1010 Vienna Austria
Florian Ladstätter is the Vienna-based designer behind eponymous jewellery brand FLorian. Though born in Germany in 1967, Florian grew up in Austria, where he completed a Diploma in Advanced Metal Design from the University of Applied Arts Vienna. He then returned to Germany to study Philosophy in Munich.
FLorian designs range from simple beaded necklaces to epic sculptural body adornments. His pieces bring several concepts together with a wealth of references, theories, contexts and inspirations, inevitable with any design worth its merit, yet FLorian can be simply enjoyed too. References aside, its beauty speaks clear enough on face value.
Ever popular with stylists, FLorian's pieces have been featured in magazines at the vanguard of fashion including W-magazine, AnOther Magazine, Japanese Vogue, Dazed&Confused and i-D. His work currently appears in private and public collections at the University and Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna, the Austrian Ministry of Culture and Education and at London's prestigious Victoria & Albert Museum.
