design:mikimartinek

28.9.–6.10.2018

Clean drinking water is one of the most valuable natural resources on earth. Inspired by the preciousness of nature and Austria’s presidency of the EU Council, the designer Miki Martinek developed a set of water glasses called “Blaues Gold:” handblown drinking glasses and a carafe produced by experienced glassblowers. The designer will talk about water as the source of life, design that enriches our daily lives, and co-creative development processes. She will also explain the flow of the design project, from the initial idea for a water glass in 2006 to the creation of the sustainable packaging in 2018. Water tasting with the designer daily starting at 5pm. À votre santé!
