Design weeks are periods of time (usually a week, but sometimes even a month) in a certain location , in which there’s a celebration for design.

During the design weeks, there are usually many design related events happening, such as exhibitions, seminars and meetings, therefore for us, design lovers, it is the perfect time to visit that destination, as we can always find amazing places to visit, parties to attend and get to know amazing and inspiring people, who are as passionate for design as we are.

We can see design weeks as a festivity for design, with design lovers getting together to celebrate design and share views, creations and opinions, during the many design events that occur during that time.

Nowadays, there are hundreds of design weeks all over the world, from the most famous to the most underground, some more related with a specific design subject, others celebrating design as a whole, but all of them have one thing in common: the passion for design – and that is enough to make it worth the visit, isn’t it?

Considering how many design weeks there is, it was impossible for us to include every single one in this calendar – but have a look below to find our favourites!

The comfort that a chair must have was exhaustively thought and we went to the refinement of having arm rests that are thinner underneath so that they fit between the fingers and the hands. There is also a cavity over the arms extremities to conform the thumb.

Like I said before, Zagreb Design Week is the most important event of design happening in Croatia, despite being a young event, it had a lot of success until now. The reason for this is because this event gathers a wonderful variety of design and artists not only from Croatia, but also from many other nationalities.

The characteristics of this event are done in such a way that its visitors get more inspiration year after year, with incredible results and innovation to inspire every design lovers, or even every person who look forward to something unique, something different to put into their homes.

Besides the events, which by itself are a pretty good reason to visit NYCxDESIGN, in there you can also the NYCxDESIGN Awards, a competition that outstands the best that has been done in the design field.

“Interior Design magazine and ICFF present the first annual NYCxDESIGN Awards, a global design competition celebrating outstanding achievement across major areas of design—from architecture to interiors, from products to collectibles, from craft to technology. This open and inclusive awards program will serve as a connector pulling together and rewarding excellence in design achievement from the over 500 events that comprise New York City’s showcase of global design.

Product and project submissions are open to all fairs, exhibitors, and design firms until April 13th. Product entrants will be judged by a panel of design luminaries and projects by Cindy Allen, Interior Design’s Editor in Chief, and Interior Design editors. Honorees will be announced at the NYCxDESIGN opening night event at Industry City on May 7. Winners will be announced on May 14 prior to ICFF’s Opening Night Party at the MoMA.”
