Wolfgang grew up in the south of Austria in a construction family with concrete and steel, earthworks machines and construction trucks. From early childhood his family taught him the basics of running a construction company from development and planning to project management and permitting. He founded his first company, an architectural studio, right after his graduation in architecture. In the course of his career he also discovered a new passion for interior architecture, furniture and product design. The lines of design started to blur, and he went on a quest for the big picture, which would embrace everything connected to living and housing, including landscape architecture – this he saw as a holistic approach. He implemented numerous architectural and interior design projects in different sectors, from residential living to commercial venues.
In 2002 Wolfgang and Connie founded the outdoor furniture brand VITEO. Everything started with a single outdoor table made of wood and stainless steel that Wolfgang designed for their own patio. Within only a few years VITEO became a well-known outdoor specialist company that was successfully operating globally. The brand promoted a new way of outdoor living which became cozier and more glamorous and had a far more enjoyable utility.
Wolfgang simultaneously worked on his architectural projects and designed whole collections for the furniture brand that went viral. He became an expert in material science, product design, production and distribution. His designs received the most prestigious design awards, among others, various Red Dot Awards, the IF-Award, the Good Design Award and many others. Connie managed operations and Wolfgang everything creative. Together they presented their brand at the most important international furniture fairs and were part of a global community of renowned furniture suppliers.
