Just a few steps from the MuseumsQuartier, barely removed from the chaos of the Mariahilferstrasse, lies Habari, a haven of tranquility that specializes in African art and design. A 720 square meter showroom spans two floors, displaying an impressive range of furniture, home accessories, textiles, jewelry and much more. The name “Habari” comes from a Swahilian phrase that translates to: “Do you have something to tell? Tell, what's new?” Indeed, this massive store is likely to give you quite a bit to talk about, as no fewer than 28 African nations are represented. When we visited, there were some extraordinary limited-edition pieces like the chair made of cow-horn by Senegalese artist Babacar Niang, as well as more proliferated items like the ceramic espresso cups from South Africa, or the tablecloths from Zimbabwe. Owners Lore Sander and Werner Pilz are meticulous about the quality and individuality of every piece that they sell. Although they have their trusted local contacts, Sander and Pilz make frequent trips to Africa to discover new artists and rekindle old friendships. In supporting local talent in traditional African villages, Habari always makes every effort to ensure that artists and designers are fairly compensated for their work.Show lessRead more
