Can you picture the world without the rapid development of household appliance technology? The exhibition Gorenje at a Touch shows an interesting overview of the ways these innovations changed our every-day life. You can see the household appliances that marked significant individual developmental stages of the Gorenje, Slovenian leading company. The company cooperates with many world-renowned designers and uses its brands to improve the quality of life of people that use its products in as many as ninety countries around the world.

Beside the technological turning points, the stress is also on the development of energy efficient household appliances, which gives the exhibition an important ecological note. The exhibition is based on the earlier exhibition, Gorenje with Vision, that was on show in the Velenje Gallery as a part of the network project Wow, industry! (Uf, industrija!) Maribor ECC 2012.

The company that was established in the village of Gorenje in the 1950`s is a story of success. Modest beginnings with the manufacturing of a solid fuel kitchen-range Tobi, have with hard work and visionary management, grown into a global enterprise represented in 90 countries which annually produces nearly one million washing machines, tumble dryers and dishwashers. Thanks to their innovative technical-development, design and marketing departments, Gorenje has become a licensed manufacturer to a trend-setter.

The basic goal of the exhibition is to offer an overview of the company`s historical development, the importance of tradition and continuity, investment in development, the encouragement of innovation and boldness and commitment and responsibility to both the environment and the consumer.

The nostalgic past and the visionary future can be visited from Tuesday to Friday 8 am - 4 pm, on Saturday 9 am - 5 pm and on Sunday and public holidays between 10 am and 6 pm.
