The Barcelona Design Week will open its doors from 12 to 20 June to celebrate the 14th edition, a new opportunity to live and enjoy an unmissable event on design, creativity and innovation in Barcelona and one of the most important Design Weeks of the international calendar (Best architecture, design and technology events for 2019 per Dezeen). The BDW is member of the World Design Weeks network.
A city event, for the city.
The Barcelona Design Week 2019 will open with a very clear goal: to bring design to people and involve the industry’s main actors in the city to share Barcelona’s design vitality with the world and the city, enhance its social and economic importance and invite the citizens to experience it. Over a week all design lovers will enjoy an extensive programme encompassing more than 120 activities open to the city, prominent among them exhibitions, workshops, talks, open doors, but also activities aimed more at the professional public to create business opportunities and facilitate the exchange of knowledge.
All areas of design
The profession, the young talent, the recognition of design excellence and culture provided by FAD. The enterprise, strategic value in terms of innovation, sustainability and competitiveness as well as the promotion of the Barcelona city brand, led by BCD. And the Museu del Disseny as the principal collaborator, contributing its heritage and public dimension together with its dissemination capacity.
La Barcelona Design Week 2019 is directed by BCD Barcelona Centre de Disseny, organised by FAD Fostering Arts and Design and BCD, in collaboration with Museu del Disseny, driven by Barcelon City Council, and supported by the Government of Catalonia.
Design in Diagonal: Experience 12 Kilometres of Creativity!
Design will be crossing the city of Barcelona during the Barcelona Design Week with a tour of creative activities for different spaces that are spread out across the almost 12 kilometres of Diagonal Avenue, a unique axis in Barcelona that will be a hotspot of design and creativity for a week.
This year, the BDW is hosting the first edition of “Design in Diagonal”, an initiative promoted by BCD Barcelona Design Centre in collaboration with The Creative Net, with the participation of flagship stores, shop windows, hotels, restaurants and other featured spaces on the city’s main artery. These spaces will open their doors to the public to show off their interpretation of this year’s motto for the Barcelona Design Week, “Transitions”, through various creatives whose goal is to help the public get a closer look at the role of design.
Exhibitions, round tables, architectural routes, talks, workshops and installations will be just a few of the key aspects to experiencing the transitions proposed by the creatives: urban, social, cultural, disruptive or digital transitions will invade some of the most representative sites on Diagonal Avenue.
