Special is what rethinks the concept of design. People, works and approaches that broaden our understanding of design, deepen it and extend it to other disciplines. Special should also be what the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK wants to achieve as a communicator, ambassador, organizer, promoter, mediator and advisor for the perception of Austrian design. In this sense, the format called Special brings a mixture of special collaborations, unique interventions and special projects to the festival.
