, Paul Thomas Anderson, Paul Rand and Wim Wenders.
