Graphic designer Nela opened her petite gem of a store Volta in April 2014. It is located at the base of Berggasse, in an area that has experienced a renaissance with the recent opening of a new university building nearby, and just around the corner from the Servittenvierten, a popular dining destination. Nela arranges her store with all the lovely well-designed and minimal everyday objects that she reads about in online blogs. Much like the modernists, Nela loves objects that celebrate the materials they are made from. Everything that makes it into Volta must first undergo Nela’s fine toothed comb - in other words only if the product demonstrates good craftsmanship, is made from simple honest materials and can boast a minimal design, does it make it onto the shelf. These products range from fine cast-metal bottle openers to gorgeous woven rugs in simple patterns, wooden cutting boards and rolling pins that call out to be touched, to enamel bowls and dishes to artisan light bulbs and everything in between. In need of an original gift? Most of Volta’s hand-picked products aren’t readily available anywhere else in Vienna.Show lessRead more
