Since 2006, the association for the representation of designers' interests 'designaustria' (the history starts in 1927) supports the awareness for the cultural role of design in everyday life through the networking platform designforum with own exhibition space at MuseumsQuartier in Vienna. One of the latest shows was about natural, local resources and regional craftsmanship presented with lifestyle objects by Slovenian designers under the title 'The Future Of Living' (article).

Today, designforum Wien revealed previews of the next exhibition 'Austrian Brand Stories' scheduled from 9 June until 12 September 10 October 2021. Among the pictures showing examples of products and logos by important brands founded in Austria, the iconic trachten pair ('tracht' means traditional clothing) by beverages brand Almdudler in the original version and in the special edition on occasion of the EuroPride 2019 which happened in Vienna.
