bonpart is a Vienna based furniture and product design studio by Verena Waidmann and Lukas Gstöttner.
We made our first public appearance at SaloneSatellite in Milan 2016 and have been taking part in several national and international exhibitions since then.
The collaboration is a permanent dialogue, in which we draw upon different backgrounds in engineering and fine art.
In our work we aim for timeless beauty and intelligent solutions, resulting in projects with a certain calmness of clear-lined shapes, yet always with a playful twist. Our sculptural approach goes well with a focus on technical refinements and attentive details.
We have a hands on approach, so we experience technical feasibility as part of the creative process and often as a source of inspiration.
Having two well equipped workshops, one for metal and one for wood, plus a strong local network of artisans and experts in various fields, provides us with valuable experience in craftsmanship and material understanding.
Our work comes from our unique, personal gaze and perception of surroundings, while we consciously dissociate from trends and the search for the „new“ as a self sufficient value. We pay attention to the sustainability of our projects, not only in terms of adequate material properties and quality processing, but also when it comes to aesthetic perception.
