Networking beyond Austria’s borders has always been a vital issue at the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK. And the Vienna Business Agency provided an opportunity in 2017 in the form of CREATORS LAB, which inspires creatives to rethink their business models in an exchange with international design experts. In small groups, participants engaged in discussions with studioBASAR of Romania, which interfaces architecture and social design in an urban environment, the Dutch product and furniture designer Ineke Hans, who works in the field of tension between industrial and manual production, and her countryman Jólan van der Wiel, who pursues multidisciplinary and collaborative strategies in experimental design. Design Interrail for young members of the field. Or: A welcome opportunity to travel the world of design while never leaving Vienna.
