studio VIE was founded in 2013. It’s responsible for the Logo and Corporate Identity of the Take-Festival for Independent Fashion and Arts among many other projects. When I drove to their office, located in Vienna, I didn’t expect such a great interior design. The rooms were flooded with light and wooden bookshelves, which looked more like art than what they really were, covered the walls while presenting their work. Big windows, high ceilings and the clean, scandinavian vibe inside made me feel comfortable. I love clean no-nonsense interiors that don’t over-clutter but let you relax your eye and focus on the fundamental. Anouk and Christian welcomed me with a smile and an obligatory cup of coffee.
Diversity, a word used in many various contexts – multiculturalism or ethnic diversity, cultural diversity, functional diversity, diversity in a political sense. All these words have specific meanings but focus on respect and tolerance for people of different backgrounds, people with impairments or disabilities and also encourage the understanding of interculturality.
On the 27th of August the British Pop Up Store at Millennium City in Vienna closed it’s doors – forever? We don’t know yet. I discovered some new British designers and had the chance to taste British jams and sweets. This catapulted me back to my Masters Studies in the UK some years back. I still remember the rain, the short skirts and weird carpeted flooring in clubs and the crazy rush hours at Piccadilly Circus (circus is the right name in this case).
