DMY International Design Festival Berlin, 11-14 June 2015
The motto of the 13th edition of the DMY International Design Festival Berlin is 'Back to the Future'. This implies a step 'back to the roots' while at the same time moving towards a further development of the festival content. New exhibition moduli, a new internet address, more content and last but not least, a change of location all promise to make this year's festival a very exciting event. With a new competition and more attractive general conditions, DMY puts an increased focus on the new talent. The introduction of a professional visitors´day aims to promote and enhance exchange within the design business. On site, design aficionados are offered the opportunity to purchase design objects in the DMY store. A special focus is dedicated to Berlin as a design location.
The DMY International Design Festival Berlin is the most important non-subsidised event in the field of product design in Germany. Every year, national and international designers present their current products, prototypes, installations, and projects.
Here are the three most important innovations for this year:
