Artwerk Press is the brainchild of Daniel Ulrichs, a musician who delved into the world of retail nearly a decade ago.
Daniel’s family started a traditional wooden toy shop called The Wooden Heart in the 1970s – an institution in Galway that is adored by parents and children alike. He took over the business in 2008 and opened his passion project – Coffeewerk + Press – across the street seven years later.
One-part-design-store and one-part-coffee-cafe, Coffeewerk + Press is multi-purpose space that allows an intersection between international design and specialty coffee. Like Artwerk Press, Daniel’s intention with Coffeewerk has been to create a place where stories can be shared: stories of artists and makers, coffee growers and roasters – and customers who enjoy both.
Artwerk Press products are sold in both retail spaces; while the customers who frequent each establishment are very different, the interest has been overwhelmingly positive in both.
