WIENER SILBER MANUFACTUR, VIENNA
Wiener Silber Manufactur produces masterpieces from their collection of 11,000 drawings, dating back to the 19th century. This archive includes works by Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, Otto Prutscher and Oswald Haerdtl. Continuing their long-standing tradition in supporting and collaborating contemporary art and design, recent editions include: world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid, Austrian artist Erwin Wurm, recognized contemporary designer Ted Muehling, Tomás Alonso and many more.
The Viennese manufacture was originally founded by Alexander Sturm, a trained gold and silversmith, in 1882. Over the last 100 years, the company furnished the Imperial Court, the Vienna aristocracy with meticulously crafted cutlery and flatware. The silversmiths greatly supported the designers of the Wiener Werkstätte to realize their artistic visions in this new medium. The history, cultural identity and iconic archive of 19th and 20th century designs led to its revival of what is today called Wiener Silber Manufactur, in 2008.
