The Institute of Design Research Vienna is staging a show of destruction in the inner courtyard of the MQ. Everyday objects will be dismantled and critically analyzed with the help of a hammer and a digital tool for the practical implementation of circular product design. Together we will uncover greenwashing and discuss alternatives.

We propagate creative destruction in design, which, as the Austrian economist Joseph Schumpeter coined the term, must precede every innovation. The new design must be environmentally friendly and regenerative!

We are demonstrating a new tool, the Circular Design Rules. They were developed with the support of the Ministry of Climate Protection and the Vienna Business Agency and will be the starting point for an action by the DESIGN REVOLUTION NOW! movement at the MQ.

Macht mit!
Ta del!
