Lobmeyr Experimental Sweet Factory
For the Vienna Design Week 2013, we've been invited to take part of the Passionwege project which pairs established Viennese companies with international young designers to create an installation or products together. We teamed up with renowned crystal manufacturer J & L Lobmeyr.
The similarity between making crystal and making sweet, as well as our wish to make something accessible for people who would not usually come into this kind of shop, led us to the installation of a sweet factory in Lobmeyr showroom featuring live candies making.
As tools and inprints we had a selection of Lobmeyr crystal pieces, like Adolf Loos glasses, and used them directly on the sugar. We produced a collection of lollies and candies available for 1€ each. They were at the same time the most accessible Lobmeyr experience, an ephemeral luxury pleasure and a surprising perspective on the amazing Lobmeyr collection.
