Austrian architect Wolfgang Pichler came up with idea of designing a series of outdoor furniture in 2001, when was looking for some to use in his own garden. He intended the series to meet his own design standards and the requirements of a top quality product: the perfect synthesis of form and function would convey relaxation and quality of life in fast-moving times! In addition to high and uncompromising quality standards he wanted ergonomics, durability and variable functionality to define the product philosophy.
It didn’t take long to consider what the company should be called. VITEO is derived from Latin viteus (the vine), and is a homage to the beauty of the natural surroundings in the wine region of southern Styria, where the company is based.
VITEO>OUDOORS has now been designing and producing outdoor furniture for over 7 years and sells these products across the world.
The products of the already well established series HOME COLLECTION present themselves in oiled teak combined with a base of stainless steel, in 2010 some items are being offered under the name of BANDOLINE with a particularly resistant material finish: anthracite grey laminate. The series SOLO COLLECTION is completely made of Iroko wood. CEMENTUM presents grey concrete components at ground level, new in 2010 is an additional CEMENTUM LIGHT version made of fibre cement. The VITEO URBAN COLLECTION has been displaying innovative design products like the VITEO Shower; for the fields of shadowing and lighting VITEO has also come up with beautiful, functional designs.
