Wamp Vienna showcases the best handcrafted design of the region
While it is a showcase celebrating diversity, the fair also gives an opportunity to observe the similar questions designers are dealing with across borders. As a teaser for the fair, we've collected examples of how Wamp designers use wood to create a wide range of objects.
Eco-heart is a clever and health-friendly project from Slovakia. The toothbrushes made from 100% eco-friendly material are just as good for the user as for the environment. Featuring a minimal design of bamboo handle combined with fun coloured bristles, Eco-heart is a cool and unexpected addition to any design-driven bathroom.
Polish company WellDone goes beyond designing and selling objects; they are backed by a foundation supporting the unemployed who manufacture the products. Born as a joint project of various institutions and countries, the company produces fun but functional household objects designed by young professionals. For Wamp, they will not only bring their products, but organise an open workshop to awaken community spirit.
Local designer Boscoduro also works with wood, marrying the material with unexpected application forms. The Grappalino collection for example features shot “glasses”, suitable for serving grappa, or other strongly concentrated alcoholic beverages. Boscoduro’s wood designs are raw and look like only minimal intervention was made to achieve the object’s final shape.
Verebet is a young Hungarian company specialising in custom-made, recycled furniture. Their portfolio includes everything that can be made from wood from larger furniture to kitchen accessories. Fusing traditional carpentry with contemporary design-language, Verebet offers unique solutions and fulfils unique wishes with great attention to craftsmanship.
Wamp Vienna will run on 27 June at MuseumsQuartier
