Vienna Design Week
27 Sep – 6 Oct 2019
Vienna Design Week sees design as an elementary part of our everyday lives, far beyond an aesthetic contribution, as a profound tool of society. Under the direction of curator Lilli Hollein, the organisers want to communicate this in the form of exhibitions, product presentations, workshops, participatory projects, talks and tours throughout Vienna, not only to a specialist audience, but also to a public interested in design and visitors to the city. As this year’s guest country is Finland, the aim is to shed light on Finnish design history from Iittala via Artek and Marimekko to Nokia. The designer Tero Kuitunen is curating an exhibition on contemporary Finnish design under the title “Wild at Heart”.
