During the post war years, mosaic was brought to new heights with regards to architectural art due to intensive artistic studies and new technical developments.

From the beginning, restoration and reconstruction of historic stained glass and mosaics were important and new experience in these fields have, over generations, assisted in realising these sorts of projects. The complicated technique of thermo-insulated glass systems was studied thouroughly in the Mayer Studio to preserve medieval and stained glass from previous decades. This technique was used for the first time in 1952 for a large scale restoration project for the Munich Cathedral. In the early 1980ies the “Floatglass Painting” department was created.

Today the company is managed by Gabriel Mayer (*1938) and by his son Michael C. Mayer (*1967), who is the 5th generation.
