Vienna Spielkarten 2013

In 2012 six product designers from six different European nations have been invited by the Vienna Tourist board, to capture their view of Vienna in a three-dimensional proposal for a souvenir for the city. This challenging task has been taken up by a group of acclaimed, up-and-coming designers: Germany's Ding 3000, Switzerland's Big Game, France's Ionna Vautrin, Italy's/The Netherlands Studio Formafantasma, Spain's Hector Serrano and the United Kingdom's PearsonLloyd.

The result of the competition have seen as winner Studio Formafantasma which designed a deck of cards loaded with historical references to modernist Vienna.

The design of the cards revisits the picturesque. Textures sampled from museum archives, iconic modernist buildings, and traditional Austrian products are playfully mixed to generate a new iconic collection of playing cards.

The deck has been locally produced in Vienna by the traditional playing cards company Piatnik & Söhne. Started in 1824 by Anton Moser, the company is considered by some to be a icon of Vienna and still one of the most successful producers of its kind.
