The design company Vogt & Weizenegger was founded in 1993 by Oliver Vogt (bon in Essen in 1966) and Hermann Weizenegger (born in Kempten in 1963). Both designers are students of Hans (Nick) Roericht, one of the defenders of the design university Ulm (HfG). Their concept radicalizes the pragmatic-sociologic approach of the HfG and of Roericht, and sees the meaning of objects and their use, in the tradition of the Bauhaus.
The designers see the utility of objects as a consumer and producer at the same time; it equips its world by its own. In this context they published the Blaupause in 1993. Hereby the customer gets assembly instructions with a license to rebuild instead of a completed piece of furniture.
Vogt & Weizenegger connect design with the aim of enabling a new view to what already exists and to light all the factors of an appearance, making the impossible possible. They want to create products as well as systems that convince with their holistic approach. The fields of Vogt & Weizenegger thereby are the classic areas of design such as industrial, graphic and interior design.
The works of Vogt & Weizenegger are included in the permanent collections of the German Hygiene-Museum, the FNAC, the MARTa Herford and others.
Vogt & Weizenegger already received diverse design awards, among them the Red Dot Design Award and the iF Design Award.
