The unexpected, the breaking with conventions as well as creative communication strategies are the themes that the exhibited works are dealing with. In terms of media used, the spectrum ranges from interactive tools to arts & crafts. CUTE PUPPIES is designed to represent a new design generation and its self-conception.
Potential interfaces between the economy and design will in the years to come take centre stage and redefine Vienna and thus Vienna positions itself internationally as a location for young design.
Following WALKING CHAIR. HAPPY LANDING, CUTE PUPPIES is the second exhibition in the series START_UP: Designers New Projects, still on display until 26 October.
The group exhibition presents 14 Austrian and/or Austrian-based designers and design collectives: Marian Grabmayer, Oliver Grimm, Valerie Gudenus und Sandra Reichl, Dejana Kabiljo, Kristian Kloeckl, Grisha Morgenstern, Motmot - Anna Breitenberger and Stephen Kwon Reeder, Johanna Nock, POLKA, Hansi Raber, Stefan Rauter, sensomatic, Tortenthimmel, Katrina Wiedner.
