A mix of piles of matrasses and futuristic object fill up the apartment almost naturally. “We have no couch but we use the matrasses to sit on.” says Ruthner. Together with her husband Philipp and her two sons the fashion-designer possesses an avant-garde paradise where nobody succeeds in standing still. More than a decennium ago, Helga and her business-partner Hermann Frankhauser made normal fashion for him and her. The eccentric character character of Ruthner and the Viennese humor colour the apartment.
