Markterei in a former post office – A neighbourhood market for Vienna
The Markterei opened its doors at the end of 2015 as a temporary market in heritage-protected spaces of a former post office, known as the Alte Post. Its intent was to support small food producers, chefs and local manufacturers by creating a marketplace where they could sell their products directly. The Sudden Workshop came together to collaboratively design and build the furniture and interior for the Markterei in situ.
The outcome of this was a 6-pieces Markterei-Furniture edition, of which all are flexible elements that can be extended, converted and combined in order to fit their intended use. Markterei Furniture Series: stool, bar table, two stackable modules, bench and market table.
