About

Mostlikely Design operates in the area of classical and experimental design. We are offering within the frame of classical contract work design services and design solutions for companies and institutions like the City of Vienna, the Bundesforste Österreich or the social venture Magdas by Caritas.

Mostlikely designs products for already established companies like Augarten Porcelain as for newcomers like Mo Sound or SendHit. On the other side Mostlikely develops design projects and design products proactive to explore new strategies for upcoming industries.

Mostlikely is aware of global problems like the exploitation of humans and the exploitation of natural resources and we try to tackle the problems of our society with the help of design, technology and economy.

Augarten X Mostlikely

Location: Vienna
Year: 2014
Design type: Product
Design team: Maik Perfahl / Wolfgang List
Design client: Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten

Augarten X Mostlikely is a cooperation between the 300 year old porcelain manufacturer Augarten and the design company Mostlikely. What sounds like a culture clash created a win-win situation for both companies. Viennese tradition meets up with high tech design. The basis for the collaboration are the paper lamp shades of Mostlikely. The Penguin and Owl are designed on the computer and the models for the casting molds are printed in 3D by Mostlikely. The porcelain manufacturer Augarten produces and distribute the hand painted figurines.

Chandigarh-Collection

Year: 2016
Design type: Furniture Design & DIY Manuals
Design team: Mark Neuner, Andreas Lint

Download the DIY Manuals and build your own Chandigarh design classic!

After we finished to build the furniture for the temporary market “Markterei” we could pursued our in-between workshop for further adventures. For a longtime we adored the yet simple but timeless elegance of the Chandigarh furniture collection of Pierre Jeanerette and Le Corbusier. However, those rare pieces are just unaffordable.

So we decided to design a reinterpretation of our favourite pieces and carefully translate them to DIY manuals. With the help of these DIY manuals you can easily build your own furniture icon at very low cost.

So download the DIY Manuals and build your own Chandigarh design classic!

Mostlikely Silver

Location: Vienna
Year: 2014
Design type: Product
Design team: Maik Perfahl / Wolfgang List

The silver pendants are miniatures of our iconic paper lamp shade designs. The small wireframe models are produced in Belgium by using a wax 3D printing and lost wax casting method. The molten silver is poured into the casting. Once the silver has cooled and solidified, the plaster mold is broken and the silver models are removed by hand. Finally, the pendant gets a gloss finish. The chain is made out of silver in Austria. The customers are invited to thread the chain through the wireframe model however they like – DIY.

Of Donkeys and Basilisks

Location: Vienna
Year: 2012
Design type: Audiovisual sculpture
Design team: Kurt Mühlbauer / Maik Perfahl / Mark Neuner / Robert Schwarz / Wolfgang List

Mostlikely participated in the Vienna Design Week 2012 with a reconstruction of the Viennese Basilisk, a legendary creature. It was composed of 360 complex and individual parts. Those consisted of a total of 3780 two dimensional paperforms. And these again were glued together on 22680 folds. Low tech prototyping – by applying this method in a manic manner we succeed to create something delirious.

Participants: Patrick Juttel, Iza Rogucka, Anna- Katharina Nickel, Mira Tesselaar, Julia Machan, Barbara Karner, Clio van Aerde, Linnéa Jänen and Peter Gála.

Mostlikely Animals

Location: Vienna
Year: 2012
Design type: Product
Design team: Maik Perfahl / Wolfgang List

The Mostlikely Animals are complex 3D computer models that get transformed into low tech paper models. In a first step a 3D computer model gets designed. Afterwards the 3d computer model gets transformed into a flat plan. This flat plan is printed out on heavy paper, using a standard oversized printer found in most architecture firms. The printout is turned over to the customer, and in the last step the customer cuts out, folds and glues the parts together. The finished product is a complex object at a low price. The final product can be used as mask, lampshade or something else. At the international fair Maison&Objet in Paris Mostlikely won the Prix Découvertes MAISON&OBJET 2012.

Plaudereckn

5 different locations in Vienna:
e.g. Columbusplatz 1010 Vienna
Staudgasse 1180 Vienna
Year: summer 2020
Status: completed
Design type: Furniture for public spaces
Design team: Mark Neuner, Marlene Lötsch

 

In the middle of the Corona pandemic, we were commissioned by the city of Vienna to design a public bench. The furniture should stimulate social contacts while helping to comply to the Covid 19 rules.
Our idea was to design colourful and comfortable furniture which invites people to sit down and have a chat. A small side table enables all kinds of activities and to helps to transform it to your outside living room. The bench was equipped with a common flower which someone has to take care of.

The Rockspeaker

Location: Vienna
Year: 2015
Design type: Product
Design team: Maik Perfahl / Wolfgang List
Design partner: Mo Sound
Press Kit The Rockspeaker

The Rockspeakers are 3D printed active and passive speakers. The Rockspeaker is one of the first products we are developing and producing with a 3d printer. We teamed up with Viennese speaker manufacturer Mo Sound, who is already well-known for its spherical ceramic speakers, to craft a high fidelity speaker with an edgy design.
With the 3d printer we are able to shape and control the inside, the outside and the density of the speaker to get the best sound possible. Starting with the spherical shape we added a bass reflex tube to reach lower frequencies and switched to the edgy design for easier handling while maintaining the sound characteristics of the sphere.
Now we can offer a high fidelity speaker system, designed and handcrafted in Vienna, at a competitive price! The speakers are available in black, white, opaque, yellow, purple, pink, red and green. The material used for the case is PLA, a biodegradable thermoplastic.
