    Mano Design

    The Viennese factory mainly produces lights, accessories and vases out of porcelain. In doing so mano design is the only manufacturer in Austria to specialise in the processing of "Bone China" - one of the highest quality and finest kinds of porcelain. The designer knows how to play with conventions and thus creates products which are at the same time both creative and functional .

    Y5 Open Space

    The Viennese upcycling fashion brand has its control centre at Yppenplatz. The pop-up store is used by various designers and there is always something new to discover here.

Bags, T-shirts and jewellery are not designed by well-known designers, but by long-term unemployed people. The social project is  managed by Caritas Wien. Shopping for a good cause is so easy.
