Unmatched craftsmanship, as well as meticulous selection and working of fine materials, provide the basis for executing new ideas and forms. To bring them to life, Wittmann regularly partners with the greatest names of their time. And it is not uncommon for long-term cooperations to be the outcome: collaborators including Johannes Spalt, Jean Nouvel, Matteo Thun and Paolo Piva set the direction that Jaime Hayon, Sebastian Herkner and Luca Nichetto have now seamlessly picked up on, taking it into a new era.
Since its formation as a saddlery in 1896, the company has always been a family affair, and production takes place exclusively at the headquarters in Etsdorf, Lower Austria. Wittmann really started to make a name for itself as an internationally respected manufacturer of upholstered furnishings in the 1950s. Chairs, sofas, beds and mattresses are still handmade to the same exacting standards to this day, drawing on unique expertise that is handed down from one generation to the next. This commitment to tradition and craftsmanship provides the foundation for the company’s future.
