Designmonat Graz 2018

Fri 04.05 - Sun 03.06

Save the date to participate in Designmonat Graz 2018!

In Graz, the month of May focuses on Design. Designmonat Graz (Month of Design) encompasses an extensive programme and provides an insight into different creative disciplines and links with various designers. Events such as exhibitions, workshops or lectures invite you to networking in the UNESCO City of Design Graz.

From 4th May to 6th June, Designmonat Graz 2018, which is coordinated and organised by Creative Industries Styria (CIS), is celebrating its 10th anniversary! There is a persistent strong interest in the event. A successful Designmonat Graz 2017 turned Graz into an internationally renowned hotspot of design. In May 91,100 people visited 126 single events, that were staged with 101 programme partners and 431 designers or labels. About 200 reports of Designmonat Graz in print, TV and radio.


Focus 2018
Designmonat Graz 2018 is dedicated to the topic Tolerance and examines what even determines the quality of design and who defines the criteria? Does ‘beauty’ really lie in the eye of the beholder and is design successful if a majority experiences it that way?
