Through participation on numerous projects Werner Sobek has shaped the design and function of various buildings. The studio has delivered complete designs for products such as chairs or cable end fittings just as it did for highrise buildings, trade fairs, stadia, residential buildings, temporary structures or urban objects.
A common feature in all these designs is their high formal quality, the shaping, right down to the smallest detail, and the high level of functionality.
Everything that is superfluous is omitted. Where possible, strategies of standardization and pre-assembly of elements are applied, which guarantee high levels of cost-effectiveness and high quality. Form, function and structure thus converge to form a perfect unit.
Werner Sobek develops designs built according to formal quality, constructive logic, lightness, and transparency. But we do not only emphasize the design of particular elements – our objective is to make them fit harmoniously into the overall context. We should not ask “how did we use to work and live” but “how shall we work and live in the future?”.
For us, the designing process involves a reduction to the quintessential, at all times testing the limits of what is formally, physically and technically feasible. Minimized designs with high grade of complexity and an extremely high degree of formal quality are the result of this approach.
Our aim is to create a built environment that is breathtakingly beautiful while also serving the interests of future generations.
