Trend Report: Berlin Design Week

For the second year running the city of Berlin becomes a platform for innovative design as it plays host to Berlin Design Week. BNDNWK invites designers, cultural institutions, galleries and studios from around the globe, with a particular emphasis on those from Germany, to encourage dialogue between the worlds of design, research, education and industry with a view to tackling issues surrounding ecological and societal sustainability.

This year the event is titled INFLUENCED 100 in response to the 100-year anniversary of Bauhaus, the art and design institution that was formed in Berlin. The movement’s understanding of design as a driving force of societal change is examined, serving as a timely reminder during times of instability here in the 21st century. A number of graduate exhibitions, temporary displays, talks and showroom events take place in venues across the city with some 10,000 visitors in attendance. The highly informative talks program plays a key role in instigating fresh ideas and discussion about design.
