In collaboration with:


The VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is Austria’s largest curated design festival.

Established in 2007, it has been staging around 200 events and attracted over 40,000 visitors to Vienna. The festival works specifically on networking local potential internationally.

Switzerland is the guest country at the 2020 edition of Vienna Design Week, honouring the long years of close collaboration between our two countries and their respective design institutions. On this occasion, Pro Helvetia collaborates with Design Prize Switzerland to present a selection of young Swiss designers at the festival with the exhibition Design Switzerland.

Selected through a call for participation, the exhibited projects share an innovative vision of design and propose smart solutions in a spectrum of products.
