The designer and interior architect Ulrike Nachbargauer tackled the historical heritage of the Vienna Burgtheater. She made a piece of furniture out of the stage boards that were laid after the post-war reunification and used until 2011. This was put on show in the setting of the Burg’s breathtaking foyer. The project conveys how obsolete objects or materials can be reused or upgraded for new contexts. The table, enhanced with one or two exclusive autographs, is the embodiment of a successful form of upcycling.
