VIENNA, AUSTRIA | CRYSTAL
Lobmeyr is a crystal factory founded in 1823 by Josef Lobmeyr in Vienna. The company quickly established itself as a pioneer in crystal production in Austria and Bohemia.
The Lobmeyr family has been passionate about crystal for over two centuries. Six generations have succeeded one another, exploring over time all possible processes to sublimate this material with its unique transparency and shinning characteristics.
Since its foundation, Lobmeyr has had the privilege of counting among its clients the Vienna National Opera, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Schönbrunn Palace. Rudolf Habsburg himself wrote in his correspondence in 1885 that Lobmeyr's creations were the "jewel of Austrian industry".
Since 2000, Andreas, Leonid and Rohannes Rath have taken over the activities of Lobmeyr, focusing on collaborations with a new generation of designers.
