• Répertoire	 Vienna
  • Returning to Vienna after having lived and worked as a graphic designer in Paris for the majority of her life, co-owner Mimi Hofmann opened Répertoire in November 2013.

With just a peek from the outside, one is immediately drawn in by the variety of colors and textures on display. According to Hofmann, Répertoire carries more… More info

  • Werkbank Vienna
  • Die Werkbank is a small, quaint shop with a big bold concept: handmade. That’s right, everything inside is handcrafted. The owner, Katharina, describes it as a little bird amongst the giant global brands or, in other words, as a space for young artisan designers to exhibit and sell their work. The name of the shop translates to "the work bench," reflecting its former life as the carpentry workshop of Katharina's father. And while the smell of… More info

  • Designqvist Vienna
  • Sandra Nalepka became familiar with Scandinavian design at a young age during frequent trips to her mother’s native Sweden and through the many objects brought back to their Austrian household. After working at a job that demanded much attention to spreadsheets and reports, Nalepka longed to base her profession on tangible objects. So in October 2011, she opened the doors of Designvist: a one-room storefront and information base that specializes… More info

  • Die sellerie Vienna
  • Die Sellerie is the creation of four young graphic designers who joined forces to realize a common dream. Patrick Bauer, Ulrike Dorner, Georg Leditzky and Andreas Posselt believed that there was something to the idea of running a store in which they sold their own handmade products. When a space on Vienna's bustling Burggasse became available, the idea became a reality. Roughly 80 percent of the Sellerie stock (wink, wink) is made up of handmade… More info

  • Mak designshop Vienna
  • The MAK Design Shop is a must for anyone interested in the miraculous world of design.

  • Wissenschaftliches kabinett Vienna
  • Wissenschaftliches Kabinett is a cabinet of curiosities; the toy box of a science and nature geek who has compiled artifacts and other paraphernalia that all carry the spirit of science, natural history and old-world exploration. Perhaps that is why this narrow enclave in the old city centre of Vienna has become a favorite for museums, artists seeking inspiration and serious collectors. Meanwhile, the store’s owner and writer of natural history… More info

  • Die glasfabrik Vienna
  • Glasfabrik is a material culture enthusiast's dream. It is housed in a former glass factory which dates to the period when this area served as Vienna's industrial district. The shop, which is associated with Lichterloh and Matsching's Antikkeller (Liebiggasse 4), operates as an antiques collective and offers a spectrum of pieces in a range of prices. It is comprised of two warehouses that look much as they must have years ago, with scarred… More info
