Pudelskern is a design team from Innsbruck. Pudelskern calls itself a ‘Space Agency’–dealing with the allocation and use of space - the core of their work - as well as product designers or as interior planners. The three agents from Pudelskern work together since 2006 and their list of works includes a project of a space ship for the European Space Agency. Different inspiration also comes from different backgrounds of the members of Pudelskern - two studied architecture and one is a trained carpenter and designer. The products of Pudelskern range from plastic objects to furniture made of wool and besides seeking their fortune at the international furniture fair in Milan, the studio designs interiors of clubs and flats. In all their works a playful energy can be found “It’s the love of life and the love for the world we are living in, that drives us to search for new designs. Design should try to make the world a bit better.”

Pudelskern refers to a quote from Goethe‘s drama Faust: the first part of the tragedy. Though the main character Heinrich Faust successfully gained knowledge on his quest for the essence of life, he is still unsatisfied:
Here now I stand, poor fool, and see
I‘m just as wise as formerly.
When he meets the devil he makes a deal trading his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The devil approaches Faust in disguise of a poodle, revealing his true character only later:
So this, then, was the kernel of the brute!
Goethe‘s quote Das also war des Pudels Kern! entered German language meaning to find the core of a thing - the gist of the matter.
