Contemporary design, works of companies, designers and trends from Czechia and from abroad. That all were united by the theme Limitations. At the third year spoke Lex Pott, Studio SWINE or Jakub Mařík. We organized a trip to TON factory, creative workshops and film screenings. Limitations didn’t limit us at all.

In 2016 we filled the streets with the design too. The theme of the second year was Money – and it was clinking everywhere. At exhibitions in an old Bata factory and at the main square, at Vepřo Knedlo Design workshops or at a conference, where Otto Fabri, Michal Vlček and Petr Pištělák spoke.

works in the contest

First exhibitions, first achievements, first experiences. Zlin was full of design for a first time, thanks to KOMA modules at the main square. Exhibitions at a chateau were curated by a creative group OKOLO lead by Adam Štěch. Speakers at the conference were Maxim Velčovský or Veronika Ruppert. The premiere was a success.
