SHOWROOM WIENER WERKSTÄTTE

A Dialogue with Michael Anastassiades

Wed, 06.10.2021–Sun, 02.10.2022

MAK – Museum of Applied Arts

More space for the Wiener Werkstätte (WW): in the room above the MAK Permanent Collection Vienna 1900, this famous institution takes center stage and is receiving a lot of attention thanks to the engagement of a contemporary artist with its wide range of products—furniture, textiles, wallpapers, and metalware. The London designer Michael Anastassiades has been invited to select exhibits from the MAK’s inventory and in particular he has had the opportunity of delving into the high-profile collection of WW expert Ernst Ploil.

Michael Anastassiades is primarily known as a designer of lighting fixtures, though he also works in many other sectors (glassware for J. & L. Lobmeyr and furniture for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna). In addition, he is active in exhibition and interior design. For the SHOWROOM WIENER WERKSTÄTTE he has also developed a special display in which he uses his own products and stylistic elements to create an astonishingly alienating setting for the WW exhibits.

Guest Curator/Exhibition Design: Michael Anastassiades, Designer
Curator: Anne-Katrin Rossberg, Curator, MAK Metal Collection and Wiener Werkstätte Archive
