Designblok 2022, one of the largest design and fashion festivals in central Europe will take place in October with the overriding theme “forest.” Spanning five days, Designblok 2022 brings together new products by designers and manufacturers with an emphasis on Czech design and creations from the Central European regions.
The annual event, which was founded in 1999 takes place in two main venues. The Gabriel Loci Monastery in Prague’s Smíchov district will showcase contemporary international design from international brands, manufacturers, designers and design studios while the Museum of Decorative Arts will serve as a conceptual exhibition space, just as it did at last year’s event. The event will feature hundreds of exhibitions presented by renounced designers and artists, and the opportunity will also be given to local artists to showcase their work. There will be opportunities for awards and recognition for the participating artists.
An entire floor of the museum will be reserved for 24 contemporary Czech designers who focus on craftsmanship, building on the rich Czech tradition. Following this years forest theme, exhibitors will focus on the use of natural materials, traditional Czech crafts and environmental issues.
