Romanian Design Week

Guest Country



Romanian Design Week, Rumänisches Kulturinstitut Wien


The threads of tradition were literally woven through the Festival Headquarters North, permeating it and creating a finely meshed narration about innovations from Romania’s dynamic design scene that reference the past. The showcase masterfully dealt with the most important thing, returning to characteristics of the past without falling victim to the trap of nostalgia. This was done by placing folkloric traditions in the context of contemporary production with local resources and integrating the regional community’s knowledge. Fashion and everyday objects, they all have their own inscribed history to tell.
