VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is Austria‘s largest curated design festival and has been taking place in Vienna since 2007. 2019 it welcomed over 40,000 visitors to around 200 events per year. In 2020 VIENNA DESIGN WEEK will take place from 25th of September to the 6th of October. It will adapt some things due to the circumstances of the consequences of Covid-19, the basic orientation and fields remain.
During ten days each Autumn VIENNA DESIGN WEEK proves that Vienna is a "City Full of Design". Overlooked corners of the city turn into stages for design, both critical and playful approaches, entry-level communication and professional discourse explore new perspectives on the objects around us and design as well as manufacturing processes are revealed often in experimental ways specific to their location.
The multifaceted output that product, furniture and industrial design, architecture, graphic design and social design as well as experimental and increasingly digital positions produce and that is the mark of quality of the Viennese and Austrian design scene is at the heart of VIENNA DESIGN WEEK. The festival aims to internationally connect this local potential which is something that clearly shows in its programme.
