Lighting highlights at DMY International Design Festival
DMY International Design Festival started today and it extends itself until 9th June.
The historic city airport Berlin Tempelhof is the main stage of the festival’s central exhibition, where visitors are invited to explore new design products, prototypes and material innovations.
Be surprised to know that there are over 500 exposers, among designers, companies and universities that showcase their latest works.
This year’s Polish Design Focus will give a comprehensive overview of the contemporary design production and culture of our second largest neighbor country. The focus presents showcases of over 40 studios, companies and universities as well as thematic exhibitions, conceived in cooperation with Polish Institute Berlin.
The idea of the project was to create a product that could be made in a selected craftsman’s workshop. As it turned out, specialists and their workshops providing unique knowledge, skills, or traditional technology have recently been affected by the crisis. As a result, a group of seven designers and six workshops emerged: spring production, a shoemaker’s, leather craft workshop, iron foundry, metal spinning workshop, and tailor’s.
