In 2021, we were invited to conceive several cushions for the show “Women Artists of the Wiener Werkstätte” at the MAK in Vienna. On this occasion, in the archives, we discovered a black and white photograph of pillows from the Wiener Werkstätte dating around 1925. Fascinated and intrigued by what these women were making, we began to imagine creating a series of “travel pillows” as an homage and to continue their research and production. The pillows convey a contemporary nomadic essence of our times while jazzing up every home. It is an interpretation of the pattern of the forgotten designer, using fabric from the present time.

For May Revue we took inspiration from a sketch by Maria Likarz (1893-1971), a designer working for the Wiener Werkstätte, and interpreted her drawing into a contemporary pillow. With a keen eye for detail, we dug through the vast world of ornamentation to broadcast both the spirit of the turn of the last century with the cultural heritage of the Wiener Werkstätte, with an alternative approach to challenging nowness.

The shell of the pillow is executed with fabrics by Kvadrat textiles, the inlay is filled with horsehair.
