The third issue of OKOLO magazine is on travellers’ note since we went for a trip to the former imperial city of Vienna. Renowned for Art Nouveau, traditional crafts, architect Adolf Loos, gigantic schnitzels, and delicious coffee, the city prepared for us a series of unique encounters thanks to which we were able to form our own perspective of the Austrian capital. Thus, OKOLO Vienna Only brings a selection of articles, reports, editorials and photo essays that, in our opinion, deal with the most interesting places, people, and objects in Vienna. We found hidden masters and their crafts, young perspective designers, and passionate collector who preserve their treasures concealed in secrecy. The result is a monothematic magazine which, however, reflects all our interests thanks to the diversity of individual articles – this time, with a single exception, exclusively in the centre of the genteel city on the river Danube. You can find here reports from workshops of Carl Auböck, shoemaker Georg Materna and Thomas Posenanski, photo editorial from unique cycling collection of Michael Embacher, essay about Viennese utopian architects or short interview with Marco Dessí. Illustrated survey of Austrian design icons and guide for the traditional Viennese fashion is also included. And much more.
