Walking Chair Design Studio
We met the russian born designer/artist Maria Volokhova in Germany 2012, when we both were selected at the exhibition 11 years of Young Design in Progress at Talents Messe Frankfurt. We fall immediately in love with her superb ceramic work and now present a selection of her art pieces for the first time in Vienna. YOU HIT TWO RABBITS WITH ONE SHOT — CHINAWARE VERSUS NEW PORCELAIN will be exhibited until 20th December 2013. more
WE CREATE THINGS & SONGS
Design in Vienna: That is not only Thonet and Wiener Werkstätte, Otto Wagner and Lobmeyr, but also young wild designers like Walking Chair… Peter Stuiber, 2007 in Design & Wien, Metro Verlag. Walking Chair Design Studio GmbH was founded by the two designers Fidel Peugeot and Karl Emilio Pircher in 2003 and within a short time has established itself as an international trademark and a buzzling lab for unconventional design ideas.
GOOD DESIGN IS MULTI-FACETED
Fully committed to the idea that good design is multifaceted, we work as idea-finder in various dimensions of design (from a to z) such as: architecture, bar design, brand development, event design, exhibition design, graphic design, interior design, logo design development, multimedia, music, product design, type design, (wireless) webdesign & z-design. For a better overview we have clustered our work and achievement in the following four areas:
• Interieur accessoires and furniture
• Exhibitions, architecture and space concepts
• Graphic design, logos, typography and corporate design
• Things & Songs
We love clear ideas, we love movement, we love to surprise and we love to describe and express our products with songs
GOOD DESIGN MOVES
We are convinced, that the origin of all design solutions is neither form nor function but a individual and personal need. Led by the philosophy Design Follows Content, we combine new and pioneering elements with highest practicability. Our design not only stands out by its unconventional creativity and special humour, but especially by its unique focus on solutions that touch and move people.
Our design philosophy is based on the idea to develop solutions and ideas together with our clients. We especially appreciate clear briefings, good dialogue and joint definitions of content. Based on a productive and stimulating exchange our development work will then allow us to achieve the goal. Ping Meets Pong.
2D + 3D = 5D — COMBINING DESIGN KNOWLEDGE IS EXPLOSIVE
We are working in a very lean structure consisting of a core-team of experts coming from 2D and 3D and a network of freelancers and experts who support us on a regular basis. This allows us not only to offer classical design work but also guarantee the realisation of our ideas, as we can provide in-house engineering competence.
