Vienna’s so sweet! One location where this is more often the case than not is Herrengasse 6. That’s where Die Zuckerlwerkstatt celebrates the traditional craft of candy production. Solely by hand, the candy-making masters produce miniature confectionery artworks and flowers, patterns, and messages in crystalline form. Thus, it’s no surprise that a great deal of attention to detail and organic form whetted the appetites of Austria’s busiest food designers: At the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK’s invitation, Sonja Stummerer and Martin Hablesreiter, the duo Honey & Bunny, became acquainted with Die Zuckerlwerkstatt and its nearly forgotten production methods. The two have demonstrated more than once that playing with the materials, forms, and codes of our daily life and semiluxury foods hits the spot for them. The handmade candy masterpieces from Herrengasse represent a special new toy.
