In 1921, Kommerzialrat Johann Braun founded the furniture manufacturer BRAUN at the foot of the impressive Lockenhaus in Burgenland, eastern Austria. Today, the company is one of the most important furniture businesses in Austria. Having started with school furniture, BRAUN shifted the focus to the production of seating furniture and tables made of solid wood, bentwood, wood laminates and steel tubing in 1975.
BRAUN Lockenhaus is one of a very few companies in Austria being experts in the area of the old craft of bending wood. Bentwood furniture impresses with high resilience and a long-life capacity. With its exclusive bentwood furniture collection, BRAUN Lockenhaus manufactures tomorrow’s design classics.
