September: Was ist Loos? - Kunsthalle Wien

A solo exhibition in Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz from 28 Sept - 12 Nov 2017. 

'Was ist Loos?' (What's going on?) shows recent and new work grouped around a number of topics that influence the position of design and the designer at the moment.

Except for being 'food for thought', the topics are also nutritional base for an active design attitude and the exhibition explicitly shows some responses too: a chair is developed for Kunsthalle Wien with Gebrüder Thonet Wien and a desk for Opendesk, platform for open source production.

A catalogue designed by Irma Boom will accompany the presentation with text contributions from Oliver Stratford - Editor-in-Chief of Disegno Magazine, Deyan Sudjic - Director of Design Museum London and Bart Lootsma - Professor for Architectural Theory Innsbruck who was head of the 3D design department when Ineke studied in Arnhem.

The opening of the exhibition coincides with the start of Vienna Design Week and has several side events.
