Last week I attended the FAB Demo Day at MODUL University on Kahlenberg.

To my delight, this was not yet another presentation / pitch of your average bunch of tech start-ups trying to solve problems by creating one or two more of it alike – or solving those from an earlier iteration. (Software eats my shorts!)

Instead, the stage was full of admirable ideas, products (which I am sure many have already seen in one of those competitive pitch shows on broadcast TV, a medium I hardly come across twice a year in the meantime) – and most of all: people.

The most impressive ones for me are Alpengummi with their sustainable and natural chewing gum – no oil, plastic or unhealthy sweetener – and Unverschwendet who save produce for disposal and turn it into delicious jams, sirup, chutneys and sauces. (The vanilla-apricot jam simply rocks!)

Unfortunately, neither of both were the jury’s favorite. Nevertheless, I think they will be heard from again – fingers crossed.

Kudos to the MU StartupHub for organizing the event. Afterwards I took the one hour walk downhill to Heiligenstadt chewing one single Alpengummi – which actually lasted the whole trip, beating the “petrol gums” I tried so far by lengths.

And that is why Austria invented the Schnitzel.

They probably used the Cheerio-like rings in rituals, not the kitchen.

Reading Design is an online archive of critical writing about design.

The idea is to embrace the whole of design, from architecture and urbanism to product, fashion, graphics and beyond. The texts featured here date from the nineteenth century right up to the present moment but each one contains something which remains relevant, surprising or interesting to us today.
