The MAK Design Collection was established in 2005 and represents a broad spectrum of design output from Austria. The design
concept in question encompasses a multifaceted range of aspects, from industrial production and handcrafted manufacture to
unique art objects and prototypes, from utility objects and fashion to graphic arts and media design.
The circa 1,500 works, work groups and bundles of documentation contained in this collection encompass the areas of fine art
and architecture: from avant-garde movements of the 1920s to current artistic stances, the holdings encompass works in various
media such as drawing, painting, photography video and film, as well as objects, sculptures, installations, environments and
architecture-related contributions including designs, models and animations.
