MAK DESIGN NITE in the course of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK. A MAK ART SOCIETY event in cooperation with the MAK
For the artist and designer Rolf Sachs, everything is design: language, upbringing, how we move and what we eat––everyone
is a designer. For MAK Design Nite, a happening has been conceived that describes Sachs’s understanding of the world around
him using keywords. With these keywords, he captures the effect of a chair and the sensation of surfaces, while personal topics
such as tolerance and childhood also become an expression of his take on design.
Rolf Sachs (* 1955 in Lausanne) is well known for his conceptual approach, which he applies to many disciplines––from photography,
sculpture, and installations to architecture projects and stage sets.
