    ART ON CHAIRS - Intelligentes Wachstum : KMU-Innovation

    31/03/2014

    In der nordportugiesischen Stadt Paredes ist die Möbelindustrie seit langem der wichtigste Wirtschaftszweig mit der höchsten Konzentration von Stuhlfabriken in Europa, auf die 65 % der Möbelproduktion in Portugal entfallen. War die Branche früher äußerst produktiv, so gilt sie mittlerweile als altmodisch und konservativ. Das Projekt „Art on Chairs“ hat dieser Traditionsindustrie neues Leben eingehaucht, indem es Verbindungen mit der Welt der Designer geschaffen und das Stuhlmacherhandwerk zur Kunst erhoben hat. Diese Zusammenarbeit hat die Kreativität in der Branche neu entfacht, die Produktivität gesteigert und das internationale Exportgeschäft angekurbelt.
