Markterei in the old Post office – A neighborhood market for Vienna


The Markterei opened its doors at the end of 2015 as a temporary market in a heritage-protected rooms of a former Post office known as the Alte Post. Its intent was to support small food producers, cooks and local manufacturers by creating a marketplace where they could sell their products directly. A sudden workshop was convened to design and build the furniture and interior of the Markterei with the help of others. From this, the Markterei-Furniture edition was born. The flexible elements can be extended, converted and combined to fit their intended use.
