As one of the landmark Viennese hotels the Sacher was a very innovative house, stylistic as well as technical. It rivals with the Hofburg Palace and the Lord Mayor’s offce to be the frst building worldwide to be equipped with representative electrical lighting so it was the frst private project at least. Ludwig Lobmeyr connected with Thomas A. Edison who was in Vienna during the World Exposition 1883.
The chandeliers in the Anna Sacher restaurant bear the typical hanging bulbs necessary for the early electrical chandeliers. They mark the peak of this so prosperous period for our company at the late 19th century.
Later we provided the chandeliers for the Red Bar, the Marble Hall and the Blue Bar.
We are also gladly invited from time to time to overlook the chandeliers and clean them carefully to ensure another 100 years of service.
