Carl Auböck Paperclip Brass Letter Opener


The dual function of this brass letter opener that can also serve as a bookmark speaks to the ingenious mid-century mould by Carl Auböck II. His sleek, undulating design is still hand-shaped and refined at the family’s workshop in Vienna by descendants Carl Auböck IV and V. Please note, as this piece is made and finished by hand, slight markings and imperfections may occur. These only add to its unique character.

Carl Auböck

After years at the forefront of the Bauhaus and Wiener Werkstätte traditions, Carl IV still works in the same atelier with the original brass moulds. He has modernised the hand-worked desk sets with input from designers like Michael Anastassiades, yet the handmade ethos remains.
