As a creative service, product design involves much more than simple styling. Responsibly designed, sustainably produced everyday items are becoming more important as the borders between the real and virtual worlds are increasingly fuzzy. The exhibition DESIGN EVERYDAY – DESIGN FOR PRACTICAL USE 2019 puts this strategically important theme in the focus of a presentation and shows the significance of design for practical use as well as the innovation and competitiveness of products, using as examples selected designs by Austrian companies.
