Vienna Design Week - Our top 5 picks from Festivalzentrale

theface_viennadesignweek

Vienna Design Week 2015 ran between 25 September and 4 October. Besides events scattered across the town, most of the projects were concentrated to a single, central venue. The lofty spaces of the Ankerbrotfabrik, a former bread factory located further away from the centre, proved to be an ideal counterpoint to the classical-homely inner city design galleries. To match the location’s progressive spirit, an eclectic mix of activities were brought together under one roof from country’s presentations through graphic design exhibits to experimentations with novel material applications. Now we present you 5 select projects that illustrate the festival’s colourful nature and  are worth remembering even after the its closure.

1. Polish Design Stories

Quite a few Eastern European countries appeared with a separate presentation at the Design Week, and the Polish exhibition was definitely outstanding amongst them. And that is no surprise - Poland has a long tradition in furniture manufacturing, being one of the world’s leading producers and exporters in the segment. With Polish Design Stories, they intended to shift the audience’s concept of Poland as a cheap furniture manufacturer to the image of a land where innovative design and high quality craftsmanship meet. Organised along the division of past-present-future, the exhibition first introduced Polish design classics, then contemporary furniture pieces by designers and manufacturers currently on the top, and finally a set of visionary illustrations pointing towards the possible future of Polish design and furniture industry in general.

2. Marbleabilia

Mandruzzato Marmi & Graniti are a marble cutting factory near Vicenza, Italy, working with high quality stone materials like Carrara marble and onyx. Despite their advanced manufacturing methods, they produce a lot of leftovers that are normally ground to gravel. Up until now, as through their collaboration with product designer Lucia Massari they intend to give new life to degraded marble pieces. Massari uses scrap to create a series of furniture pieces, that, due to the very nature of the source material, are completely unique and unpredictable. The Marbleabilia project is a nice example of recycling with a good taste and no compromise in quality.

3. Studio Es, Who are You?

Studio Es is a graphic agency involved mainly in creating branding stories. In their project for Vienna Design Week, they took their daily job to a personal level: they posed a few dozen fellow designers, architects, illustrators, and photographers the simple question Who are you? They asked the creatives to summarise their answer on a simple white A4 page that were then installed on a wall in the most basic grid-line pattern. While it is deeply entertaining for the audience to browse through the answers, the project allowed Studio Es to create an inspirational board for themselves, by showcasing a comprehensive set of examples of expressing identity in a concentrated, visual way.

4. Un.folding - NDU x GEA

Besides their project focusing on the materials of the future (red more here), New Design University presented an exhibition showcasing students’ work. In collaboration with local furniture and shoe manufacturer GEA, students enrolled at the BA course Design, Handwerk, and Materielle Kunst (Manual and Material Culture) created a set of adaptable furniture pieces. Twenty deigns were born altogether, mostly made of wood, reinterpreting a retro-object in a highly functional and progressive manner. The selection provides a much-needed insight into the present of Austrian design education, and illustrates how inspirational the involvement of a professional partner for students can be.

5. New Austrian Design

Besides a look at the possible future of the local design see (i.e. student presentations), the present of Austrian furniture was also showcased in the Festivalzenttrale of the Vienna Design Week. Interio, an Austrian designer furniture store, edited a collection of the very best of current design from the country. The objects, while relying and utilising on local traditions in either form or manufacturing processes, are presentable and highly applicable in an international setting as well. From multi-functional working desks to archetypal-inspired wardrobes, visitors get a comprehensive overview of the contemporary Austrian scene. The installation setting in the airy spaces of Skyloft, against the backdrop of the stunning views of the city, makes furniture alive and leaves a fresh, urban impression of contemporary Austrian design.
