Austrian Museum of Applied Arts - Have a Seat

This reading bench for museum visitors was created by American artist Jenny Holzer in 1993 and is an aluminium cast after an original bench from Danhauser Furniture Factory that existed from 1804 to 1838. During the Biedermeier period Danhauser was THE furniture manufactory in Vienna.

  1. Rather deceptive- at first glance it looks comfortable, but made of aluminum, not quite as comfortable as it seems!
