„I... started to collect textiles more seriously in the 1980s, yet I never really had the money or the time, so it was a slower process than sourcing books. I was mostly buying from markets, dealers, and auctions. Textiles were, and still are to some degree, our most undervalued cultural product. The problem with buying them is not finding them at the right price; it’s more about finding them at all, since so many had been considered mere rags.“ Seth Sieglaub
Balancing on the edge of design, crafts, art and decoration Wiener Times fabricate objects of use with a distinct, elegant style yet edgy. The emphasis is on textiles.
The pieces are all created with an intense focus on the crafted detail and are actively questioning and pushing the lines between abstraction and function.
Wiener Times are Susanne Schneider and Johannes Schweiger.
