Porsche Design

My first implemented project. Now exhibited as iconic Austrian design.

While working at Porsche Design I had the pleasure of taking part in a huge variety of projects; always hopping from fashion design, to electronics and even architectural concepts… my specialty became eye wear.

Exhibited as iconic design piece

At Porsche Design everyone pushes himself and his colleagues to do their best in a short amount of time. These sunglasses too were the result of an intense sprint. I am honored that my first implemented design sits next to the likes of the first Thonet chair representing Austrian design culture.
