    Design, which is so closely connected with the development of our society, is manifested in formal, aesthetic and everyday ways. As it is a mirror of our society the confrontation with design involves cultural, social, economic and aesthetic aspects. The conference DESIGN07 (designzeroseven) organised by Vienna University of Applied Arts and curated by the Neigungsgruppe Design plans to establish a critical design discourse on current themes from the area of design theory and practice.
