Chain-Link Brass Paperweight

$385

This brass chain-link paperweight by Carl Auböck is a true conversation piece, centred around the Latin memento mori, translating to ‘remember you must die’. It’s inspired by the ancient tale of sailors who, upon passing away at sea, were stitched into cotton hammocks before a four-piece part of the anchor chain was attached. Place it on your desk as the maker intended, and watch it serve as the perfect way to break the ice at future negotiations. 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.
