Tomás Alonso & Wiener Silber Manufactur: At Vienna Design Week you can see the results of this collaboration. Spanish-born designer Tomás Alonso will be showing a silver tea-set created for Wiener Silber Manufactur, a traditional highly-skilled Viennese silver producer. Tomás has focused on the 'functionality of the pattern', creating a plain tea service with fluted pattern on the bottom of the pieces and the upper side of the tray, allowing the pieces to interlock.

We are passionate about silver. The soft, shimmering white metal has accompanied humankind for thousands of years but it still inspires us anew each day: its charm and its character, its allure and the value it conveys, its style and its distinction. This can be felt fully in our products, because we love silver and live for it — and because we are masters of our craft.
