Sometimes the easiest questions are the hardest to answer. „Why Design?“ is the question asked by departure and the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK. Addressed are four very special speakers from the design world invited to this year’s talk series at the Vienna k/hauskino. The question may be answered very personally and with attention to personal biographies or with respect to the very many possibilities design has to better the world.
Stefan Sagmeister, Gijs Bakker, Inga Sempé and Konstantin Grcic will each answer the question differently, a question everyone who has ever decided to work within design should not stop asking.
