Furniture maker destilat presented their sidetable gem , which changes its surface depending on from which point it is viewed. Thomas Feichtner's Drawing Lamp , a collection of cables, steel and LED lighting sources, put the minimalist element in the foreground.

Advantage Austria chief-organizer Helmut Döller adds: "It is our vision to position Austria as a nation of contemporary design together with the likes of Italy or Denmark." (BS/DR)
