As a place of inspiration, research site, and champion of contemporary designers, the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts
/ Contemporary Art is a hub of the international design scene. With its outstanding collection of design objects, for over 150 years the MAK has been committed to recognizing contemporary
trends and leaving a permanent imprint on ideas about design. With this in mind, visitors are invited to engage with the developments
of applied art and contemporary design at the MAK Permanent Collection Vienna 1900 and the MAK DESIGN LAB. In the framework of Design 2017, the MAK presentation is showing classical glassworks by Adolf Loos in addition to works by designers breadedEscalope, chmara.rosinke,
and Patrick Rampelotto, whose objects already are part of the MAK Collection. Inspired by Viennese Modernism, their works
reveal a continuity of innovative design approaches. Starting with the questions of which classical designs can serve as a source of inspiration and how the designers are influenced
by the differentiation between museum object and design product, the presentation TIMELESS LOOS: Young Design in the Context of the MAK Permanent Collection Vienna 1900 thematizes and in some respects also eliminates the field of tension between classical museum object and commercial product. Visit the MAK Permanent Collection Vienna 1900 and the exhibition THOMAS BAYRLE: If It’s Too Long—Make It Longer free of charge with your Design 2017 ticket (access to the MAK Main Building through the MAK Exhibition Halls on the ground floor and the 1st floor).
