120 Years Wittmann – It all started with a saddlery in the rural Kamptal between Wachau and Vienna. Franz Wittmann knew how to choose his partners. The architect Johannes Spalt, supported him in the selection of designers and enabled Wittmann to obtain the rights for the designs of the renowned architect Josef Hoffmann who, long before the Bauhaus, brought modernity to the furnishings of the Viennese bourgeoisie. Hoffmann’s designs ensure you can clearly recognise what makes a “genuine Wittmann”. They show character without being intrusive: something special with charm. The handcrafted production at the manufactory in Etsdorf, ensure high standards of quality, as well as incomparable seating comfort, providing durability that is worth being passed on.
Over the years, great designers have created for Wittmann: Paolo Piva, Hannes Wettstein, Matteo Thun, Jean Nouvel all while providing the highest level of comfort. Since 2002, Wittmann re-edited the groundbreaking designs of Friedrich Kiesler. And finally, in recent years focus has been placed on the young generation of Austrian designers: Soda Designers, Polka and Marco Dessì have been responsible for many of the successful models in the current collection creating ICONS for tomorrow.
