Woka

    WOKA founder Wolfgang Karolinski has always loved the work of design greats like Adolf Loos, Otto Wagner, Kolo Moser and other members of the Wiener Werkstätte community. It was this appreciation for design that prompted Wolfgang to start his own lamp collection after studying at the University for Applied Arts Vienna. At some point in the '70s, a twist of fate brought him into contact with a furniture collector who wanted to sell his vast inventory of Wiener Werkstätte lamps. Not needing to be asked twice, Karolinski acquired the collection and obtained a license to reproduce the originals. Today, WOKA is a specialty store that sells exclusive, limited-edition lamps to customers from Vienna and abroad. Notable clients include the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Tom Ford. Because tradition often works best when combined with innovation,  WOKA's creative director is a young designer named Christiane Büssgen (Design Academy Eindhoven, IED Rome). Her ideas are helping to reinvigorate the design trends from one of the most famous periods in Vienna's cultural history.Show lessRead more
