The company J. & L. Lobmeyr has been working with the material glass for almost 200 years and continues until this day to rely on handcrafted perfection in creating its chandeliers and other lighting objects, its hand-blown and hand-cut crystal, and decorative glass. Starting from the Lobmeyr tradition of personalising glass objects with engraving or decorating them with eloquent patterns or ‘paintings’, the German designer Mark Braun has realised a series with the emphasis on water on the one hand, and glass on the other: two substances that are at least strongly related visually. Using the copper wheel engraving technique, archetypical water carafes especially designed for this project have been decorated with the outlines of Austrian lakes, rivers, and glaciers: for Mark Braun the sum total of these makes up the symbol of the essential wealth of everyday life. The installation ‘Reichtum’ [Wealth], also the title of the presentation, stages the carafes filled with original spring water!
The PASSIONSWEGE format, a core component of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, brings designers together with Vienna shops and manufacturers with on-the-spot experimental projects and interventions.
The resulting installations are all on show from 1.10. to 10.10. during normal opening hours in the business premises. A special reception takes place on the PASSIONSWEGE evenings in the presence of the designers.
The VIENNA DESIGN WEEK Passionswege are supported by the
Vienna Chamber of Commerce
