Vienna Design Week came to visit Sofia Design Week providing a bunch of design objects from up and coming Austrian designers.

More of a performance than an exhibition, this temporary Vienna Design Week Embassy is a contemporary concept and interpretation of the ultra-Viennese typus of casual restaurant “Heuriger” [wine inn], where people would go to taste the new wine of the season, bring their own food and listen to traditional Viennese songs and talking about various things of life, all this in a space populated with design objects.

On commission of VIENNA DESIGN WEEK this “Heuriger” is realized by the architects Corina Binder and Suse Mayer [bindermayer]. on commission of Vienna Design Week 2011, which is to take place from 30 September to 9th of October.
