Crafted in Vienna - Vienna Makers
With the rising awareness of production processes and cycles comes an increased desire for co-creation and quality as well as a trend towards local production and consumption. As a result of urbanisation, the city is being reclaimed as a manufacturing location. Creative professionals are seizing this opportunity using the tools of traditional trades: Old local shops, workshops, ateliers and factories become production sites for premium furniture, clothing, lifestyle objects and other consumer goods.
The new makers are creating interdisciplinary partnerships in order to share infrastructures, to experiment with proven materials and innovative technologies and to save resources. Using unique sales concepts for products that are often made-to-measure, the customers are acknowledged in their support for rediscovered craftsmanship. The city becomes a vital location for production and networking.
"Crafted In Vienna. Vienna Makers.“ invited everyone to develop creative ideas at the critical points of the value chain beyond mainstream consumerism.
