Karl Auer
Karl Auer born in Vienna views housing as very creative and dynamic spaces. Early in his career he was chief designer of the evergreen Opus 1 range. That gently rounded furniture caused a trend in the 80's - and in less than 25 years has been elevated to the level of a natural wood classic. The Cubus series was also designed by Karl Auer: clear, large area, straight lines without unnecessary jumps, niches or flourishes - the furniture evokes the sensuality of living noble natural wood. Traditional craftsmanship lovingly finishes each Cubus piece lifting it up to the level of beautiful art. A nearly inexhaustible variation of shapes for every need and space - whether as a cupboard, pantry or display cabinet. The body and individual elements are combined in any combination maximising freedom to fit into non-standard spaces. At IMM Cologne 2007, Cubus was extended to include many new living spaces including hallway entrance furniture. With these and many other programs, Karl Auer has for 34 years shown an unerring instinct for creative living.
