151109: Hofmobiliendepot – Möbel Museum Wien: Interior Design between the Wars – Viennese Furniture 1914-1941

Hofmobiliendepot – Möbel Museum Wien: Interior Design between the Wars – Viennese Furniture 1914-1941 Core house and Canadian “Viennese Interior Design” is often still underrated. Thanks to the exhibition at the Hofmobiliendepot curated by Eva B. Ottillinger this could change. A small range of international examples highlights the context of the Viennese scene. In the Austrian section, rosewood dressers and upholstered “Canadians” as well as the concepts of a worker’s apartment of the “Red Vienna” and housing designs by Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky’s “Kernhäuser” (core houses) with their cheap softwood furniture are presented. The collection, assembled by Siegfried Loos, Margot Fürtsch and Gabriele Lenz, not only focuses on case studies of apartments furnished between the 1910’s and 1930’s, but also on its commissioners and users. Family albums and correspondence between the craftsmen and the designers complement the biographical outlines. No attempt is made to hide the lifeless aura - due to the “Aryanisation”, emigration and the generally changed context - of the presented furniture with pseudo-authentic arrangements. What was ignored in the assortment of at that time completely new concept of “designer” apartments, was the fact during the First Republic an apartment was not meant to be flawless, but heterogeneous, yes, even contradictory, and influenced by coincidences - like its inhabitants.
