Wittmann has a tradition of craftsmanship dating back over a century. Precision, continuity and craft skills have shaped the philosophy of the company since its origins as a saddlery and leather workshop. Sustainability, in the form of long-lasting products, is a central concern. A passionate sense of obligation to a tradition of good design has led to a commitment to classic models that stand out for their uncluttered lines and timeless elegance.
The exclusive use of carefully selected quality materials, and unparalleled seating and reclining comfort are the hallmarks of a genuine Wittmann. When you buy a genuine Wittmann you are not acquiring furniture that is already on its way to the dump, but a piece that Wittmann can keep recovering to suit your tastes and changing fashions for many years ahead.
Marco Dessí lives and works in Vienna. He studied Industrial Design at the University for Applied Arts in Vienna. Since the establishment of his own design studio in 2007, he has been responsible for many projects with a number of acclaimed Austrian companies, such as Lobmeyr, Neue Wiener Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten and Wittmann Möbelwerkstätten. Dessí’s approach is practical and cooperative, with design taken to be an interactive process. He is not committed to any particular style, preferred material or unified formula, but rather regards designing as a trade characterized by a deep understanding of materials, processes and how the two are linked. In his work, Dessí values transparency in terms of a consistent link between the process of designing and the actual conditions of production. The effort to create a perfectly designed object manifests itself in an uncompromising unity of function, construction, and aesthetics; precise relations of form and dimension are just as relevant as are intelligent combinations of materials and a well-considered, detailed concept.
