Designblok 2015

Industrial Palace at Výstaviště - 22nd to the 27th October 2015

The seventeenth year of Designblok is upon us and is based this year in the Industrial Palace at Výstaviště. Running from the 22nd to the 27th October this is the largest festival of contemporary design and fashion in Central Europe, offering work by both Czech and foreign designers as well as a schedule of accompanying cultural events.

In previous years the festival has utilised multiple venues across the city but has taken the opportunity this time of hosting the exhibitors in the Art-Nouveau exhibition centre in Holešovice. The building has always been one that divides opinion but whether you love or loath it there’s no doubt that it will provide ample space for designers to present their work to the fullest. For visitors it should also be a more pleasant experience as previous years have often been held in stylish, but rather cramped, venues that haven’t been so nice to walk around.

The ticket price of 350kc may seem a little hefty but it’s valid for the whole week so take time to look at the schedule and plan to see a few of the associated events around the city, and if you’re looking for something unique for your home or wardrobe then this will be the place you’ll find it.
