Belgrade Design Week



We just got back from a lightning visit to Belgrade for the second annual Belgrade Design Week, which continues until Saturday.


Here are some photos from the dinner and party last night, attended by speakers including Hella Jongerius, Patricia Urquiola, Matali Crasset, Renny Ramakers of Droog and Marva Griffin Wiltshire of Salone Satellite in Milan.

We'll add this caption when we've remembered who everyone is.
