Design is the element in the development process of products that has a lasting impact on success or failure. Design is not just an aesthetic discipline, but an economic criterion. The Hollenegg Design Talks explore ways and options for how companies can deal with design and how design can be integrated into existing corporate strategies. The focus is on the innovative and transformative power of design and its importance as a catalyst for successful product development.

Anyone who talks about design implies high quality, from conception to production. Design leaves nothing to chance – accordingly, the expectations, on the part of the companies and also on the part of the designers, are high. Design is also about permitting a permanent process of development and actively accompanying it. The things that can emerge, be adopted and discarded, are the center of an intensive experience exchange, which allows both sides to tell about requirements, tasks and solutions, products and potentials.

The Melangeset for Augarten & Lobmeyr Glas, designed by LUCY.D, shows how to reinterpret the Viennese tradition of serving a glass of water with your coffee. Due to a new cup shape and a small additional plate, the Alphabecher, a classic by Lobmeyr, now forms a three-part set. The Almwellness Hotel Pierer shows that people love modern timber constructions, especially in tourism. Over the past 10 years, in cooperation with the carpentry of Josef Goebel, almost all the rooms and sitting areas have been redesigned.
