SelfSightSeeing Company

Io Tondolo and Itshe Petz are designers, curators, and artists. Together, they run their design agency, SelfSightSeeing Company, with a focus on sustainable design and artistic design concepts involving users. For their projects, they develop unique furniture with a focus on reusing materials, their own fabric and wallpaper collections, light objects, and spatial installations.

As curators, they run “kulturfrische,” developing programming concepts for vacant spaces and connecting cultural programs with tourism in rural areas. With a residency program, they provide designers and artists the opportunity to work on projects in a peaceful rural setting.

As artists, they continue to work on their long-term project, itshe+io, a self-representation between business artistry and queer activism. In their works, they explore social issues through art-based research.

With their project “Absteige zur bĂ€rtigen Therese,” a queer hostel in the Alps, itshe+io are promoting queer spaces and acceptance in rural areas.

They are guest lecturers on Social and Sustainable Design at FH Joanneum and on Performance Art at the Pedagogical University of Graz.
