The history of the Wiener Silber Manufactur began in the year 1882. It is a success story informed by passion for the material. A story that for a hundred years has consisted of two equal parts: traditional Viennese crafts and contemporary design. Cooperative ventures with Austrian and international artists and designers – not least within the Passionswege – have produced impressive collections, parts of which belong to the design canon. Also specialized in traditional crafts are Nadja Zerunian and Peter Weisz, who since 2014 have been working with families in Transylvania for the ERSTE Foundation Roma Partnership, helping them to revive the arts and crafts that ensure their livelihood. Last year, zerunianandweisz delighted visitors at the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK with their narrative assemblages. They themselves, in turn, were delighted by Zizi Jeanmaire quite recently, one of the most successful ballerinas of the 1950s: Her grace and gorgeously quivering feather costume open the pages to a tongue-in-cheek story during the Passionswege 2017, told by zerunianandweisz and the Wiener Silber Manufactur.
