When looking into design from Austria, you will find many extraordinary solutions and ideas; design that inspires you, makes you smile or even catch your breath in amazement. But what distinguishes Austrian design from design from other countries?
In general, all designers worldwide rely on the same creative principles, rules and methods. Still, their final products differ greatly. This could be a result of the influence that culture and landscape have on creative work. Does this apply to Austrian design as well?

These examples are proof of the diversity of Austrian design. The country’s culture and landscapes clearly have an effect on designers, more on some, less on others. Austrian design IS different from others – it is individual, special, unique.
