Visiting 2015 DOY Martin Lesjak in Austria

I had the fantastic opportunity to be in Austria last week, visiting with Contract’s 2015 Designer of the Year Martin Lesjak who leads the architecture firm INNOCAD as well as the design firm 13&9 Design with his partner Anastasia Su. Here are some visual highlights of my time in Vienna and Graz, visiting Lesjak and his friends and colleagues.
