Founded in 1912, the Werkstätte Carl Auböck began as one of many workshops in Vienna specializing in bronze-casting. However, Carl Auböck II (1900-1957) was one of the very few Viennese students who attended the Bauhaus in post-World War I Weimar, and when he returned to the Workshop he brought inspiration from this new design movement. This book explores the expert craftsmanship and superior quality materials that remain the signatures of the Auböck Workshop and reveals their whimsical, modernist designs as prescient objets d’art.
