Designer: Carl Auböck

Carl Auböck (1900-1957) is one of the most extraordinary personalities of Austrian modernism. After working as an apprentice bronze worker and engraver for his family business in the early 1900′s, he went on to be a student of Johannes Itten, a Swiss expressionist painter and designer. Once graduated he took over his father’s workshop in 1926 and in the early 40′s, he developed a very particular style which many consider modernist, in fact he became the face of Austrian modernism.
