Sneak Peek: Vienna Design Week

Beginning next week will be the first Vienna Design Week.

Described as:
First VIENNA DESIGN WEEKs, 3 – 21 October 2007

Vienna presents itself as a lively location for product design
The VIENNA DESIGN WEEKs from 3 to 21 October 2007 will concentrate all the dynamic variety of contemporary Austrian design under a single roof for the first time. It will represent a self-confident Austrian-Viennese entry to the international calendar of festivals and fairs. For a period of two-and-a-half weeks Vienna will present itself as a pulsating creative location. Under the label VIENNA DESIGN WEEKs a variety of important institutions and protagonists as well as partners from the world of business will come together. Creative designers will link with the producers of design objects. The VIENNA DESIGN WEEKs, which will be held annually, hone the perception of design, illustrate different approaches and, above all, stimulate a delight in design.
