Thomas Feichtner is an established Austrian designer. His work in the area of furniture and object design is halfway between industry and handicrafts, mass production and one-of-a-kinds and has been acquired by various design collections. Feichtner designed products for traditional crafters such as Lobmeyr, Neue Wiener Werkstaette, Jarosinski & Vaugoin, TON, Augarten and Carl Mertens, and undertook freelance projects in cooperation with Vitra and FSB. In the year 2011, he was awarded the Austrian State Award for Design. Thomas Feichtner lives and works in Vienna.
In comparison to the previous work of Thomas Feichtner for Neue Wiener Werkstaette, the Vitória Collection is a rather smooth and timeless furniture collection; with intent. All parts, consisting of two chairs, a table and a bench, are carefully attuned to each other. The downward tapering legs and the inward drawn chamfers create a unifying design feature. An important part of the collection is its versatility.
