DESCRIPTION

The advent of espresso in the 1950s brought new life to Vienna's coffeehouse scene. Inspired by the light-heartedness of the Italian way of life, architect Oswald Haerdtl designed the interiors of numerous cafés in the style of the time, including the famous Arabia Espresso at Vienna's Kohlmarkt. The design of his cutlery reflects the positive, buoyant mood of the epoch. Its fine, deeply engraved fluting quotes from classical forms of decoration and is enriched by contemporary Italian influences.

 

About Wiener Silber Manufactur:
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 Werkstatte.

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.
