What’s the difference between design and art? This year’s Vienna Design Week went a long way to answering that perennial question. Designers, artists, architects and educators from all over central Europe used this platform to interrogate how and why we live the way we do, and proposed intriguing, absorbing or simply beautiful solutions.
