Everyone - from design studios and architecture firms, to Austrian and international companies of all sizes, to museums, cultural institutions and universities - is invited to become part of Austria's most important design festival with program items.

The VIENNA DESIGN WEEK focuses on quality instead of quantity. In order to achieve an effective presence, we will be happy to advise you and discuss your ideas with you in detail. This is how a PLATFORM - and a festival - is created from individual program points.

The program points of the PLATFORM participants take place at independent locations throughout Vienna. These are organized by the organizers themselves and communicated by the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK in the festival program. In this way, your content becomes an organic part of the festival.

All details and included services can be found here


Time, format and content of PLATFORM contributions can be freely designed: from a selective workshop to an exhibition over the entire duration of the festival.A festival lives from the character of "now-or-never": show new content, communicate your work, convince our audience to visit your contribution because it can only be experienced in this form during the festival period.

Your contribution could be: product presentation, talk, exhibition, installation, pop-up store, performance, workshop, work-in-progress, ...


  • be an active part of a dynamic design festival
