Review: 2018

Passionswege

Passionswege

Design connects. Especially in the case of the Passionswege. Ever since they were introduced, VIENNA DESIGN WEEK has been connecting international and Austrian designers with Viennese production companies in the context of this curated format. In open work processes and free from commercial constraints of conventional work relationships, designers and businesses experiment, create and share knowledge. The financial framework is established by the festival. Starting out from two stations in the inner city of Vienna, in 2018 the format has made its way into the Focus District Neubau. The results of each cooperative venture - objects or installations - are shown directly on site in what are frequently authentic Viennese workshops and business premises. Every year Passionswege means discovering the city's manufacturing culture in tandem.
