The installation was created to complement the major jubilee exhibition focusing on Maria Theresa at the Hofmobiliendepot – Imperial Furniture Collection. As a typical representative of the eighteenth century, Maria Theresa loved all things oriental. In its interiors, lacquer objects and porcelain her epoch created its own carefree version of far-off lands. In his contribution to Vienna Design Week, the designer Sebastian Menschhorn plays with elements and principles of the Rococo: exotic fantasies, the dissolution of mental and physical boundaries, amorphous forms, pleasure and intimacy. Looking outwards and inwards he creates a private microcosm in which far and near merge in the onlooker’s perception.
