Will there ever come a day when I can safely say – okay, now I know all the best designers in the world? I seriously doubt it, since I keep discovering new things every day. Take Carl Auböck for example. This Austrian designer made some of the most beautiful brass Mid-Century Modern home accessoires I have ever seen – yet I had never heard of him until yesterday. I particularly love the brass hand. And the foot. Oh, and the bookends. Oh well, I guess I like it all!
You can find out more about Carl Auböck in this article from the New York Times and on the website of New York gallery Mondo Cane – which is also where you can buy most of the items. And where would we be without 1stdibs.com?
