The theme of BERLIN DESIGN WEEK 2021 is “New Traditions”.
Crises require a discourse for trail-blazing strategies. Clear-cut, sustainable and trend-setting design can initiate a new normal. Business, research and decision-makers need the creative power of design, its fresh ideas, new strategies and concepts for a society in transition and vice versa.

Designers, studios, cultural institutions, universities and companies can register for participation in the curated 2021 program from December 2020. All information will be published on our website, via facebook, instagram and our newsletter. See you in May 2021, stay healthy!



Due to the increasing spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 and unforeseeable development of the crisis, BERLIN DESIGN WEEK 2020, scheduled for 30 April to 10 May, has been cancelled. Due to the expansion of BERLIN DESIGN WEEK to locations all over the city and the internationality of our participants, an alternative date is unfortunately not feasible. We will use the year to expand the format so that we can start in 2021 with an even broader BERLIN DESIGN WEEK in spring.
