ACF London Design Showcase: The Wiener Silber Manufactur

24 September – 31 December 2013 | Austrian Cultural Forum London

The ACF London celebrates the opening of a new Design Showcase. Curated by Marion Friedmann, this ongoing display and exhibition series will feature works by Austrian designers and present some of the country’s best contemporary design as well as the companies and stories behind it.

The Wiener Silber Manufactur (Vienna Silver Manufacturers) was founded in 1882 during the ‘Ringstrasse’ period of 19th-century Vienna, and relaunched in 2008. They produce luxury, handcrafted, historic and contemporary silverware. An impressive archive of designs, including collaborations with movers and shakers of the Wiener Werkstätte and avant-garde art movements in Austria, have contributed to the innovative and unique quality of their designs.
