This annual, international event focuses on design, innovation and business, and is aimed at both industry professionals and the general public alike. Organised by BCD (Barcelona Centre de Disseny), this year’s special 10th anniversary edition will be happening in and around the new Disseny Hub Barcelona in Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes, and includes a special programme of more than 50 activities, from workshops, conferences and exhibitions, to presentations, debates and networking.
The week will kick off with the ‘Timeless Massimo Vignelli’ exhibition, curated by Husmee, which pays homage to the late design genius. The Food Design Event will bring creative gastronomy to the stage in a collaborative project by renowned local designers and chefs, whilst Ecodesign Day takes a look at the ‘fixers movement’, which emphasises the environmental benefits of repairing products and objects for reuse.
Out and about, you can discover the city’s creative potential with a design tour of Poblenou, where you will meet studios of creative professionals firsthand, or dig a little deeper with the OFF BDW programme, which presents a series of parallel activities organised and hosted by studios and creative companies across different neighbourhoods of the city. Together with FADfest (June 29th-July 5th), the BDW forms a key element of the Barcelona Design Festival, which promises a month filled with creativity.
