MAK DESIGN LAB
Guided tour through the reinstallation of the MAK DESIGN LAB followed by further discussion at the restaurant Salonplafond im MAK

The reinstallation of the MAK DESIGN LAB positions design as a motor of sustainable change. Objects from the MAK Collection are placed into a new context and are positioned at the interface between everyday life, society, digitalization, and climate change based on multi-faceted perspectives. The MAK DESIGN LAB is dedicated to the questions and chances of a post-growth society and shows how we can succeed in cooperating in a fair, sustainable, and meaningful way, what an economy for the common good can imply for the market economy and digital education for work in the future. It shows how we have to change our habits and consumption patterns to restore functioning cycles, and what a good life can look like after the current overabundance.

The reorganization of the MAK DESIGN LAB is financially supported by the EU program INTERREG V-A Slovakia–Austria (Project “Design & Innovation”) and is realized in cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research.
