Buchegger, Denoth andFeichter Design
The Austrian designer
s Bernhard Buchegger, Michael Denoth andThomas Feichtner, based in Linz, Austria, understand “Axiome” as a counter strategy to an economically motivated concept of design. Instead of creating objects according to economic criteria, they search for a strategy apart of globalization and mass production. Their work is dominated by cultural and artistic aspects of design, by formal development as well as a break with the concept of design as a function of purpose. According to them the future lies with products having a regional and cultural reference, fabricated by way of small-scale manufacture. Buchegger, Denoth,Feichtner declare the definition of “industrial design” as being obsolete and predict a movement back to “manufactories”.
