How can Neubau pay tribute to our local hub?

Turning used coffee grounds into eyewear.

Coffee is the most popular drink worldwide and are deeply rooted in many cultures.

Used coffee grounds, collected from local coffee shops are brought into the frames of eyewear.

“The name Neubau pays tribute to international creative hubs. Such as Vienna’s Neubau district, artists, creative souls and up- and- coming talents.” - Neubau
