The former K&K purveyor to the court is well-known all over the world for glas culture and light design. Nowadays the glas-empire not only focuses on tradition, but also on the creations of young Austrian designers.
In 1823 the glas business Lobmeyr was founded, located in the Kärntnerstraße. Today the factory as well as the sublime store are operated by the family in 6th generation. Their clientele includes Queen Elisabeth II as well as Elton John. Lobmeyr is know for exploring the different ways of processing and creating glas to embrace its 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 with the Adolf Loos State Award for Design in 2007 for her mouth blown Lobmeyr wine glas made from Musselin glas.www.lobmeyr.at
