The sheared comb
The young Thomas Petz is again the last producers of goods made of horn. The only 26-year old entrepreneur has taken over the factory from his grandfather and learned from him. Combs, brushes (brush-making in cooperation with Norbert Meier!), Jewelry, spoons and many other horn items are part of his program.
The pleasure to deal with both companies, has Matylda Krzykowski, a Polish-born designer who grew up in Germany and now works in Maastricht. She is also known as a curator, stage designer and design blogger. She is an expert not only for products but also for telling their stories. All in all a very promising cooperation.

Rampelotto was born in Sterzing, Italy, studied jurisprudence at Leopold-Franzens-Universität, Innsbruck and in 1999 he moved on to the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, to study Industrial Design with Borek Sipek. During the course of his studies he developed the jewel box Plic which has been inventoried in the university’s study collection. After his graduation with Ross Lovegrove Patrick Rampelotto started work for EOOS Design in Vienna. Since 2009 he works as a free-lance designer for shop and furniture design, as well as fashion accessories.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
© Kollektiv Fischka/fischka.com, Mark Braun und Leonid Rath von J. & L. Lobmeyr, 2010
Mark Braun and J. & L. Lobmeyr at Gallery Libby Sellers
Braun's proposal for the series saw a water carafe, handcrafted by Lobmeyr, engraved with one of seven glaciers, seven [more] lakes or seven rivers from across the globe. The collaboration between Braun, Lobmeyr and Gallery Libby Sellers will include the addition of an eighth river - London's Thames - launched exclusively at the gallery in December 2011.
For Braun and Lobmeyr 'Fortune' takes on a different connotation: water is the luxury here, as while these international waterways cover 70 per cent of the planet's surface, they are a threatened resource. By engraving, etching and sandblasting images of these waters (as taken from Google Earth) onto the carafes, the Fotrtune series is frozen a moment in a torrent of change. The waterways were chosen for their fragility or importance. For example, Fortune: Lake Baikal has a connection to one of the largest freshwater sources; Fortune: Lambert Glacier shows the largest glacier in the Antarctic, which is slowly melting; Fortune: River Euphrates depicts an important lifeline for several surrounding countries; while Fortune: River Thames celebrates the pivotal role the river has played as a thoroughfare to London's prosperity. As Braun has said, 'We all know that this water will be the new gold.'
The numbered series, and exclusive River Thames carafe, make the perfect gift as each are signed and detail the name of the body of water, its size and the time the carafe took to engrave. A range of postcard images by graphic designer Anna Sartorius accompanies the series. The Fortune series was initiated as part of Vienna Design Week.

21er Haus Opening
The 21er Haus was built in 1958 by the Austrian architect Karl Schwanzer (1918-1975) as a pavilion or temporary showroom for the Universal Exhibition in Brussels. The architectural structure of the pavilion seemed to be floating. The building was conceived in the lightweight construction mode, [more] with its upper storey, measuring 40 by 40 metres, resting exclusively on four buttresses. In 1958, Schwanzer received the Grand Prix d’Architecture for his visionary and technologically innovative design. Fritz Wotruba was commissioned with the monumental figural relief to be installed in front of the pavilion. The building served as an exhibition hall for the Museum of Modern Art until its collection was moved to the Museum of Modern Art - Ludwig Foundation in Vienna’s new MuseumsQuartier in late 2001. The 21er Haus was finally incorporated into the Belvedere in the early summer of 2002.
The 21er Haus is to be understood as a place of artistic production, reception, and reflection. The focus is on Austrian art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and its embedding in an international context. The Belvedere’s holdings, which will be given a permanent presence in a specially designated part of the building, will serve as a basis for research and exhibition activities. Relying on the Belvedere’s collection as a starting point, the programme, with its various formats, is meant to build a bridge between the museum’s modern architecture and contemporary art, thereby pursuing multidisciplinary and socially analytical approaches. Thematically focused temporary displays and corresponding monographic positions will concentrate on the numerous and ever more significant interrelationships among artists.
The 21er Haus Logo, the communication design and the first publications are created by Christof Nardin/bueronardin, who is also responsible for the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK festival CI. The tradition, the beginning of the 20er Haus and the archtitecture inspired Nardin for the new design identity of the museum.
We are looking forward to this new start and the opening exhibition!
