The MAK Design Collection was established in 2005 and represents a broad spectrum of design output from Austria. The design concept in question encompasses a multifaceted range of aspects, from industrial production and handcrafted manufacture to unique art objects and prototypes, from utility objects and fashion to graphic arts and media design.
The holdings of the MAKs collection of textiles, which is one of the foremost textile collections in the world, cover the time from Late Antiquity until today; they encompass the globe with works from nearly all parts of Asia and Europe, and even South America. The collection is a comprehensive material archive reflecting the artistic, technical, and economic developments of this special field throughout the last 1,500 years. This richness of the material archive gives it a unique capability of illustrating the multifaceted, international cultural interconnections that have developed over the centuries.
