.How to get there



"The poor are not those who have little, but those who cannot get enough," the French writer Jean Guéhenno is said to have said. Nowadays, we theoretically have the opportunity to consume excessively at any time. But does that really make our everyday lives richer? Hardly! That's why Emilia Schattanik's concept store Human Nest aims to inspire us to buy less, but to buy high quality. Her charming showroom in the Karoviertel district is an ode to aesthetics and mindfulness.

She carefully selects interior products from the home, kitchen, bathroom and care sectors, as well as adorable gifts and cool vintage and design treasures. In addition to individuality, aesthetics and quality, she also focuses on making everyday objects a joy to use thanks to their special qualities.

And so special finds and one-of-a-kind objects such as an Italian vintage chessboard made of green-beige alabaster strike sparks in our hearts, as do the Monk mugs by studio Mäls or the aesthetic wooden spoons made of London plane wood by Hampson Woods. The lively carafes by Sophie Lou Jacobsen and the eye-catching vases by Hein Studio also form an engaging combination of quality and design.

Another part of Human Nest's vision is to reveal the stories and people behind the product. The captivatingly beautiful Agnes bath towel from the Autumn Sonata brand not only tells us that its navy blue pattern is the image of southern Italian tile technology, but also that brand founder Lili Elias has a background as an archivist and finds her way to her designs through her fascination with antique prints and textiles.

This not only creates long-lasting commercial relationships, but also an appreciation of the objects themselves. After all, Human Nest is convinced that every purchase should have the potential to bring joy and become long-lasting or lifelong companions, in order to encourage moderate and mindful consumption.
