Context Launches Art-Focused Walking Tour in Vienna

 

Good news for art fans in Austria: Context is expanding its program in Vienna with a new art and design tour led by experts in interior design, art history, and architecture. 

The tour takes on the common misperception that Vienna is known for traditional design by guiding travelers just south of the historical First district into Nebau. The walk is led by professors of design and architecture and by practicing designers in the Context network of local expert docents in Vienna.

The experience includes visits to some of Nebau’s trendiest designer shops and an inside look at what goes into the design. Throughout the walk, docents elaborate on the influence of the Czech and Hungarian borders on the influx of new ideas in design. Analysis of the emerging industrial design platform “Das Möbel” prompts discussion on the variation of styles by region. Other stops include the innovative Bakalowitz chandelier designers, and a visit to the two brothers of “Gebrueder Stitch,” where visitors will discuss hot topics such as sustainability and community involvement.

The Made in Vienna walk lasts two and a half hours and is available Tuesday to Sunday. Group walks are limited to six people, guaranteeing an intimate and exclusive experience. (For people who want something even more exclusive, though, private tours are also available.)
