In Dwell's June issue, we sat down with Anna and Michael Trubrig of New York design shop Stillfried Wien, which sells a trove of design from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and beyond. Here, check out some of the streamlined furniture and accessories featured in the store.
Stillfried Wien stocks furniture from Lichterloh, a furniture maker and vintage shop located in Vienna. Markus Pernhaupt’s pieces have a clear nod to the past but with modern adaptations, like this Burka daybed.
Michael Thonet’s bentwood café chair of 1859 is one of the most iconic furniture pieces to emerge from Austria. In 2013, Vienna-based designer Thomas Feichtner reinterpreted the design for Czech company TON, honoring the original production processes while introducing a molded-wood seat as a way to bridge contemporary and traditional furniture design.
Glassware manufacturer Lobmeyr’s past and present are represented in the shop by Adolf Loos’s 1931 design for Drinking Set No. 248.
The Red Dot Award–winning Flaye table by Jacob Strobel—for Austrian manufacturer Team 7—features a solid-wood top and leather detailing plus a sophisticated butterfly-leaf mechanism that extends its length by 39 inches in an effortless, streamlined motion.
Table landscapes were popular in the 18th and 19th centuries, and it’s this tradition that inspired Charlotte Talbot, a French designer who works in Konstantin Grcic’s Munich studio. She collaborated with Wiener Silber Manufactur, a silversmith established in Vienna in 1882, on a series of display pieces that juxtapose traditional silver with HI-MACS, an ultra-durable engineered surface.
Graz-based studio 13&9's Wood Light is supported by steel legs and illuminated by an LED bulb.
