Overview

Company

Voglauer has been paying tribute to the raw material of wood for over 80 years. The small carpentry business in the Abtenau municipality of Austria has grown into an internationally successful company employing over 400 members of staff, and is known above all for the innovative way in which it interprets Alpine elements. To this very day, Voglauer has remained a family-run business.

What we do

Voglauer produces unique works of nature with true craftsmanship and in timeless design at the foot of the Dachstein mountain.

What makes Voglauer so unique.

Icon

Natural

Taking into account the green and social environment, natural wood is processed ecologically and, at the same time, creates a healthy and balanced indoor climate because wood, as a natural building material, provides energy, warmth and a sense of well-being.

Icon

Design

As a traditional manufacturer of natural wooden furniture, Voglauer demonstrates time and again that authenticity, innovation and modern design are no contradiction.

Icon

Craftsmanship

Our furniture is made by people who practise the craft in the region. This can be felt through clever functions for added convenience whereby, in addition to contemporary design, exacting demands are also placed on functionality and ergonomics.

... until today

And today too, Voglauer is still a family-run company that continues to produce in its home town of Abtenau. And does so, in spite of a 75 per-cent export share. Voglauer is branching out in many different directions and remains dynamic.
