Vienna Design Week

Vienna Design Week is Austria's largest curated design festival and has been taking place in Vienna since 2007. Recently it welcomed over 40,000 visitors to around 200 events per year. In 2020 Vienna Design Week will take place from the 25th of September to the 4th of October.

During ten days in autumn Vienna Design Weekproves that Vienna is a "City Full of Design". Overlooked corners of the city turn into stages for design, both critical and playful approaches, entry-level communication and professional discourse explore new perspectives on the objects around us and design as well as manufacturing processes are revealed often in experimental ways specific to their location.

The multifaceted output that product, furniture and industrial design, architecture, graphic design and social design, as well as experimental and increasingly digital positions, produce and that is the mark of quality of the Viennese and Austrian design scene is at the heart of Vienna Design Week. The festival aims to internationally connect this local potential which is something that clearly shows in its programme.

In addition to the festival formats such as Passionswege, Stadtarbeit, Laboratory/Graphics, Debut and Urban Food & Design, VIENNA DESIGN WEEK focuses on annually changing topics and their implications for design. Another crucial addition are the contributions organized by the numerous Programme Partners. Finally, celebration and informal networking find their due place in the festival.

Vienna Design Week is directed by Lilli Hollein, who next to Tulga Beyerle and Thomas Geisler is one of the founders of the festival. She conceptualizes and realizes the festival together with a team uniting a variety of areas of expertise and approaches to design. Beyond that Vienna Design Week relies on a strong network of dedicated supporters and collaborators.
