The products of the Vienna Silver Manufactory have stories to tell: of
bourgeois table culture during the era of the “Ringstrasse”, of courtly pomp, but also the dawning of the modern language of forms in the first third of the twentieth century. They are fashioned with extremely high fine silver content, which not only increases their highly assessed material value, but also has an anti-oxidising effect: “suitable for dishwashers”, as is stated on the website of the old established firm.

People who know Tomás Alonso’s work – often executed in simple wood, they strike one as light, three-dimensional sketches – will hardly associate him with Viennese silver. So this collaboration is all the more fascinating – Alonso approaches it with the “functionality of the pattern” in mind: a plain tea service with fluted pattern on the underside of the set and the upper side of the tray, both interlocked
with each other. An ensemble that simultaneously combines harmony with wilful originality.
