For us designers, September must be one of the most exciting times: it is the time when all the hard work from summer is finally being put out and the new trends and inspiration are floating wherever you look. Overwhelmed by fashion weeks in NYC or London, other cities follow as well.
The capital of Slovakia is not an exception: hosting their annual BADW: Bratislava Design Week 2014! BADW takes place from 22–28 September in the beautiful building of the former food market at Laurinska 14 in Bratislava.
The main topic of the festival is Work that should be expressed through variety of exhibitions and workshops as well as during The Midl Design Forum hosting lectures and seminars with leading Slovak and international designers.
My personal picks?
Definitely Benjamin Hubert, famous representative of the best of young British designer sphere. You might now him as the designer of probably the lightest dining table in the world – it weights only 9 kg whilst ensuring long lasting durability. Apart from his products, you could also join him for his lecture during the BADW.
And with my love for everything Berlin, Llot Llov is definitely on my to-view list. Their playfulness, humor and originality give them a strong differentiation point within the multi-genre design scene in Berlin. Just like me, they love cities; Berlin in particular.
