Designer stool

Creative recycling in Vienna

Home and Jewelry

TrashDesignManufaktur makes products from electrical waste and discarded appliances. The stool was once a washing machine drum. The washing machine door is given a sandblasted pattern to turn it into a bowl. Visitors to TrashDesignManufaktur are also amazed by necklaces made from mobile phone buttons and keychains made from memory chips.

The designers and artists of Gabarage also make the useless usable again. Here, old film strips become lamps, the sofa was once a rubbish bin, and parts of a broken shuttlecock are now earrings. The shop Auferstanden features lots of fashion, jewelry, personal items and furniture. Even old skis find new purpose here again.

Fashion and bags

Young designer Julia Cepp returns discarded textiles to the value creation chain. Her label mija t. rosa offers several models made of fabric remnants and recycled textiles (available at S/GHT und artup). The Viennese label Steinwidder has dedicated itself entirely to the topic of "Remade Fashion". Anita Steinwidder produces her collections from used clothing, which is cut, torn and re-arranged.

The shop Glanz&Gloria sells the above-mentioned labels mija t. rosa and Steinwidder along with clothes by km/a: Jackets and dresses made from 1960s parachutes and coats made from discarded army blankets.

Cloed Priscilla Baumgartner presents her label Milch at the Y5 Vienna - Showroom for Fair Fashion on Yppenplatz. She buys discarded men’s clothing, which she washes, cuts and combines into new creations (also available at artup). Recycling is a trend for bags as well: The Viennese label kontiki fabricates robust bags made of recycled bike tires (available at Ozelot, artup and Glanz&Gloria).
