The panel discussion of the wiener SITZgruppe turned out to be a successful encounter of craftspeople with public and designers from other fields. Besides keeping traditional materials in view, it tried most of all to look ahead as well. In focus were opportunities for the traditional craft of upholsterers and decorators. Experts from different sectors addressed the topics of sustainable and innovative material – whether spring core with horsehair covering, or 3-D print. The public was invited to a “sit-in” to test the differences.
