Mrery Chirtsams and hpapy new yaer!

Roland Bischel’s christmas window this year is a typo solution. It seems to work well as it draws a lot of customers into his shop (mainly to complain about the mis-spellings). Whatever works: happy holidays!

Kunsthandel Reinhold Hofstätter

We designed the overall identity for Hofstätter Projekte and also redesigned Kunsthandel Reinhold Hofstätter’s identity. The cards and letterhead were letterpress-printed onto fine cotton paper by the great Neue Satz Wien.

Hofstätter Projekte

Public toilets in Vienna

at the BrennpunktËš

”Von Wegen stilles Örtchen“ an exhibition about public toilets in Vienna is now on display until May 2015. We are responsible for architecture and design of the exhibition curated by Beatrice Jaschke and Monika Sommer.
It provides information about the history of public toilets, hygienic aspects and the dark side of these places, besides others.

For the broadest experience we tried to activate all of the visitor’s senses (but smell) with games, interactive sound installations, video cameras, animations and uv-lamps.

The launch of the website has been a month ago and mentioned below but we thought it deserves to be mentioned separately.

Get magnetic

Roland Bischel and his happy customers can now go crazy in his shop in Traiskirchen. Tons of magnetic triangles can be loosely arranged on two shiny new magnetic boards. We’ve started with the first two patterns.

Not visible in this picture are more than 200 coloured cubes which have flooded the shop window. Time to update our output section.

All new in May

The first issue of the redesigned monthly WUK programme is out! sensomatic won a small pitch between 2 x 3 studios with the aim to provide the alternative space with a new means of communication. In addition to their monthly listings, the WUK editorial team now has space for in depth articles and features.

1 entry, 1 winner

Our entry to the 100 best posters of Germany, Switzerland and Austria was selected as one of the winners — one of only 4 from Austria. We are looking forward to seeing the other 99.

“Wahl & Qual” (‘Choice & Anguish’) was a poster for the Kunstverein Wolfsburg. The title is a modification of the phrase “Qual der Wahl” (‘spoilt for choice’) which only makes sense in German.
