Vienna table trip

A journey through Vienna on the coffee house table, animated by Virgil Widrich on behalf of Vienna’s Staff Office International Strategy and Coordination.
"The coffee table is a microcosm of Vienna, because basically you do not need to leave the coffee house to travel once through the whole of Vienna. This idea eventually led to the idea of a miniature journey through the city, staged with saucers, cups, plates, knives, forks and souvenirs – garnished with projected memories and the many starters, main courses and desserts one can so often find here. (Virgil Widrich)
