About Buchegger, Denoth and Feichter Design

The Austrian designers Bernhard Buchegger, Michael Denoth and Thomas 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”.

Somebody informed me that there was a mistake here: BD and F are an advertising agency and Thomas Feichtner has his own site
