One week ago 9 minutes changed a lot – 9 minutes that felt way longer – 9 minutes that we only knew 24 hours later that it have been 9 minutes.

Whenever I step out of my house I see the growing fields of flowers, candles and notes – one of the busiest places in Vienna has become quiet and still. There are many people around coming to say goodbye and to remember. Honouring people they probably didn´t know but whom we will remember for a long time.

“The quiet sense of something lost” – Tennyson

grieving and remembering in viennaThe Viennese is often called a bit rude and unfriendly, a true testament of the cliché of the “Wiener Grant” (the grumpy Viennese) but in times like these, we move closer together (while staying socially distanced of course). Sharing smiles, helping out relighting candles and just try to be a bit nicer overall.

Its been a quiet week here around the Schwedenplatz and will probably stay still for a while.

But there also have been reasons to celebrate, not only the countless heroes of Monday night but also a new president and fabulous vice-president of the USA. And today we learned that one of the Covid19 vaccines is in the very last stages of being approved. On a more personal note, I booked a rental car for my next Scottish adventure in the upcoming summer.

Life goes on, it´s on us to stand against any kind of racism and fascism and reach out a hand to people in need.

A conceptstore by and for Austrian Designers in Vienna.

 

There is a new concept store in town and a really special one! The “Wiener Design Pop Up” is organized by two Viennese designers, Edita Rosenrot and Frl Else Vintage.

Small artisan designer often sells their work on markets and events but when more or less every bigger event is cancelled they had to creative and find a solution to still be able to earn their income. After a few weeks of cruising around the 7th district looking for some empty shops, they found the perfect one on Westbahnstraße 7. Cosy but still big enough to house a whole collection of Austrian designers.

From jewellery to upcycled lamps and fashion to gin – there is something for everyone in the shop, And in the upcoming four months the designers will change around and it would be the best idea to visit the Wiener Designer Pop Up often and check out the changing assortment.
