Atelier Karasinski Open-source commercial design featured

It’s not often that you get to take a peek inside the artist’s studio. But then, Polish-born conceptual designer Laura Karasinski is a welcoming kind of girl. So welcoming, in fact, that she threw the doors to her atelier—the base of operations for her eponymous design label—wide open. And there’s plenty in there for inquisitive eyes to peruse, no matter if they belong to design buffs or not.

Laura’s been extremely active over the past couple of years — as testified by her logo design, corporate branding and package design for weighty clients such as André Heller, Red Bull and Sony & Warner. Dotting the airy, white-walled and elegantly decorated space, the work on show provides ample inspiration and then some for any aspiring commercial designer.

Grelle Forelle Earplugs at the ready

The Danube Canal was already a summer-time party hotspot but Grelle Forelle has taken it to an entire new level, single-handedly taking the upper-crust Viennese nightlife scene and vigorously shaking it until it’s back to being a scruffy, young party-mad lil’ upstart. Grelle Forelle abandons all pretence. No photos, no guestlists and definitely no private tables. Instead, a soundsystem of eardrum-perforating strength, maximum cred lineups and a committed crowd going long and hard. Who said Vienna was just about sophistication?

Galerie Emanuel Layr Young at art

Layr Wuestenhagen originally opened in 2002 as a project space for emerging artists by two gallerists, Emanuel Layr and Thomas Wüstenhagen. After initial success and a hunger for larger projects, the gallery moved to a larger space, which now includes viewing galleries, offices and additional project spaces.

In March 2011 the gallery was reestablished under the directorship of Emanuel Layr, with a focus toward solo exhibitions occasionally punctuated by broadly scoped group shows. Since then the gallery’s eye for emerging talent has helped to support numerous young artists.
