The Feuerle Collection is a non-profit organization in Berlin founded by Désiré Feuerle and Sara Puig in 2016.


It hosts exquisite, early Imperial Chinese stone and lacquer furniture and Chinese scholar furniture from the Han Dynasty to the early Qing Dynasty, from 200 BC to the 17thC, juxtaposed with early Khmer sculptures from the 7th to the 13thC, and international contemporary art by Zeng Fanzhi, Nobuyoshi Araki, Anish Kapoor, Cristina Iglesias, and Adam Fuss.

Located in a former Second World War telecommunications bunker that has been renovated by British architect John Pawson, the institution encourages a conversation between different periods and cultures, and offers a new perception of ancient art.

As part of a 7,350m2 space, The Feuerle Collection has two main exhibition halls, a Sound Room, a Lake Room, and an Incense Room.

The Feuerle Collection is the first art institution in the world to present the Chinese Incense Culture. As one of China’s oldest traditions, dating back over 2,000 years, the Incense Ceremony is now presented as a contemporary art performance.

Désiré Feuerle, who comes from a contemporary art background, owned a gallery in the nineties in Cologne, Germany, where he pioneered juxtaposing ancient art with contemporary and modern art, as well as re-looking at antiques from a contemporary perspective. 

Sara Puig is Founder of The Sara Puig Institute for the Arts and current President of the Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona, where she has been a Trustee since 2014. From 1998 to 2013, she was Director of Fundación Francisco Godia in Barcelona, Spain.
