Open Call

The exhibition planned for 2023, Ashes & Sand, will focus on glass.

We are looking for original projects in glass and young designers interested in exploring this medium. Designers wishing to be included in the exhibition (not the residency!) are welcome to send a project proposal (a pdf of approximately 10 pages inclusive of CV, portfolio and description and visualisation of your proposal) to our curator at We are particularly interested in new projects that are conceptual, research-oriented and show the diversity in use and style of glass. Projects that have a connection to the historical context of Schloss Hollenegg are particularly welcome.

Please note that we are an institution dedicated to design, so whatever you submit should have a use or be research oriented in terms of material, technique or storytelling. Please note that Schloss Hollenegg for Design is a platform, and cannot offer production budgets.

The deadline for submission is Friday 30th September 2022. Designers will receive a reply by 1st November 2022.
