More about "World Wide Things Collection"

The World Wide Things Collection collects great design from the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, connects great designers, products, manufacturers and distributors, and develops a great marketplace for the UNESCO Cities of Design.The ProjectThe World Wide Things Collection is a worldwide marketplace for carefully selected design products. This growing selection is presented in different formats such as exhibitions, shops, conferences, meetings, conventions and online. The collection acts literally as “Hyperloop” as it displays products created in the UNESCO Cities of Design and moreover, facilitates the exchange of ideas, designs and best practices. The design products presented in the collection can be bought through online shops.

This years exhibition will be part of Design Month Graz 2019 and will display about 120 products from seven UNESCO Cities of Design: Puebla, Istanbul, Mexico City, Detroit, Singapur, Saint-Etienne and Graz. The exhibition design refers to the “Hyperloop” concept, a high-speed transportation system. The products are displayed on a seemingly endless table board, that winds smoothly through the showroom. The exhibition design is developed as open-source-concept that is easy to rebuild, so each UNESCO Cities of Design is invited to set up a similar exhibition.
