Made from solid brass using the original mould, this simple paperweight was designed by Carl Auböck II in 1952. One of the best-known figures of Austrian modernism, Auböck was one of the very few Viennese art students to attend the early Bauhaus in Weimar. And he did his teachers proud: Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius kept one of these small ‘Egg’ paperweights on his desk.
Now into the fourth generation, Carl Auböck VI continues to produce these wonderful items for a new century.

Our products are made to order in our workshops in the UK and Portugal. Furniture items can take between 7-8 weeks to arrive with you (possibly longer before and after the summer holiday closure and Christmas), although some items are in stock and can arrive faster. This is indicated against each product as you select your option (this is also where we update the lead time). If you have specific requirements for delivery and would like to know if your order can be delivered sooner, please do contact us.
Our mission is to be a responsible, purposeful and useful company that is fit for the 21st century, and our ambition is to sell our sustainably made furniture to as many people as possible.
