DMY 2011 – The International Design Festival Berlin

Posted by Malgorzata Stankiewicz on 01.06.2011 - Tagged as: , , ,

 

DMY, Berlin’s much-celebrated International Design Festival returns for its 9th edition.

 

‘The DMY International Design Festival Berlin will anew take place in the impressive architecture of historic city airport Berlin Tempelhof. The central exhibition showcases pioneering and foresighted works by over 500 professional designers, brands and new talents. Reflecting on design as a full circle system, the central exhibition is accompanied by a vast program of satellite exhibitons and events such as Designer Talks, Lectures, Open Design and Material Workshops. Honouring the talent of young and professional designers, the largest festival for product design in Germany will also celebrate foresighted works within the Ceremony of the DMY Awards and the design contest for young talents of IKEA Stiftung.

 

‘While a great amount of tools has been invented to make our lives ea- sier and more efficient, we rarely have the time to reflect upon our daily practices and our life with things. Most of the things that surround us are a result of a design process. They are not simply given, but repre- sent continuous development processes and thus are subject to change. Instead of just mirroring the status quo, the DMY International Design Festival highlights forward-thinking products and research-driven pro- jects reflecting upon the social impact of contemporary product design.’
