Luxury Design, Past & Present
Franz Hagenauer liked to experiment with different materials. He took an enamel class at the Wiener-Kunstgewerbeschule and was fond of working with different techniques. In the 1940ies he discovered a technique that involved filling the spaces between his brass sculptures with colorful resin. He mostly produced animal depictions or religious subjects with this craft.
Our colorful cat is from that time. It is made out of brass and the spaces are filled with resin. The cat is undamaged which is very rare for that material combination because of the fragility of resin.
