Wiener Silber Manufactur

    The origin of the Wiener Silbermanufactur goes back to the year 1882, when a silver and goldsmith named Alexander Sturm founded his own silver manufacturing company. During the latter years of the 19th century, Strum's manufacturer produced a prolific amount of silver goods for Vienna's upper-middle classes, combining expert craftsmanship with stylistic innovation. Sturm's love of new ideas found its full expression with the emergence of the Wiener Werkstätte movement, and his company flourished before ceasing production in the early '30s. After the second World War, the company had a revival period thanks in part to Werkbund architect Oswald Haerdtl, whose groundbreaking designs helped establish a new era in Viennese silver production. In 1988 however, Alexander Sturm's company was dissolved. With the aim of combining over one hundred years of tradition with modern innovation, Georg Stradiot founded the Wiener Silbermanufactur in 2008. Stradiot obtained the production rights from Sturm's former company, along with an archive of over 11,000 design sketches and even some of the original tools. In November 2009, the Silvermanufactur's boutique opened its doors on the Spiegelgasse. True to its philosophy of fusing the best of old and new, the store offers silver creations from up-and-coming young creatives like Katja Klopf and Karl Schmidt, as well as timeless classics from established names like Josef Hoffman and Otto Prutscher.
