Fri, 26.09.2014–Sun, 26.10.2014
MAK DESIGN SPACE
Cape Town is the 2014 World Design Capital, and Austria will be visiting the city to present its AustriaDesignNet platform.
This offers an opportunity to exchange ideas about processes of design and innovation in different latitudes. Südnovation
[Southnovation], an initiative by kulturen in bewegung from Vienna, will show what the North can learn from the South
in a living room installation, including topics such as fugal innovation, upcycling, highly flexible and collective
working processes, and more. The upcycling designer Heath Nash from Cape Town will apply this collaborative dialogue to new
products with local partners from Austria in a dynamic work in progress progress e.g. he curated a selection of South
African designs by courtesy of HABARI, a Vienna based concept store.
