Wiener Werkstadt – Unique furniture of a young architecture, art and design scene

After finishing the furniture for Markterei, we continued our sudden workshop in the Alte Post for 7 more months. With the aim to create an open workshop, we initiated the Wiener Werkstadt by asking friends, architects, designers and artists to develop and build furniture together. The only guidelines were the sole use of a chop saw and the restriction to two formats of wooden planks. Based on this low-tech manufacturing approach, unique designs could be realised. Each design approach and their results are featured in the mostlikely sudden workshop book.
