BURKART FURTENBACH

BURKART FURTENBACH, Albert Pattermann

29.9.–6.10.2018

The objects that surround us reflect how we live our lives. And when you lead an uncommon life, uncommon objects are required. Two individuals to whom this applies are the designers Hanna Burkart and Philipp Furtenbach. Every two months, they move into a new living space, often setting up shop in places that are all but hospitable at first glance. The next stop on their wanderings: the workshop of Vienna’s handbag manufactory Albert Pattermann, established in 1931. The two will have the opportunity there, as part of the Passionswege, to witness all steps of production and fashioning at first hand. Bringing with them some authentic Tyrolean suede, which is not easy to work with because of its thickness, they will meet the bagmaker and new owner Alexander Rippka, who recently brought from the back courtyard the long-established workshop on Kaiserstraße, its wealth of patterns, and the experience the founder’s son has with producing leather fashion accessories.
