DESIGNER

Wolfgang Joop

 

DESCRIPTION

Wolfgang Joop's design is inspired by his characteristic fascination with the tension between naturalism and the stylistic. In his own inimitable fashion he transforms what can be toxic or poisonous into acceptable, inviting forms.

The ensemble is reminiscent of the grandiose baroque tableware that was used to enhance celebrations and the pleasures of the table. It also serves a dual function, for the individual mushrooms are not only eye-catching pieces but also serve as salt and spice pots—each is a container fit to conceal items both harmless and hallucinatory.

 

About Wiener Silber Manufactur:

In 1882, Alexander Sturm, a trained gold- and silversmith, founded what is today Wiener Silber Manufactur in Vienna. By the turn of the century the silversmiths created objects for the intellectual elite that favored the simple lines of the Wiener Werkstätte.

After the Second World War, the manufacturer became involved with avant-garde again and partnerships with luminary designers and architects lasted until it closed its doors in 1982. It was the vision of an innovative tradition of service that inspired Georg Stradiot to found the Vienna Silver Manufacture in 2008. Today the company revives masterpieces from their collection of 11,000 drawings dating to 1882, as well as paves new roads in the production of silver with artists such as Erwin Wurm and Zaha Hadid.

Wiener Silber Manufactur uses a special alloy that contains 94% by mass of silver. Sterling silver, by comparison, only contains 92.5% of silver.
