‘Wien Spielkarten’ playing cards by Studio Formafantasma
In 2012 six product designers from six different European nations were invited by the Vienna Tourist Board to submit proposals for a three-dimensional souvenir for the city. The winning proposal, ‘Wien Spielkarten’, “Vienna playing cards”, by Studio Formafantasma, has now been produced and is available in the Mak Museum Shop in Vienna.

The exhibition ‘Totem and Taboo’, which is currently taking place in Vienna in freiraum quartier21 of the INTERNATIONAL MuseumsQuartier Wien, examines the relationship between art and design.
It features works by contemporary artists and designers who work at the frontiers and crossovers of their respective disciplines. Treating art as a relative of design, the exhibition focuses on one-off pieces and limited edition items, which, just like artworks, are produced for exhibition purposes and sold within gallery spaces.
