The famous MQ seating

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, 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 MG seating that was given the name Enzi after the authorized signatory of the MuseumsQuartier at the time, Daniela Enzi.

In 2005, the cult furniture was even awarded the Adolf Loos National Prize for Design. The MQ seating has since undergone several transformations, the Enzis becoming the Enzos, and later the Viena model. The color of the MQ seating is usually determined by a public online vote, with the colors having impressive names such as Mermaid or Candy Shop Pink. As ambassadors for Vienna and the MuseumsQuartier, the MQ seating also goes on trips throughout Europe.
