Since receiving his degree in Industrial Design in 2007, Vienna-based Designer, Philipp Aduatz, has been creating functional design pieces that blur the boundaries between art and design. All his objects come in limited editions and are fabricated with innovative materials and fabrication technologies.
The main influence of his work are scientific matters, these inputs derive from his PhD studies where he was concerned with, chemistry, physics and material technologies. Another intention of his work is to develop a certain language of form; sculptors like Constantin Brancusi or Tony Cragg were major influences. Aduatz tries to combine in his work traditional craft techniques with innovative implements such as 3D laser scanning, CNC milling or Rapid Prototyping to develop a new discourse.
