VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is Austria’s largest design festival. After the 10th anniversary last year the festival now celebrates its 11th edition. VIENNA DESIGN WEEK defines design as an essential part of the cultural production. The festival shows that design shapes our material culture, our every-day life and our world as consumers. Simultaneously, it influences our lifestyles and most fundamentally our aesthetic senses and judgements. In autumn we are therefore looking forward to a great number of different events throughout Vienna. There will be new, surprising and ground-breaking aspects to be discovered in our product culture. A first programme preview promises an exciting festival edition 2017.

STAGE FOR ART AND DESIGN
Wiener Stadthalle
With Halle D, opened in 1958, Roland Rainer created one of the most important buildings of Austrian architecture, and today it appears just as impressive, untouched in its substance and contemporary in architecture. The Austrian star architect moreover designed a major part of the furnishings and interior – for instance, the stackable Stadthalle chairs and the Rainer cloakroom have in the meantime become legendary. Moreover, Wiener Stadthalle still harbors artworks of inestimable value, some conspicuous, some integrated into the everyday routine. Wiener Stadthalle gives visitors the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes and view the numerous objects of contemporary art in back-stage guided tours throughout the year – 2017 also as part of VIENNA DESIGN WEEK.

CHROMATIC ARCHITECTURE
RWA_Architetti
Color and light are fundamental components of architecture. They are capable of setting the scene in a richly faceted way with spatial and architectural solutions; not the least of their properties is also that of being able to stimulate different modes of perception. In a former second-hand shop with connected studio on Rotenlöwengasse the international Italian architecture and interior architecture studio RWA_ARCHITETTI is showing a selection of radiantly colorful and black-and-white projects: the show includes designs of a new Milan showroom and the ceremonial hall of the university in Rovereto. In cooperation with Angelo Stagno and Stephan Köberl.

WISHFUL FURNITURE
Glein Manufakturmöbel aus Wien
Furniture design based on wishful thinking! As part of the participatory exhibition WISHFUL FURNITURE, the Viennese furniture manufacturer Glein invites festival visitors to sketch ideas for furniture design. Desk, loft bed, shoe shelves, children’s chair or dumb waiter – there are no limits to the imagination. As the festival proceeds, more and more postcards adorn the walls of the new showroom in the 7th district. At the end of VIENNA DESIGN WEEK the three most interesting designs will be selected and awarded. Furthermore, the winning design is technically processed and made. The winner gets the finished piece of furniture delivered to his or her home. Wishful furniture comes true!

LANDSCAPES AND PATTERNS, PLANTS AND FABRICS
Kieran Fraser Landscape Design
Three worlds of design in one location: while Kieran Fraser and his team develop design concepts for functional and atmospheric landscapes, Anita Duller and Hannah Stippl (duller/ stippl) focus on plants and patterns – on show in the form of large-format wall paintings and horticultural installations, also on exclusive cotton fabrics by Rita Garstenauer (Sheen Organic Textiles). The constant that connects: the striving for aesthetic quality and a multifaceted appeal to the eye.

Linz meets Mühlviertel in Vienna: for many years the design duo MARCH GUT (based in Linz) has been working together with Pühringer cabinetmakers from Böhmdorf.
