The Wiener Walzer is yet another example of designers and retailers treating ordinary spaces as though they were an art gallery. Created for the Heinemann Duty Free Shops in the new "Skylink" terminal of the Vienna Airport, the Wiener Walzer is a sinuous shelving unit that looks more like a large-scale sculpture.

Inspired by the famous Viennese waltz, the Wiener Walzer strives to symbolically connect the inside of the airport with the city outside. According to Plus Mood, "Points of interpretation were the movement in space created by the dance steps with its traditional right and left turns, its fast pace and especially the "floating" form of the dance." The dynamic creation was designed by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU.
