KIM & HEEP (KR/DE) at Backhausen

Fr 1.10.–Sa 9.10.2010

Cocktail 04.10.2010 5pm

The firm Backhausen, founded in 1849 and former purveyor to the court continues today in masterly fashion to bridge the gap between tradition and contemporary design. The design duo KIM & HEEP were particularly fascinated by the factory in the Waldviertel: thousands of threads being wound, arranged according to colour, individually controlled, and woven in; everything in motion, vibrating, shaking, dancing. This poetic transformation in which threads become fabric is usually hidden from us but is palpable in the major installation ‘GENESIS’ created by KIM & HEEP for the Backhausen showroom. KIM & HEEP were also inspired by Backhausen’s new recycling line Returnity® – the dance strikes up anew.

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
