Cult designer Carl Aubock founded the Werkstatte (workshop) in the 19th century, specialising in bronze casting. Expert craftmanship and superior materials became the signature of his creations and many of their modernist designs stand out as prescient objets d'art. Carrying on generations of the Workshop tradition, Carl's son and grandson (both of the same name) forged ahead with new ideas and designs. This magnificent volume showcases Aubock's finest creations and documents hundreds of signature objects culled from exclusive private collections.

Carl Auböck came from a Viennese artisan family - his parents studied at the Bauhaus in Weimar - and this background has a significant influence on his work. This is the first book to present his wide-ranging oeuvre as architect and designer as well as his importance as a teacher. "Design for modern living" represents Auböck's central concern: innovations for everyday life evolve into whole rooms suited to a "modern" lifestyle and objects which are at once functional and perfectly shaped. His designs are found today in leading collections worldwide, such as the New York Museum of Modern Art, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna.

A "Century of Austrian Design” offers a highly accessible overview of Austrian design culture from 1900 to the present against the background of the country’s extremely turbulent industrial history. In the process, the key aspects are explained in essays by celebrated experts. The book attempts to delineate a specifically "Austrian” formal language, citing as examples specific achievements in historical and contemporary design. As it does so, it also sheds light on other defining moments of Austria’s design culture, including the enormous potential of its inventors, the phenomenon of semi-industrial manufacturing, and the innovative design solutions advanced by the Austrian sporting goods industry. A yellow pages section with selected design addresses rounds off the volume.

The Culture of Nature in the History of Design confronts the dilemma caused by design’s pertinent yet precarious position in environmental discourse through interdisciplinary conversations about the design of nature and the nature of design. Demonstrating that the deep entanglements of design and nature have a deeper and broader history than contemporary discourse on sustainable design and ecological design might imply, this book presents case studies ranging from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century and from Singapore to Mexico. It gathers scholarship on a broad range of fields/practices, from urban planning, landscape architecture, and architecture, to engineering design, industrial design, furniture design and graphic design. From adobe architecture to the atomic bomb, from the bonsai tree to Biosphere 2, from pesticides to photovoltaics, from rust to recycling – the culture of nature permeates the history of design. As an activity and a profession always operating in the borderlands between human and non-human environments, design has always been part of the environmental problem, whilst also being an indispensable part of the solution. The book ventures into domains as diverse as design theory, research, pedagogy, politics, activism, organizations, exhibitions, and fiction and trade literature to explore how design is constantly making and unmaking the environment and, conversely, how the environment is both making and unmaking design. This book will be of great interest to a range of scholarly fields, from design education and design history to environmental policy and environmental history.
