„15 years ago, one year before the founding of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, when we first realized our project of bringing together craft-based manufacturers with leading talents from the European design scene, some still looked at us with astonishment, wondering what design and craftspersonship could have in common. Yet this swiftly became one of the festival’s most popular and internationally respected formats. For us, the project continues to be a curated interaction between knowledge transfer, respectful exchange and the spirit of innovation. And, of course, the opportunity to visit workshops and the places in which such innovation takes place also has a special appeal for designers and the public alike. Over the years, a wide variety of projects has emerged: The results range from much-discussed objects, via successful products, to a facilitated handover between generations. We are showing a fraction of these cooperative works in this anniversary exhibition.”– Lilli Hollein
