Berlin design formats join together for the annual BERLIN DESIGN WEEK

07In partnership with two established formats, the new Week for Berlin builds on proven models: the DESIGN MEILE BERLIN, established since 2011, and—now in its third year—state of DESIGN | BERLIN.

The Design Meile Berlin, an initiative of the regional management at berlin.CITY WEST, shows the variety and high quality of the design cluster of the City West with approximately 50 companies, above all the co-initiators stilwerk and minimum. With the largest design center in Berlin, the stilwerk has 52 exclusive design and furnishing shops on 20,000 square meters as well as other players with a unique combination of shopping and culinary delights. The Design Meile Berlin will revive the location with exhibitions, guided tours, talks and other events between Budapester Straße, Stein and Savignyplatz for design-savvy flaneurs and professionals. Interior, fashion, jewelry and photography form the core of Berlin’s Design Meile.

Another important player in the creative scene is state of DESIGN | BERLIN. The format unites fairs, showrooms, exhibitions, conferences and network evenings into a carefully curated platform to debate and demonstrate features of future design. It’s where established designers, together with newcomers, hidden champions and leading design schools and institutions come together to engage in an intense dialogue with industry professionals and design savvy consumers. The exhibition and supporting program will take place again in 2018 at VOLLGUTLAGER by Golden Box in Neukölln.

Other partners and satellites events complete the program, helping to ztransform Berlin into a creative melting pot for one week.

 

The registration deadline for all Berlin Design Week formats is June 30, 2018
