The fifth edition of Madrid Design Festival features an extensive exhibition programme and hosts leading figures in national and international design.
Women's voices in design are prominent in this year's edition with the participation of Jane Withers, Hella Jongerius, Anna Heringer, Patricia Urquiola and Izaskun Chinchilla. They speak about their projects, philosophy and how they are creating new environments for a sustainable future.
The relationship between design and active ageing is also being addressed at the festival with proposals that analyse the potential of design and its contributions to building cities that are friendlier for senior citizens.
In addition to the festival, the MINI Design Award is given out for the second year. The award showcases the creative excellence of designers in improving urban life.
