The architect and designer Martin Mostböck designs furniture, houses, business facilities, interiors, objects of everyday life and is a frontier between the disciplines. Mostböck renounces superficial styling. He seeks and finds the authentic. He wants ideas not only to be detected but also to be visualized and to be made palpable. Architecture is a joint trip for him. At the end of the journey eveyerbody should be pleased. For Mostböck, planning a house is like working on a tailored suit. Architects need to read the minds of their clients. That's the only way to develop an object with soul.
