Sustainability is an important topic for many different fields: That's why it's the focus of Designer's Open, which takes place in Leipzig.
The Designers’ Open sees itself as a trade fair for design, and as a communication forum and sales platform for the industry. This year, it is taking the pressing topic of sustainability under the slogan of “DO! Future Matter” and looks at new materials for the future. The importance of materials research for the future of design is the focus of the event curated by trend researcher Niels Holger Wien. It includes an open panel discussion with textile and product designer Simone Post, who has been working with recyclable materials for many years. In addition, exhibitors will present their products in the areas of research & industry, fashion & accessories, interiors & furniture, and graphic & media. Visitors to the Grassi Fair, which takes place at the same time in the Grassi Museum of Applied Arts, receive reduced admission and students pay 6.50€ for a day pass. The conference GrafikPOSITIONEN can be attended for free, interested persons only have to sign up for it.
