Werkstätte Carl Auböck is a fourth-generation Viennese workshop known for its witty approach to modern industrial design. The workshop was founded in 1900 and reformed in 1926, when Carl Auböck (1900–1957) returned from his studies at the Weimar Bauhaus and took over the metalsmith business of his father, Karl Heinrich Auböck (1872–1925). Carl Auböck II was among the few Viennese students to attend the post-World War I Bauhaus in Weimar. Upon his return to the Workshop, he brought with him the inspiration of the new design movement. The Bauhaus-inspired Auböck Workshop is defined by expert craftsmanship and materials of superior quality. Auböck, influenced by both his education and his father’s work, united functional modernism with Austrian craft, creating the visual style of the Werkstätte Carl Auböck.
