Vienna Media News 08/2018 Fresh design wind in the city
The Edelstoff design market on September 15 and 16, 2018 will offer plenty of eye-catching alternatives to bland mass-market products. 150 designers from Austria and elsewhere will be showcasing their accessories, fashion collections, jewellery, product designs and artworks at the Marxhalle. The items on sale will mainly be out-of-the-ordinary pieces by independent labels rarely found in retail spaces. For anyone who has worked up an appetite after all that shopping: various street food companies will also be putting in an appearance at the Edelstoff design market.
From September 28–30, 2018 a select group of 50 ceramic artists from Austria and abroad will be showing off their products at the Ceramics and Porcelain in the Augarten event. Handcrafted single pieces, limited editions, intricate objects d’art, beautifully crafted porcelain figures, high-quality everyday crockery and luxury tableware are on sale inside and in front of the illustrious Augarten Porcelain Manufactory. Visitors can also watch the artisans at work painting the final pieces or join a guided tour to find out more about porcelain making and its long history in Vienna.
The MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art will host the international Blickfang design fair from October 26-28, 2018. Around 150 exhibitors including leading lights on the Viennese design scene will be showing off the hottest trends in furniture, lighting, fashion, jewellery and accessories. Visitors are free to inspect the beautifully designed products, available in a range of price categories, before committing to a purchase.
