Carl Auböck

Brass Bookends


The whimsical boomerang shape and rich golden hue of these bookends are typical of Carl Auböck II, who innovated and popularised Modernist cast brass design in the mid-20th century. Today, they are handcrafted by a new generation of Auböcks from the original moulds at the family’s Vienna atelier. 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.
