EVENTS: Vienna Design Week, September 25 - October 4

A feast of modernism is set to start today at
a city-wide festival of enticing design-related events scheduled daily
from September 25 through October 4, 2015.
Last year 35,000 visitors enjoyed this eclectic showcase, which now 
enters its ninth year. Opening up creative processes and encouraging 
experimentation on site are core elements of the festival's concept.

Lights of Vienna – renowned developers and manufacturers of decorative lighting – 
are forward-looking and open to the fresh ideas of young designers. Their credo is 
“It’s the light that makes good architecture into unique architecture.”.

GOODGOODs -- a line of utilitarian objects for the home – are produced by people 
with physical or mental disabilities. Organized by Austrian designers, nine studios 
conceived useful products and facilitated integrative workshops in which the objects were handcrafted; bottle openers, bags, pegging games, brushes, boxes, baskets, and cooking spoons demonstrate the producers’ skills and motivation.

Established in Budapest, the internationally renowned WAMP (Wasárnapi Művész Piac) Design Markt will have a strong presence in Vienna this year. WAMP has become 
"A place of encounter for design, urbanity, and globetrotters!"

The Design Markt -- a showcase for more than 700 international designers-- is one of the best known premium events in Central Europe and has developed into the place-to-be for designers, creative people and trendsetters.
