Their love for the material glass is still unbroken in the 6th generation at Lobmeyr. Since 2000 the traditional Austrian manufacturer implemented more than one hundred designs by domestic and international designers and also reintroduced historical shapes. This year, they also took part at Milan Design Week!
Known designers as Stefan Sagmeister (US), Formafantasma (NL), Poetic Lab (GB) or Polka (AT) co-developed Lobmeyr’s world of shapes in the recent years, drawn on the legendary conceptions of the early 20th century. These new designs – from classics for the daily use up to exceptional, artful installations – are now all collected and documented within one book: "Lobmeyr Contemporary – Entwürfe seit 2000" is presented today at Lobmeyr Kärntner Straße and from now also available in bookstores!
In an exhibition at the company building the original objects are displayed and can be seen until October 28th. Stop by and have a look at these wonderful pieces of design!
