DESCRIPTION
 
„The Wiener Walzer“
The task for the „Regionals“ zones in the Coop Himmelb(l)au Heinemann Duty Free Shops Vienna in the new “Skylink” terminal of the Vienna Airport was to translate the topic “Vienna” into the design of a multifunctional furniture element so that it can be experienced by the travellers and allows them to symbolically connect the inside of the airport with the city.

Coop Himmelb(l)au Heinemann Duty Free Shops ViennaCOOP HIMMELB(L)AU’s concept is based on the Viennese waltz as a central Viennese theme that via state-of-the-art scripting software is translated into the third dimension. Points of interpretation were the movement in space created by the dance steps with its traditional right and left turns, its fast pace and especially the “floating” form of the dance. This created a dynamic, space-encompassing sculpture.

For the technical implementation again state-of-the-art technology was utilized. The monolithic spatial sculpture was milled from PU foam from data that were transferred directly from a 3-D-Model, coated with Polyurethane and finally varnished with gold paint as a reference to the important Viennese time of Art Nouveau.

As an additional dimension the medium sound is integrated in the design through the waltz “An der schönen blauen Donau“ (German for On the Beautiful Blue Danube) by Johann Strauss that in Austria is traditionally played at local festivities.
