Southern lifestyle, the eternal summer retreat. Ducks, swans, and other waterfowl calmly making their rounds. All this is Millstatt am See in Brigittenau. Seriously! With the coffee that they originally produced for their own hotel (Villa Verdin), which combines the robust body of an Italian espresso with the refinement of an Austrian mokka and is produced from 100% organically-grown Arabica beans, the brothers Michael and Thomas Helml are bringing Carinthian joie de vivre to Vienna’s 20th district (and, more specifically, to the Festival Headquarters on Sachsenplatz) for ten days.
Café, Caffè, Coffee. However one twists and turns it, the pop-up café of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is being presented again this year as a Wiener Melange that combines elements with very different origins: Furniture made by TREWIT (Upper Austria) and designed by the exhibition designer of the Festival Headquarters Robert Rüf (Vorarlberg) meets the finest Caffè vom See (Carinthia). The furniture can be tested in the relaxed atmosphere of the café.
24.9.–3.10., daily 11am–8pm
