It's all about humanity - Łódź Design Festival

7th international Łódź Design Festival
17 - 27 October 2013

In October I was in Łódź for FashionPhilosophy Fashion Week Poland and despite the busy schedule I got a last-minute chance to visit the Łódź Design Festival,
currently the most important international scale event focusing on design in Poland.
The festival started in 2007 and since than serves as a platform for arts communities with an interest in the broadly understood area of design and for businesses to exchange thoughts and experiences.
Different faces of design including industrial design, arts and crafts design, graphic design, architecture, or fashion are presented. The heart of Łódź Design Festival is the main programme comprising curated exhibitions, complemented and enhanced by an open, extensive accompanying programme.
Its highlights include: lectures by world known experts (which this year include Jurgen Bey and Deyan Sudjic), contests for young designers, and the portfolio review that brings together art school students and graduates and professionals (curators, designers and manufacturers) to enable the former to face off their ideas and get feedback.

Under the title 'It's all about humanity' this years edition has been divided into three theme's: Eating, Inhabitation and Empathy. The theme's are expressed through a great variety of projects and a very strong showcase of Polish design. It proves again that Poland is really up-and-coming in many fields.

Take a look at my selection with the picture report below.
