Stillfried Wien is a design gallery and Austria’s new cultural embassy in New York. The main feature bridging the gap between past and present is the suspended ceiling. Its pattern bows to the iconic Thonet bent-wood chairs in Vienna coffee houses. This time around it is scaled up, CNC-milled, shimmering gold and guiding the gaze with its multiple vantage points. A few pieces of bespoke sales furniture made from solid oak share a distinct cross-brace as common DNA. Bell jars highlight and protect very precious pieces. The stained hardwood floor and long brick wall create a warm atmosphere.
