Austrian designer Rainer Mutsch delves into each partner company's DNA before ever beginning to sketch.
He also ensures that his designs don’t force materials to do something they weren’t meant to. Mutsch likes to use eco-sensitive, recyclable materials, such as the asbestos-free fiber-cement panels in his Dune furniture collection. But he also seeks an emotional link with his creations. The natural marble table and shelf he designed for Breitwieser expresses his simultaneous search for elegance and reduction of material use to a minimum. He strives to create lasting designs that result in products that are appreciated and manufactured for years.
