In 2018, Design Month Graz focused on the topic of “tolerance”. After all, design, as well as taste, can be argued – design challenges tolerance. Who says what is beautiful? Who says what works for who and why? And why sit on courtesy of the good taste? The design month of 2018 challenged tolerance – and he demanded it.
