STANDARD EXPERIMENTE 2018

Wittmann – Spezialbetrieb für Massivholzbearbeitung

28.9.–7.10.2018

Can experiments become standard? Since 1879, the family-owned Wittman company, located in Upper Austria’s Almtal, has worked with solid wood, cultivating one thing above all: experimentation combined with craft expertise. As part of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, the furniture maker will present two current projects created by designers with close ties to the festival: While the alpine furniture of the industrial and festival exhibition designer Robert Rüf helped determine the architectural character of the restaurant at the new Patscherkofelbahn in Innsbruck, the hexagonal design provided by MARCH GUT seamlessly integrates into the graphic typology of the Ars Electronica Berlin.
