At Austrian joinery business Ainhirnholz, design and functionality go hand in hand. With its natural surfaces and colours, preserved contours, as well as perceptible haptics, the furniture pieces designed and created by Raphael Ainhirn are anything but conventional.

Starting his professional career in computer science, Raphael Ainhirn soon noticed that he wanted a change.Thus, he enrolled in a carpentry course and, since 2012, has his own workshop in Kumberg.“I simply enjoy working with the material of wood,” he smiles. One significant trademark of his furniture creations is the bicoloured, natural finish which is defined through the high-contrast choice of wood. Another is the exceptional cross-cut wood optics.
