Mak Design Shop, Vienna
Tel: 43 1711 36228
Concierge.com's insider take:
The shop at the Museum of Applied Arts, just north of the Stadtpark, is a showcase for up-and-coming designers and architects from Austria and Central Europe as well as masters such as Zaha Hadid. Among the clothing, handbags, and home accessories, you might find flexible breadbaskets made of stainless-steel mesh with washable cotton covers, a magnetic bird paperweight, or a 3-D picture frame. Whatever you pick up, no one at home will have anything like it.
Open Tuesdays from 10 am to midnight, and Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 am to 6 pm.
