Hohensinn Architektur & miniform | Fritz Friedrich GmbH
Within Designmonat Graz 2017, five Austrian designers were invited by Creative Industries Styria and Holzcluster Steiermark to develop – in cooperation with five Styrian wood building companies – prototypes of smart urban furniture made of the raw material wood.
‘Turning, tipping, stapling, piling, parking, reflecting’ – a modular and manifold piece of wooden furniture for constantly changing urban spaces. The module can be used and combined differently by tipping, turning and stapling. It is possible to generate communication sites and meeting points as well as covered rooms of retreat and recreation or playgrounds and bike-parking facilities.

Karlheinz Boiger is an architect and partner of the architectural studio ‘hohensinn architektur’ in Graz. After winning the international competition and implementation of the Austrian pavilion for the EXPO 2015 in Milan, he founded ‘breathe. earth. collective’, an interdisciplinary think tank consisting of designers, architects, ecologists and artists.
Klemens Mitheis operates as an architect at hohensinn architektur and founded together with five colleagues the architecture and design collective Miniform in 2016. The five designers are united by their love of minimalistic and clear, yet still bearing complexity, forms.
The company Fritz Friedrich from Frohnleiten, with a team of 22 employees, rely on the production of play and sports facilities as well as wooden outdoor furniture for private and public areas. All products fulfill the highest safety requirements and are characterized by solid constructions and handcrafted perfection.
