Carl Auböck Earlobe Brass Bookends


These bookends in polished and patinated brass are newly cast in an organic earlobe shape designed by Carl Auböck II in 1948. Today they’re produced by his namesakes, Carl Auböck IV and V, who hand-work each piece to a satisfying tactile finish at the family atelier in Vienna. Please note, as these pieces are made and finished by hand, slight markings and imperfections may occur. These only add to their 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.
