About Virtual Design Festival

Virtual Design Festival is the world's first online design festival, taking place from 15 April to 30 June.

The festival has already generated substantial interest around the world, with contributions lined up from many leading designers.

"The global design community has collaborated to launch the first virtual design festival in response to the coronavirus lockdown," wrote The Guardian newspaper.

Designer Ron Arad described VDF as "a great initiative to bring us together at this extraordinary time," while Tom Dixon said: "The Virtual Design Festival allows us an unexpected digital platform to describe our latest thinking."

"Thank you Dezeen for keeping the light on," said Stefano Giovannoni. "I look forward to this digital festival with Dezeen," said Yves Behar.
