The MAK Design Info Pool (dip) was a virtual collection and presentation platform for 20th and 21st century Austrian design, which covered all aspects of craft-centered, industrial, or artistic design production in Austria. To give a comprehensive picture of Austrian design production and its exponents, the pool included renowned and present-day design positions as well as the MAK-specific crossing of design, architecture, and art. Another goal of the documentation work is to invite experts on different design epochs as commentators to analyze and evaluate definite key works of Austrian design from the collection from the end of the Wiener Werkstätte in 1932 until 2014.
Access to the MAK Design Info Pool may be granted for academic research purposes subject to prior registration.
