To celebrate Austria's participation in EXPO 2015 in Milan, ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA is presenting the Austrian Design Explosion from June 26 - July 5, 2015 at the Triennale Design Museum, one of the most renowned design institutions in the world. The event is taking place as part of the EXPO Milano 2015 as well as the go-international internationalisation initiative run by Austria's Ministry of Science, Research and Economy and the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber. The exhibition was opened on June 26 by Dr. Heinz Fischer, President of the Federal Republic of Austria, Reinhold Mitterlehner, Vice-Chancellor and Federal Minister of Science, Research and Economy, and Christoph Leitl, President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber.

Key examples of Austria’s design and technology landscape will be presented, along with work from other related sectors such as architecture, fashion, music, film and art. The selection of work on show illustrates how the ingenuity of Austrian companies, creative entrepreneurs and academics has helped to make the world a more sustainable, beautiful and better place – from the start of the industrial revolution to today’s digital age.

Among key classics like the Thonet Nr. 14 chair, an Adolf Loos glass series for Lobmeyr, creations by Helmuth Lang and Sachertorte, technical innovations like  the KTM Freeride E 2015, voest alpine car parts, and the Camcopter of Schiebel, a RIEGL partner for airborne laser scanning, will be on the show.
