For a better future of design
Ecodesign Talk at the Festival Headquarters
With Peter Umgeher and Georg Schnitzer (Vandasye), Kathrina Dankl (Studio Dankl), Lotte Kristoferitsch (EOOS NEXT), and Sebastian Leitinger (Glein) - at the VDW Festival Headquarters and as a webinar in the stream.
What exactly is sustainability in design? What is the significance of regional production - and what can be implemented here in practice? Do other countries have a different awareness of eco-design? What is the significance of new materials? How can customers assess the sustainability of a product or service? Is the designer responsible for the sustainability of a product or service?
We discussed questions like these at the KAT Ecodesign Talk with the curators of the DESIGN EVERYDAY exhibition, Peter Umgeher and Georg Schnitzer from the Vandasy design studio, as well as the exhibiting designers Lotte Kristoferitsch(EOOS NEXT), Kathrina Dankl(Studio Dankl) and Sebastian Leitinger(Glein).
We could have discussed for far longer than an hour.
Many thanks to all who were there - on site and in the stream!
