2018. April 25.

What are the similarities among a unique candle, architecture and jewellery making? It seems that there is nothing in common, they are completely different for the first sight. If you think that each form can be a way of self-expression and each material can give an extra meaning to the creation, then we will find ourselves in candle and jewellery shops in downtown Vienna in the 80s. These beautiful stores were designed by the famous Austrian architect Hans Hollein. Just like the other star architects from my blog series, Hollein also dreamt of a smaller scale than the stores: he designed jewelleries, watches and other objects as well.
