A humble nameplate without pretentions, in a pretty-as-a-chocolate-box courtyard in Innsbruck’s district of St. Nikolaus: NINA MAIR, proclaiming that this building is home to a studio that works internationally in architecture and product design with a focus on creating sustainable products and spaces that generate identity for clients around the globe. A bathtub carved from a block of walnut, delicate coffee tables, brass-and-leather stools and silicone soap dishes in pastel colours. The woman behind the brand is Nina Mair, an Austrian designer whose work synthesizes the beauty of raw and natural materials with minimalist, refined design. The Tirol Native is both an architect and designer, based in Innsbruck in the heart of the Austrian Alps. She trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and at Leopold Franzens University in Innsbruck in architecture. She founded the design studio “Pudelskern” together with two partners in 2006. Since 2012, Nina Mair has been working as a product designer and interior designer in Innsbruck.

It’s the end of the beer world as we know it—the Tribaun, center and heart of the local craft beer revolution, is transforming the way Tiroleans enjoy this wonderful, inexpensive, storied beverage: beer. Located in 5, Museumsstraße Street in the heart of downtown, the Tribaun opened its doors to a craft beer-starved Innsbruck—and has done a great job bringing in new and different beers and exposing people in Tirol’s capital to great craft beer. The international staff at the Tribaun, all dedicated craft beer enthusiasts, are pioneers in developing a world that contributes to the pleasure of everyday life in Innsbruck, in more ways than beer. There is lots of room for thirsty and adventurous minds who are tired of the industrialized, uninteresting beers flooding the market, for new-born or born again beer drinkers, so to speak. The Tribaun is the place for those who seek the world of better beer. And that is a good world indeed.
