Since 2021, the community "Design in Gesellschaft", DING for short, has been occupying an old workshop with an inner courtyard in Engerthstraße in Vienna's 20th district. The place was born out of the need for a working environment where design from different disciplines can meet: from social design to speculative design, from design research to interior and sustainable furniture design to urban fish farming: what unites all those who work here is the conviction that design plays a decisive role in shaping our future. And that this requires community, spontaneous alliances, mutual exchange. Engerthstraße 124 features a big hall for exhibitions, wood and metal workshops, office and workshop spaces.

We’ve been awarded “Future Communities 2021” and “Making Spaces” by the wirtschaftsagentur, and are currently developping a program to transform our studio community into an offspace for design.
Drop by for coffee!
