Enzis in the MuseumsQuartier
The MuseumsQuartier opened in 2001. It is amongst the biggest cultural areas in the world, and has developed into a regular oasis of culture. The MuseumsQuartier is a popular place to meet, especially in summer. An important contribution to this is made by the colorful outdoor furniture called Enzi, which invites you to relax in the inner courtyard. In 2002, the Viennese architecture group PPAG was commissioned by the MuseumsQuartier to produce ideas for the design of the inner courtyard. The result was the now familiar Enzis, named after the authorized signatory of the MuseumsQuartier at the time, Daniela Enzi.
Until 2010, the Enzis appeared each year in a different color, from pistachio green to candy shop pink. Every winter, ice palaces were built using the Enzis. In 2005, the cult furniture was even awarded the Adolf Loos National Prize for Design. As most of the furniture was destroyed in a fire in the winter of 2009, a new generation of the furniture was added in the summer of 2010 in the form of the Enzos. The third generation was launched in the summer of 2013 and is now called MQ Furniture. As ambassadors for Vienna and the MuseumsQuartier, the Enzis also go on trips throughout Europe.
