DESIGNED CLICHÉ. Austrian Industrial Design
In October 2016, Austria Design Net will be guest of World Design Capital 2016, Taipei. An exhibition – designed for and on that occasion – will put the skills and innovative energy of the Austrian design scene in the limelight and present it in an economically strong country. A corresponding framework program will push and support the international exchange between the countries.
The aim is to display the strength, power and competence of the Austrian design scene and to accelerate long-lasting networks and cooperation.
We want to show the range of Austrian design via the exhibition – the focus is set on the provided subject ‘Life Quality and Health Area’, requested by the organizer. It is about presenting in Taipei – apart from quality and technical know-how – also the passion for design, the competitive advantage due to good design, and the skills of Austrian creators. We display products of export-orientated Austrian companies, whereby we present not only the designers but also the people who have commissioned the products.
Apart from the exhibition, there will also be – like mentioned above – a mediation workshop between designers and economic operators from Austria and those located in Taipei. It is a continuation of the already established first contacts in May 2015, on occasion of a mediation workshop between Taiwanese and Austrian companies in Vienna. And there will be a presentation and lecture evening of an Austria-based top-class representative of design, followed by a cocktail reception and networking event, staged by the Austrian representative in Taiwan.
