Design lovers from all around the world are coming to Łódź this week. From 19th to 27th May 2018 you simply must take part at Łódź Design Festival.
We have prepared a photostory and coverage directly from Łódź for these who will visit this design celebration and also for those who will not be able to attend it.
The festival focuses on education, critical discussion and the search for inspiration. The motto of this year’s, 12th edition is REFLEKSJE (REFLECTIONS). The human-technology relationship will become the focus of attention this time. This issue is addressed by the main exhibition “Nothing but flowers”, prepared by Łódź Design Festival (curator Agata Połeć). Seeking answers to the question about the connections between us and contemporary objects, the Festival is encouraging to reflect on the importance of modern crafts and the value we attribute to the work of human hands. This year, the event also promises a greater presence in public space and the development of elements of the program addressing urban and architectural issues.
What to see?
1. make me! – an international competition for young designers and students of design (20-35 years), promoting innovative projects, experimenting with the material, seeking new interpretations of the existing functions.
