The former K&K purveyor to the court is well-known all over the world for glass culture and light design. Nowadays the glass-empire focuses besides tradition on creations of young Austrian designers.
In 1823 the glass business Lobmeyr was founded, located at the Kärntnerstraße. In the meantime the factory as well as the sublime store are operated by the family in 6th generation. Their clientele includes among others Queen Elisabeth II as well as Elton John. Until nowadays at Lobmeyr’s are the different ways of processing and creating glass explored to embrace their magic. Besides tradition – chandeliers and mouth blown carafes – Lobmeyr is very much involved with the young Austrian design scene. Brilliant young designers like the Viennese Lucky.D or the duo Polka have created bowls and carafes for Lobmeyr. The designer Miki Martinek was awarded in 2007 with the Adolf Loos State Award for Design for her mouth blown Lobmeyr wine glass made from Musselin glass. www.lobmeyr.at
