"The Viennese Waltz“ The design of the Heinemann Duty Free Shop in the “Skylink” terminal of the Vienna Airport is inspired by the Viennese Waltz and conveys to the passengers the feeling: I am in Vienna.
COOP HIMMELB(L)AU’s translates the floating elegance of the waltz into a dynamic, space-encompassing sculpture. The movement of the dance steps – converted by scripting software – creates the basic shape of the furniture element.
For the technical implementation again state-of-the-art technology was utilized. The monolithic spatial sculpture was milled from PU foam from data that were transferred directly from a 3-D-Model, coated with Polyurethane and finally varnished with gold paint as a reference to the important Viennese time of Art Nouveau.
