Peter Rath, co-owner and designer, Lobmeyr glass and chandelier manufacturers, Vienna
During the tense Cold War years, Peter Rath designed and supplied the lighting for the opera house in the Washington Kennedy Center and the chandeliers for the Kremlin in Moscow. He did not go entirely unnoticed by the secret service.
To accompany the exhibition ‘Cold War and Architecture. Contributions to Austria’s Democratization after 1945’, we invite you to a dialogue with selected guests, who add their commentaries to the exhibition based on their own personal expertise.
