SOCIAL BUSINESS: PROTOTYPES FOR MAGDAS DESIGN
Fr 7.10.2016, 1pm
magdas Design – a new social business run by the Vienna Caritas – invites both designers and NDU students to design small products that can be made in the Caritas workshops in charitable and non-profit employment projects and subsequently offered for sale. Pre-eminent here is not the product and its sale, but the socio-economic context, production conditions, and the people involved. The exhibition sketches the process of development and shows students’ prototypes, many of which are adopted into the magdas Design range. The talk “Design and Social Enterprises” addresses the topic in depth.
