art basel collectors lounge

Vienna Tourist Board, 2016

In 2015 EOOS was re-invited to design the Collectors Lounge for the Art Basel 2016.

The design of the coffee house lounge interprets visual elements of the Viennese “Würfeluhr”, a classic cube-shaped clock model. The silver, gray, and black color scheme was informed by the different contexts where the clock is found in Vienna’s cityscape; the specific color of the clock body depends on the respective color of the masts. The luminous surface of the clock face is translated in the space on table and wall surfaces. Large mirrors reference one of the key elements of a Viennese coffee house. A special edition of coffee cups and tote bags are decorated with graphic elements of the clock face in original scale.
