A Sofa


 I alwyas make time when in Vienna for a visit at the MAK, which few know to be the oldest Design museum. The building in itself has the reassuring grandeur of the museum and yet it so inequivovably austrian that you feel like in a Wiener Kaffee. And since in Viennese caffees you mainly sit to read and entertain yourself with your own thoughts (ordering a melange is totally a secondary occupation), in the foyer of the MAK they have plenty of sofas. And they are none the less than Franz West sofas! Made in his signature steel wire, and covered with African fabrics, they always feel unexpected, even after so many visits.
