Vienna Design Week Archiv
You are warmly invited to share my design journey at VIENNA DESIGN WEEK from 2010 to the present.
Let’s begin in the now!
Window display at Hartmann Wien, 1010 Vienna
Twenty years ago I discovered my love for the material Horn. I brought this back to life for the exhibition Design from the Alps in 2019. HORN HANDLES for timeless furniture were launched at Vienna Design Week.
A touch of natural elegance!
pouring the source of life
Water tasting and design launch at Stamm Concept Store, 1010 Vienna
Pure drinking water is one of the natural resources in Austria. Now it can be enjoyed in a form that does justice to its health and environmental value. I developed the Drinking Water Set BLAUES GOLD as a gift for the Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism. 1 Water Carafe + 2 Glass Tumblers, hand-blown Crystal Glass.
To your health!
contribute purposefully to everyday life
Give life a change
Experiential and dynamic action-reading at Riegelnik, 1080 Vienna
GIVE LIFE A CHANGE was my call to action: to include others in contributing purposefully to sustainable change and so to well-being for people. I designed a show case to reach people and chose words as my medium in the window of the printers.
I furnished it with custom-made text-wallpapers on the theme of the call. I invited other designers to showcase their projects in the event: to stimulate different ways of thinking and working together and to stimulate positive action in the heart of the community. Every month we added new projects to the window.
the mystery of lighting
Bloom, Seed, Completion
Product development Dotzauer Lighting, 1010 Vienna
The unanticipated chandelier collection was produced and presented with collaboration partner Dotzauer Decorative Lighting. Miki Martinek was supported in this cutting-edge production by Harry Spraiter. The new LED chandelier was a recognition and a response to movements in society.
Live in the light!
the values of diverse cultures
FLOW, INTO THE MIDDLE, EVOLVE

Let your soul swing free!
Communicate the design process
“design.caching“ and window displays in the Freihausviertel, 1040 Vienna
Enjoy Haute Couture sitting balls in everyday life. Eleven shops in the Freihausviertel, a district of Vienna, were invited to take part in a design game called “design.caching“ and in linked window displays. The challenging and innovative aspect of my design process was to share my design know-how as well as the know-how of the makers with the customers. My intention was to develop and support a sustainable design-making community.
Innovate through sharing!
Connecting positively with the past
BORN 1929, HOMMAGE to Franz Baumann, EDITION TIROL
Exhibition and talk at d.sign gallery, 1010 Vienna
Furniture collections to celebrate and honour design from the Alps. I experimented with how I could transform and re-present valued cultural artefacts across time to allow them to become re-integrated into the present. Continuity between the past and the present, re-affirming positive local values and contributing to a sense of well-being for the future.
Value your own culture!
a sense of home
Window-performance at Pregenzer Fashion Store WIEN, 1040 Vienna
Home furnishings knitted in Merino wool. To focus awareness on the qualities of textiles in giving a sense of home I created knitted blankets, cushions and stools.
Local experts in the field of fabrics like Veronika Persch’e were commissioned as equal partners.
Luxuriate in wonderful wool!
Taste your water
Water bar & window exhibition at Saint Charles Apothecary, 1060 Vienna
First things first! How good does your water taste? Do you really see what you are drinking? Carafe and award-winning glasses presented in a water-tasting bar with window exhibitions about the history of drinking glasses from the year 1700. Let’s think about what is essential in life; really see, taste and pay attention to water.
Appreciate the source of life!
