The Viennese duo Vandasye (Peter Umgeher and Georg Schnitzer), MAK Designers in Residence of 2012, will be staging a cooperative design happening together with Michael Anastassiades (GB), Patrick Rampelotto / Fritz Pernkopf (IT/AT), taliaYsebastian (AT)
and the visitors as a contribution to Vienna Design Week.
Umgeher and Schnitzer, who originated the design for the current exhibition MADE 4 YOU. Design for Change (on view till 7 October 2012) deal with the possibilities of a transformed (post-)industrial paradigm of production, assembling
a series of devices for the collective, onsite production of tableware and other items for use by the visitors to this experimental
party with an unpredictable ending.
Under the motto of design> new strategies, the MAK and departure will be holding a series of so-called design
links. In five evening events all in all, personalities from the areas of design, the economy, and research from all over
the world will be entering into a dialogue with the local creative community.
The d>nite is one of the highlights of the MAKs special program in the context of the Vienna Design Week (220.127.116.11.2013).
This DIY happening conceived for NOMADIC FURNITURE 3.0. New Liberated Living? shows contemporary strategies for do-it-yourself construction as a collective process.
