As a creative service, product design involves more than just external form. The development and design of objects used every day profoundly affects relationships with our environment and therefore our lifestyle. The exhibition DESIGN EVERYDAY – DESIGN FÜR DEN GEBRAUCH 2018 foregrounds this strategically important theme and shows design’s significance for innovation and the ability of products to compete on the market, using as examples selected works by Austrian designers. All in all, the exhibition represents an open and growing collection – which intends to provide Austrian product designers with a future platform that has an international reach. Conceived and curated by Vandasye (Georg Schnitzer and Peter Umgeher) in cooperation with the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK.
