Start listening to Design CANTEEN
Do you have a spare moment and are looking for a podcast that will give you a good dose of information from inspiring personalities from the world of design? Listen to our Design CANTEEN.
Design inherently belongs to Zlin. Design influences the life of every citizen, often unnoticed. We will give it a space to shine and to be understood by people, to be appreciated and to inspire.
The thematic setting of the tenth edition does not want to project in the dramaturgy everything that has been and look back. On the contrary, it looks forward and reflects on what kind of future is design creating? How will we face the challenges that lie ahead? And how will we harness the potential of current innovation and design for a better future?
A week of experiences
Zlín will come alive with design day and night. Exhibitions, cultural experiences, installations in modules, lectures, workshops, fashion shows, excursions and unbeatable parties. The atmosphere cannot be described, you have to experience it!
What do they say about us?
“The event, connected to Tomáš Bata University, regularly presents the best of the local design scene. During the accompanying programme, you have the chance to listen to the visions of international leaders in the field, which have often not been seen in Prague before. No wonder. The event is produced at an excellent level.”
“The city of Zlín was originally built on a vision of inclusion, social belonging and sustainability and has been a great inspiration for us. We can’t stop talking about how much of an inspiration Zlin Design Week was for us participants, the students involved, the speakers and the exhibitors from Norway. We are convinced that Zlin Design Week is unique and deserves national recognition and support.”
Jannicke Hølen and Knut Bang
“Design Week can open your eyes. How interesting design is all around us. What all falls into that box. How advanced design is all over the Czech Republic. And that a student event can be professional and well done.”
