LOOK BACK on Milan
Alliance of Designers & Artisans

The Design Week, the Salone del Mobile, the Fuorisalone and numerous Design-Acts turned Milan into the undisputed metropolis of design. In the midst of these events, Wiener Silber Manufactur had the opportunity to show off on two top locations.

"Doppia Firma" was the title of a show of the Michelangelo Foundation that targeted on the dialog between design and artisan excellence. 19 international manufacturers were invited to exhibit their works, including the Bar-Set by Tomás Alonso that embodies best the creative exchange between the designer and the craftsman.

Using the motto „Pleasure & Treasure“, the Austrian chamber of commerce featured a top-class selection of design products in the former royal waiting hall of Milan’s central station. The curators selected from the collection of Wiener Silber Manufactur the limited edition „landscape“ by Charlotte Talbot. It is a particularly successful example of innovative design-artisan-cooperation and of the alliance of silver forged by hand and the industrial high-tech material HI-MACS.
