After more than 100 new designs, it was time to take stock. Andreas, Leonid, and Johannes Rath who in the sixth generation head the firm of J. & L. Lobmeyr established since 1823, presented an exhibition and a book published by Birkhäuser on the first phase of their creative period. The book is a bibliophile testimony to an extraordinary product portfolio and provides an inside view of current developments. Many projects are closely linked to the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, some of the designers who were unknowns at the start are stars today.
“At the start of the twenty-first century, too, J. & L. Lobmeyr are successful in finding the most important designers of a new generation – not as trophies but as the creative epicenter of its continuing development.” (Deyan Sudjic)
