Virtual Design Festival is the world's first online design festival, taking place from Wednesday 15 April to 10 July.

Each weekday, VDF will feature a mixture of cultural and commercial content created by Dezeen or in partnership with organisations, individuals and brands.

With much of the world in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the global architecture and design community is, along with many other sectors, facing unprecedented challenges.

Virtual Design Festival ( is a platform that will bring the architecture and design world together to celebrate the culture and commerce of our industry, and explore how it can adapt and respond to extraordinary circumstances.

We will host a rolling programme of online talks, lectures, movies, product launches and more. It will complement and support fairs and festivals around the world that have had to be postponed or cancelled and it will provide a platform for design businesses, so they can, in turn, support their supply chains.

"While we cannot pretend that these are normal times, we can at least explore alternative ways of sharing design, helping others, coming together as a global community and doing business," said Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
