Archetypes Collection

In May 2017, VIU opened its store of prescription glasses and sunglasses in Graz. A steel-blue wall presents the eyewear collections designed by Fabrice Aeberhard, the VIU Creative Director, in Switzerland. During Designmonat Graz, the store provides insights into the VIU Archetypes Collection. So far, VIU had been known for its hand-made eyewear in Italy, but since the summer of 2017, the Swiss label has also been offering glasses from the 3D printer. The innovative eyewear collection VIU Archetypes Collection is made of polyamide dust. Each model is customized for the client. On the basis of product images and the presentation of materials and prototypes, visitors to Designmonat Graz will be able to closely follow the individual work steps from the idea to the finished eyewear.

Scrambler, Tracker und Bobber

At Sun/Set/Star you can find cool denim fashion, timeless classics and high-quality shoes. For the two owners Stefan Kalch and Gerhard Fuchs the cornerstones of the exclusive product selection are quality and sustainability, identification and a story. The Graz-based motorcycle workshop Titan Motorcycles, which is run by Tom Possod and Michael Siebenhofer, perfectly matches their attitude: At Titan Motorcycles they rebuild old motorcycles which then leave the shop with a new design and a new personality. One of the models will be displayed at Sun/Set/Star during Designmonat Graz: the model Titan One which is based on a small Honda.

Enjoyment is a kind of art

The specialty shop Il Nascondiglio, Italian for “the hiding place”, brings a piece of Italy to Graz. Owner Irene Ofenheimer-Kober regularly visits the region around Lake Garda to personally select delicacies such as olive oil, quince jelly, jams and organic wine and provide them in her shop. Within Designmonat Graz, the southern ambience of the “hiding place” is complemented by a harmonizing painting of artist Elisabeth Pfniss. The painting can be seen on the back wall of the shop and, like all of the artist’s works, is dominated by intuitively chosen colors and an abstract aesthetic. In tune with the lovingly designed interior of Il Nascondiglio, the work transfers its viewers even more intensively into the Italian “region of pleasure”.

„eins“

Designer Raimund Gamerith regularly exhibits new objects in his studio, such as tables and armchairs, beds and cabinets, which he manufactures from local woods in the workshop attached to the studio. During Designmonat Graz he presents his latest product: the bench “eins”. The natural shape of the bench is not coincidental but it is made of one piece of wood. The designer exclusively uses expressive local wood. The different lengths and grains of the wood pieces as well as the different types of wood (nut, oak, ash, pear, apple, etc.) result in exciting wood paintings – thus nature becomes an inspirational design partner.

During Designmonat Graz, visitors to the design gallery can let themselves be surprised by the floating objects of the Swedish artist Simon Morris, who aesthetically combines levitation and design: LED bulbs or flower pots magically float in the air and the hand of the wall clock slides over the dial without touching it. The secret of the floating objects is a strong magnetic field that Morris skillfully plays with. The Graz-based experimental physicist Gernot Pottlacher is MuR’s guest and uses practical examples to demonstrate what levitation is about and to explain why things can actually float.

Musical Jewellery

Two blacksmiths who focus on custom-made products joined forces within the project of Hermine Pruegger: goldsmith and silversmith Hermine Pruegger knows how to design pieces of jewelry with multiple functions. She turns the diadem into a necklace or a ring into a pendant. During Designmonat Graz, in her studio, her extravagant unique pieces unite with the hand-made silver microphones of the native Romanian Emil Kindlein. With his unusual microphones, which bear names such as Bottle, Bullet or Spider, the musician, silversmith and artist carries on a long family tradition.

Within Designmonat Graz, Klammert focuses on the collection “The good life”. The collection was designed by the two designer brothers Christian and Michael Sieger; each piece is handmade and consists of the finest porcelain, partially gold plated.

Pony & Kleid

Already for the second time, GardeRobe, the exclusive second-hand shop of Marion Wahlhuetter, hosts the goldsmith and jewelry artist Elke Puercher during Designmonat Graz. GardeRobe offers versatile brand and designer fashion, among others also purses, shoes and accessories.

Especially for Designmonat, Elke Puercher from the label metamorph designed a mini-series, in which she reinterpreted fibulas and clasps under the motto “Solidarity”. When attached to clothes, these make – as desired by the one wearing it – a cohesive statement. The title of the collection “Pony & Dress” goes back to the duo “Bonnie & Clyde”, a true symbol of solidarity.

All objects are presented and also available from May 5 to June 2.
