“Higher Purpose”. Change vs. more of the same.

The theme of BNDNWK 2022 "Higher Purpose" runs throughout the program.

Designers, design studios, design collectives, brands, companies, agencies and institutions can register for BNDNWK – from start-ups to big players, scientists and research groups, and newcomers from all industries. The pillars of our programme are diversity, ways of thinking and approaches to design that envision and shape our future. At BNDNWK, scientific progress, fresh ideas and ethical responsibility all come together to create the design of tomorrow.


You can register for BNDNWK 2022 in just three steps:


Step 1:

Fill in the pre-registration form on this page. Introduce yourself and describe the work you want to present at BNDNWK in the “Concept overview” field. Please also describe the kind of event you are planning (e.g., exhibition, talk, presentation, etc.) as well as the dates and, if possible, times at which BNDNWK visitors can attend your event. In terms of dates and times, your concept can range from a one-time event to a format that spans 11 days.

Once you have submitted the form, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing a summary of all of the entered information. You will receive an answer from the BNDNWK programme team within two weeks of submitting your application.


Step 2:

If your event is approved by the BNDNWK 2022 programme team, you will receive login data for your registration form where you can enter further information and details about your event. Before you submit the form, make sure that you have filled in every field.

You can enter up to five events in your registration form by clicking “Add another event”. Every event is automatically assigned the same location, applicant and billing address. If you are planning different events at several locations, you will have to fill out a separate registration form for each event. Please note that we charge event fees per location. For more information, please refer to the overview of participation fees

Once you submit the form, you will once again receive a confirmation e-mail containing a summary of all the information you have sent us.


Step 3:

Once we have received detailed information about your event and your materials, we will enter this information into our digital event calendar and map. We will notify you when your event goes live in our programme. You then have 7 days to change, correct or add any information.

Last but not least, you will receive an invoice with your participation fees via e-mail.

Submitted project proposals will be evaluated and selected based on the following criteria:


  • The manner in which the project addresses new and relevant design trends and strategies
  • Its connection to the theme of this year’s BNDNWK
  • Its social, ethical and sustainable relevance and impact
  • Its maturity and presentation
  • Its innovative approach.


The fees listed below apply for one independently organised event for BNDNWK at an existing location or a location organised by the applicant. You can register up to five events at the same location for free under the same billing address.
