Certain of her creations which, like Softwood, come very close to being art, have been exhibited all over the world through her collaborations with galleries in London, Chicago and São Paulo.
She is artistic director of the Jacques Durand Occhiali eyewear brand and also has her own collection, Veronika Wildgruber Eyewear.
Veronika Wildgruber is inspired by craftsmanship and production methods. She loves to approach design by way of materials.
Her aim is to create simple, surprising objects.
