MAK DESIGN NITE: CIRCULAR FLOWS – THE TOILET REVOLUTION!

Talk

1.10.2019, 7pm

It’s one of the most urgent environmental problems of our time: nitrogen pollution of water. With the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and at the initiative of Eawag, the renowned Viennese design studio EOOS, together with the LAUFEN company, developed the revolutionary prototype SAVE!, a toilet that separates wastes. This repre­sents a systemic design solution for the battle against the nitrogen problem, which is mostly ignored. This contribution was honored with the Ape Nera, the Black Bee Award of the Triennale di Milano 2019. At the Design Nite, the design process and scenarios for the future of the toilet revolution will be dis­cussed. The installation will be on display throughout the entire VIENNA DESIGN WEEK.

Talk with: Harald Gründl (EOOS), Tove Larsen (Eawag), Marc Viardot (LAUFEN)

Moderation: Marlies Wirth (MAK)
