Future of Living: Vienna
20 Jan−28 Feb 2020
A fresh selection of contemporary Slovenian design production, local materials and sustainable principles!
The presented products and services combine creativity with a business vision. We’ve highlighted stories of small brands that express functionality, a passion for life and nature, innovative ways of using local materials (wood in particular), and new production methods based on regional craftsmanship and advanced sustainable production technologies.
Over the past two years, a set of 90 products that have received the “Made in Slovenia” mark of excellence was assembled, which in many ways well represents the efforts of the Centre for Creativity, which operates within the Museum for Architecture and Design – to connect, promote, support and develop the cultural and creative sector in Slovenia and more actively connect it with the economy, science and education. The selected products look to and forecast the future of living, where raw materials are no longer available in abundance, where it is necessary to rationalize the methods of production, use human resources, and bring the products closer to a new generation of users who want and need custom solutions. These are to be found in technologically advanced and innovative manufacturing, which manufacturers and designers combine with a love of life and nature.
