WORK IN PROGRESS – WAGNER LIVING – ANGEWANDTE VIENNA
Designers, especially industrial designers, have a direct influence on the tools of work and on how people work together in workplaces. Whether in offices, studios, workshops, in the fields or at home. Designers awaken the consumer desires of a society and, together with industry and crafts, satisfy them by transforming resources into products and services. It is therefore obvious that designers play a central role in the transformation of the thematic complexes of work and economy.
Work, as the old German proverb says, is half the life. One would think that this view would be a relict of the past. But instead, the debate about work is more complex and extensive than ever.
