Designer meet the collection

20. june 2014 - 02 .november 2014

The Kunstgewerbemuseum invited five design studios to deal with its collection: Daphna Laurens (NL), mischer’traxler (A), Loris & Livia (CH), Judith Seng (D) and Dechem (CZ). They received the commission to choose one object or an object group and to design an installation.
The design studios’ object selection was enriching and at the same time surprising.

Our result "Cuprum" will be exhibited until November.

award: we won the Be-open Young Talent Award ! We are super happy!

We are super happy that we won this great awarad. Especially as all the other shortlisted studios are very very good.

The jury which was comprised of shay alkalay (raw edges), giulio cappellini (art director of cappellini), giorgio galli (design director of timex group), sofia lagerkvist (front) and jay osgerby (barber & osgerby). they collectively commented on their decision stating:
the work of the ten shortlisted candidates is of exceptional quality, but we felt that mischer’traxler’s methods best reflect the spirit of this new, important design prize. matching experimental research and vanguard attitudes with industrial production, they clearly indicate how much further manufacturing can be developed from where it is now. their talent for introducing creative interaction into everyday objects and humanising every aspect of design reflects their incredible ability to synthesise the future of design.’

And we really love the trophy designed by barber & osgerby). It was heavy to bring back to Vienna, but it looks really nice in the studio.
