Carl Auböck “U” Key Ring
Simple and enduring, this U-shaped key ring is a practical piece of art – and a testament to Austrian designer Carl Auböck’s splendid brass work. Crafted in Auböck’s Viennese workshop – now in its fourth generation – this un-lacquered, solid piece of brass features removable stoppers on both ends to allow keys to slide into place. Auböck has a passion for the elegant and unfussy, describing his designs as a combination of “simplicity and high quality – no fashionable tricks. Such artefacts develop a soul over time, a certain patina.”
