Sponti vacation

In 2006, Ottmar Hörl developed today's Sponti gnome. Ever since, the figure has offered tongue-in-cheek provocation, called for playful disobedience and went off to many different private spaces scattered all over the globe.


What’s your Sponti doing this summer? Enjoying the view from the balcony, relaxing in the living room, or going on a hike? Post a holiday picture of your Sponti and take a look at our interactive world map to find out where other Spontis have settled.
