Ding Residency

Design in Gesellschaft (DING for short) is a studio community in Vienna’s 20th district. Based on the conviction that the days of authorial design are numbered and that many things can be advanced more courageously, better and with more joy in a collective – in Gesellschaft, that is – the members of the association work sometimes side by side, then again with each other in changing constellations, depending on expertise and availability.
Around a secluded inner courtyard, they run several workshops and regularly stage exhibitions in the large hall that show that design is not just about beautiful surfaces, but about imagining new perspectives for the future and questioning old habits. How should our city function? What should new furniture production look like? Are we still allowed to produce at all? Design in Gesellschaft cooperates with museums, industry and science.

DING (Design in Gesellschaft) is looking for two designers-in-residence for summer 2024.
