A 'Gentle Homorous Aesthetic'

and style) we think Gregson’s images are as elegant as the Auböck objects themselves. Cereal’s article on the Fourth Generation Craftsman Carl Auböck traces the design history of the esteemed Viennese metal workshop, its affiliations with the likes of Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus and Charles Eames, and the ethos of Werkstätte Carl Auböck still going strong today. We liked and agree with the author’s observation that one of the qualities of Auböck design is the ‘gently humorous aesthetic’!
