The exhibition DESIGN EVERYDAY shows outstandingly designed everyday objects from the Austrian design scene.
Initiated and curated by Vandasye
As a creative service, product design is more than mere shaping. The development and design of objects for everyday use shapes our relationship with our environment and thus our culture of life.
Design is something everyday, both in terms of its use and its availability. It influences the relationship of the individual to his surroundings and environment. Useful, responsibly designed and sustainably produced everyday objects are therefore becoming all the more important as the boundaries between the real and virtual worlds become increasingly blurred.
While it is becoming increasingly difficult to identify those qualities that lend validity to good design in an unmanageable world of goods, the Design Everyday format provides insights into the regular activities of Austrian design studios.
The selection focuses on furniture and products of everyday life that contribute to the further development of contemporary design in Austria and beyond.
In its entirety, the format represents an open, growing collection: without any claim to completeness but with the perspective of offering Austrian product designers a platform with international reach in the future. The aim of the initiative is to stimulate discourse and cooperation between design creators, theorists and manufacturers in order to strengthen mutual exchange and promote joint collaborations.
Design Everyday is an ongoing project curated by Vandasye, which has been shown annually since 2017 as part of Vienna Design Week and is accompanied and supported by the latter.
