Say Say Say, Inc. is a modern design laboratory based in the MuseumsQuartier, Vienna and Hell’s Kitchen, New York.
We use the codes, sensations, and objects of the present and past to transform them into new visual possibilities and future design languages.
A multisensory combinatory play.
Poétique and Pop.
Say Say Say, Inc. was founded in 2011 by Austrians Jutta Wacht and René Poell. The design duo already met in the 1990’s but it was that special day back in Paris in 2005, in a Café lined with frenetic seventies wallpapers, when they had a ‘Charles and Ray Eames moment’ and knew that they would work together in the future.
Say Say Say, Inc. is interested in unusual aspects of reality and is searching for new perspectives of the internal and future nature of objects and images, which are moving between sensuality and logic, aesthetics and technology, pop culture and philosophy.
Creative Director and
Jutta studied Design at École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (EnsAD) in Paris and Visual Communication and Fashion Design in Vienna.
Prior to founding Say Say Say, Inc., Jutta has worked with Intégral Ruedi Baur in Paris and Alex Wiederin at Buero New York in NYC where she created concepts and design for cultural institutions, magazines, museums and fashion clients.
Jutta is also the art director for „EIKON—International Magazine for Photography & Media Art“, the founding partner at Digitale Kultur OG, and publisher as well as creative director of the seminal magazine Periodikum.
Creative Director and
René studied Architecture at the University of Technology in Vienna. After a brief visit to Ceramics Design School in the 1990’s, he learned how to code and completed an apprenticeship as a precision mechanic and was later trained as an electronics engineer.
René is at home between art and technology. With a true inventor soul, he also designs furniture and is founding partner at Digitale Kultur OG.
