Zoran Kirchhofferwas born a long time, or maybe not so long time ago in Osijek. Upon completion of the five-year study in Slavonski Brod he gained the title of Master of mechanical engineering. Shortly thereafter, he was employed as a restorer at the Technical Museum in Zagreb, where he works today as the head of restoration workshop and protection of museum collections.
So far, he attended a series of congresses in order to improve his knowledge and to follow contemporary world trends in the restoration founded on thr museum principles. He is a member of the international group whose interests are metal, ceramics and glass. Technical items are mainly multimaterial, so on daily basis he comes in contact with other materials from which he is particularly interested in polymers, wood and rubber.
Sonja Kirchhoffer was born, in her judgment, not so long ago in Slavonski Brod. She completed a program of study of the History and Croatology at the Centre for Croatian Studies, University of Zagreb. She is a doctoral student of the classical period at the Centre for Croatian Studies. As an associate in title of assistant she was involved in the teaching process in the study of history in Centre for Croatian Studies of University of Zagreb until the reorganization of the program in the department of history, when the cours by the name Ancient history of Croatian territory was repealed, on which she worked together with her mentor prof. Ph. D. Anamaria Kurilić. In her work she often cooperates with various scientific and cultural institutions, such as Croatian Institute of History and the Technical Museum, and more recently is mainly focused on managing the family conservation craft "Industrial archaeology". She is the author of several scientific and professional papers on various topics. Out of love for the profession and the general literature she published, and still is, book reviews on various topics (eg. "Vijenac", "Zarez").
