Launched fifteen years ago, this independent exhibition and arts event series has become one of the most important of its kind in the region. It now presents the works of over 100 designers, jewel designers and visual artists from 14 countries. For the first time in its history, a selection of the exhibition will travel to Bratislava (Bratislava Design Weekend) and Vienna (designaustria).

In addition to designer objects, visitors can see object simulations, contemporary jewellery, works that ended up as virtual creations on account of the pandemic, projects that focus on eco-consciousness and social responsibility, projects that treat generic boundaries liberally, along with the films on these, and works that explore the cultural and creative aspects of gastronomy. The exhibition will be accompanied by all-arts and professional events, contemporary dance and music performances, and themed guided tours by the curators.
