The Vienna Design Week, now in its fifth year, is Austria’s most important international design festival. From 30 September – 9 October 2011, it will bring some of the best designers of our time to the Austrian capital while simultaneously fostering talents of tomorrow. The festival is diverse in content – comprising the areas of product design, industrial design, and furniture design.
With exhibitions, venue-specific installations, theme specials, talks, and of course plenty of opportunities to party and network, Vienna Design Week is an attraction not only for the international design scene. It most explicitly aims to appeal to a wide public audience in Vienna, including international guests: in cooperation with many partners – museums, institutions and companies – the whole city becomes a platform and a showcase for design. The Vienna Design Week does not have the character of a trade fair, but instead offers a variety of venues and approaches specific to Vienna. More information on the event after the break.
