one of our dear paper deer has found hospice at the Biennale office in Vienna, looking out to a great new year.

We are off for the next two weeks so enjoy the silence and happy christmas!

labiennale di venezia

2013 + 1895—2011

More information about the Padiglione Austriaco — La Biennale die Venezia (the Austrian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale) 2013 is online. This latest example of sensomatic’s minimal site department — — includes black and white images of the artist, commissioner and the Austrian Pavilion.

Additionally to this site we also designed the online archive of the Austrian activities at the Biennale from 1895—2011. You can see who was busy when and where doing what and vice versa at

happy advent 2012 with the

Brno Excursion

Sensomatic went to Brno to see the Graphic Design Biennale and follow an architectural tour through the city. We liked the Experimental Jetset exhibition at Moravska gallery.

Another annual report of Lokale Liaison, the art education department of the Kunstverein Wolfsburg, was now released as the second edition in a series, featuring bright green after yellow.

Sensomatic are featured in the Sunday newspaper with an interview about paper.

summer collection

The new 2012 summer eyeglasses cleaning cloth collection — out now.

more objects and even more paper

we commissioned Ms. Katrin Schubert to create one of her crazy paperworlds for Roland Bischel’s shopping window. All summer style.

beziehungsweise opening

Yesterday the exhibition beziehungsweise at Wittmann Showroom Vienna opened. We installed a gigantic display featuring a mobile. Still on display until August 11th.

Biennale 2013

Today commissioner Jasper Sharp announced Mathias Poledna as artist of next year’s show at the Austrian Pavilion in Venice. Sensomatic were commissioned for the overall graphic identity. Featuring Soleil, a brand new font by Wolfgang Homola.

Architekturtage opening 2012

For the opening of Architekturtage 2012, the BUWOG exhibition was installed again in a small version of 4 cubes. This time we went for a 3-dimensional detail in the site maps. Collaboration with bindermayer design, powered by the excellent teams of Dekotrend and Viennaprint.

beziehungsweise — respectively

Coming up: a group exhibition at Wittmann Möbelwerkstätten Schauraum, Karlsplatz, titled "beziehungsweise". Sensomatic are responsible for invites, posters as well as exhibition design. Curated by section.a, opening Thursday, June 21st.

pimp my ride

As part of the series “graphics on things” the Obenauf logo on (some of) their cars.

back to school

With the help of sensomatic’s signage pupils, teachers and guests of the new “Stelzamer Hauptschule” in Linz will easily find their way to the classrooms, laboratories and lavatories.

For better performances we put some patterned sports illustrations on the perforated walls of the gym.

water feature

Roland Bischel can now call himself proud owner of a maintenance free in-shop reef.

And the Diagonale goes on

This years’s Diagonale festival has just reached its end but the latest version of the Diagonale website will be online for the rest of the year — and hopefully for a couple more.

Shop ’till you drop

The ultimate fun of online shopping is now also possible on the freshly electrified website of the Czernin Verlag.

With the power of our first choice web wizards kleber, you can not only purchase texts on paper — some of them beautifully wrapped in sensomatic’s design — but also quickly downloadable eBooks.

some cutting and glueing later …

… the finshed catalogue is lying on our desk.

in the press

Live from the bookbinders: our catalogue is being blind embossed as we speak. And now we know what a book street looks like ...

get on top

We’ve just finished the website for Obenauf — the best roof system people in Vienna.

Photographer Hanna Haböck (remember?) proofed to be free from giddiness when she danced on the rooftops to take some pictures of the construction works. Luckily she could distract herself from the heights by looking at the good looking builders …

website for scientists

Good news for all inventors and scientists who need some funding for their laboratories! The new website for the Christian Doppler Forschungsgesellschaft (don’t forget to inhale) gives you all information you need for starting/funding a lab to work on things other people even didn’t know they exist (us included).

mumok refurbished

After complaints — from a very remote place somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Germany — that we don’t update our site frequently enough, here’s something you might not know:

Super type lady Martha Stutteregger was comissioned to come up with a new corporate identity for the Museum of Modern Art in Vienna aka mumok. For digital she asked sensomatic to help her getting the new identity on the existing technical structure of the mumok website.
Not as good as a complete revamp but not bad for the little time we had.

poster going international

My poster from 1995 is part of an exhibition at Kunstmuseum Dieselkraftwerk Cottbus. In this photo (© Lausitzer Rundschau) you can see it in the background, just left from the curator, in red. It was a contribution to the Unesco‘s year of tolerance.
