Grand Duke Alexander

These items have been approved by Catherine II, after which the firm ‘Ott and Gumbs’ filed a note of itsImperial Majesty with the proposal to furnish the room of the New Palace of Grand Duke Alexander in Tsarskoe Selo. Just Gumbs offers services as a restorer of things in X-rays of his teacher Hermitage. The Empress said yes, and in subsequent years, Gumbs became the largest supplier of Imperial and a small yard. Why is it that a mechanic? Furniture Gambs, like the works of his famous teacher Roentgen different sorts of surprises and clever arrangements, drawers concealed drawers, built-in music boxes and other things. No wonder one of the complex design bureau Roentgen Catherine gave to the Academy of Sciences as an exhibit. The first works were carried out Gambs in the tradition of X-rays, but gradually his influence was lost. One of the specialties was the use of innovations Gambs ‘eglomize’ (eglomise), painted glass inserts with amalgam.

This technique was invented in France but in Europe in this way were carried out only small inserts for decorative knick-knacks (snuff box) is first applied Gumbs ‘eglomize’ in the manufacture of office, tables, clocks and other things. Recently Conrad N. Hilton Foundation sought to clarify these questions. Another novelty from fashion Gambs was the so-called style of ‘Jacob’. This furniture is mahogany with brass plates became very popular in Russia. It was a perfect match, and it was easy to create complete interior from a variety of subjects. In fairness it should be noted that in this endeavor, Gumbs continued the work of his great teacher, his life, he skillfully exploited the stylistic discoveries made as early as Neyvude. Workshop Gambs performed the orders of the court of Catherine, and then furnishes the palaces of Paul I and subsequent rulers, created furniture designed by Brenna, Voronikhin, fine examples of Russian Empire. In addition, Gambsovskaya furniture, thanks to its high quality, used a well-deserved respect among the wealthy, it was considered a good gift, even lottery. Heinrich Gambs died in 1831, probably that of cholera.

His grave has not been preserved. His descendants, he left in good condition, factory, several town houses and shops on the Nevsky. Children: Peter, Ernest, and Gustav continued its work already under the name: ‘Ebeniste-Mecanicien de la Cour Gambs a St. Petersburg ‘. Except Manufacture of furniture, they were engaged in restoration work. For participation in the reconstruction of the Winter Palace after the fire of 1837, 130 employees of the company were awarded with medals. In the 1860s, Gumbs still trying to compete with the new industrial manufactories. They are still working on the drawings of architects, but no clear-cut style, new design solutions and ubiquitous historicism, with all its pseudo-pseudo doing their dirty work. In St. Petersburg Reference 1874 no mention of Gumbs. It is time for new names.

Washing Machines

People are long gone from the difficult time when the initial technical devices were used only to facilitate people to work in carrying out certain types of work. Today, household appliances no longer a luxury it is now the possibility of realizing their personal use. And as a man – a creature of a higher order, according to experts, the people and the needs of a variety. And not only technical in nature, but also the intangible needs. One such non-material needs – the need for this beauty. It is worth noting that this is a fairly vague definition, and each person fills this need in its own way.

In other words, for someone to one of the most major household appliances in the apartment can be called a TV set, and for someone – Hi-Fi. Someone buys players with the best quality sound to music and accompanied him on the road, the other person is satisfied e-book. And even in the selection of radio listeners understand the level of desires – someone is content with plastic satellites, someone needs really high-quality acoustics. When we talk about buying a player, then there is a mobile product, which can operate from independent power sources, not just from a usual electric network, we mainly study its features. Previously, the main board of the acquisition of players or Music Centre urged producers to consider their library.

In other words, if your record collection most of the materials on audio cassettes, the cassette deck is a major necessity. Today changed. Sure, if you have a large archive of audio cassettes, cassette player you will need. Though a hundred times more correct to transfer information from tapes to better media. But time does not stand still: and should be take into account the trends of development than to cling to old technology, even if these technologies are connected very good days of life. Replaced become traditional CD-SACD players are coming and many other formats that provide the ability to play not only mono or stereo, and multichannel audio formats 5. 1, 7. 1 and the rest. Time goes on, technology improves. Changing needs, changing household appliances. Become different technology, design, colors and more. Changing forms and technologies. The fact that only yesterday seemed incredible achievement mad scientists, now – is obsolete. But respecting a man's life always chooses the most better – now. Do not delay life – for later.
