Lead Designer, Franz Viegener
With more than 35 years of experience in the plumbing industry and a minor education in art, Josef Moskovic strategically applies elements of design and technology in the creation of faucet styles that defy industry norms. He likens himself a “product developer with design intuition”, and he’s been working with the team at Franz Viegener for more than 10 years; turning his napkin and notebook sketches into award-winning designs.
His strength is his ability to push both the mechanical and design aspects of the Franz Viegener collections. The division in Buenos Aires he heads prides itself on its hand-craftsmanship, rather than mass production. Being 5,600 miles away from the Franz Viegener factory is sometimes a challenge, and there are some of cultural and social differences, yet nothing has impeded Josef’s ability to design what he has wanted.
Josef’s passion about his work is summed up best in this way; when asked which collection is his favorite – he replied, “That’s like asking a parent which of their children is their favorite!”
