Strasshof Schaudepot

Together with section.a and Wendelin Pressl we designed the Strasshof museums collection as an open and interactive archive. Everybody is invited to add their personal objects and comments. The museum re-opened in december 2016.

happy holidays

we wish all our clients and friends a relaxed christmas break and a good start into 2017!

Let it snow


Those of you who’ve been outdoors in a landscape covered in fresh snow know the very special dampened sound which makes you feel peaceful (or ski crazy).

We’ve simulated that experience in the shop of optician Roland Bischel by covering many surfaces with white acoustic insulation material. So it is not just looking like it has been snowing indoors but also makes you feel you are in the mountains. How cool is that?

Loonies will feel at home, too.

Joseph Binder Award

We received a flag yesterday for our OBENAUF/ building site interventions.

Österreichischer Buchpreis

On tuesday the first Austrian book prize was awarded to Friederike Mayröcker. Our logo was on air in the prime time news.

New books

Two new books just arrived: Fluchtwege and Wachstumsstrategien, both published by Czernin. They make a good pair.

Austrian Book Prize

Now available at a bookshop near you: the brochure featuring excerpts of the longlist and debut shortlist books for this year's very first Austrian Book Prize.
Well done Max, aromatom (brochure typesetting) and Heli Amann (code) and his team.

4 years ago

Exactly four years ago Stelzhamerschule school in Linz reopened their newly designed building with giant athletic wall graphics in their gyms. We hope the Stelzhamer pupils still enjoy the murals as much as we do. Photos by the great Herta Hurnaus.

Tools in the clouds

Inspired by this cloudy summer we painted some fluffy tools (or tools in fluff?) for the latest OBENAUF/ building site illustration.

We like metal

Our hipster department has refurbished this beautiful Bertin bicycle. Before it was a wreck with lots of missing parts (that’s why we got it for free). Now it’s a real beauty again.

Cyclemaniac information:
Purist will probably hate the fact, that it got new wheels and show off fenders but we wanted to build something you can actually use every day. The bycicle’s previous owner had already changed the gear shift and levers. The machine hammerd fenders are as close to the wheels as you can get. Waterdrops between these two parts will probably evaporate by the friction before they reach the end of the fender. We upholstered the seat and worked hard to get the 'MAFAC RACER" breaks working again. Thanks to the French origin of the crank we couldn’t add any off the shelf pedals but had to get vintage ones with the right diameter of the thread. More details maybe once we update the output section again.
