About

 

UNITED EVERYTHING is a multidisciplinary art and design studio based in Vienna, Austria. We integrate media, visual and physical design to create singular experiences and spaces for exhibitions, museums and branded architecture. We approach the projects in the early stages of concept and planning and oversee each step of the process until launching. Ongoing research into technology and development is a core part of the process, constantly allowing for experimentation within new fields.

The studio’s portfolio includes projects for Samsung, OEBB Austrian Federal Railways, Designmonat Graz, Creative Industries Styria, Erste Bank, ISS Austria, City of Graz, Kornberg, among many others. We worked with cultural institutions as the Venice Design Week, Joanneum Universal Museum Austria, Steirischerherbst, Design Museum London and Medialab Prado Madrid. We had the opportunity to enter high-level architecture competitions that rendered many international design awards, including Best Architect 2016, Contract Interior Design Award 2015, Leaf International Interior Design of the Year and nominations to the prestigious German Design Award, for the projects OEBB and Rolling Stones, realised in collaboration with the renowned Austrian architecture firm INNOCAD.

From the idea to concept and from the sketch to the handcrafted object, we also design and create our own products. In 2009, the studio launched the iTree – an award winner iPhone docking station exhibited in the Milan Design Week, New York Wired Design Fair, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, Moscow Design Week, and in high-level retail design shops from San Francisco and New York to Vienna, Miami, Lisbon and London. In 2016, we presented the design label HOLT in the Design Forum Graz, a sustainable and locally produced furniture and home accessories line developed with the Kornberg Design Tischler and the London based project OpenDesk. HOLT was exhibited in the Milan Design Week and received the Vulkanland Austrian Innovation 1st Prize, two Austrian Craft Awards and a nomination for the NWW Design Award.

UNITED EVERYTHING was founded in 2011 by Fernanda Reis and Georg Kettele. Fernanda Reis is an independent design curator, architect and designer, interested in contemporary practices and new formats of exhibition making. In her former role as Head of Exhibition of Selected at the Designmonat festival in Graz, Unesco City of Design, she was responsible for Austria´s largest international contemporary design exhibition. Georg Kettele is a creative generalist and trained architect whose work ranges from media installations to space corporate identity, product and web design.
