Designs of young Serbian designers in Belgrade shop windows

This year’s Belgrade Design Week started the introduction of participants and announcement of winners of the 100% Future Serbia competition at the Delicates Monday event at the Cultural Center Grad . From 6 to 12 October the Belgradians had the opportunity to see the works of more than one hundred young Serbian designers, displayed in the shop windows from Kalemegdan to Slavija square.

The project 100% Future Serbia is a part of the Belgrade Design Week , the fourth consecutive year and is aimed at promoting talented young creatives who are showing their work for the first time, as well as at established authors who wish to exhibit in the windows of the city center. The winner of the fourth 100% Future Serbia competition was industrial designer Igor Džukovski (24).

– I participated in the competition with a remote controlled toy car, which is now exhibited in the Museum of Applied Art. I started it as a school project, at the Academy of Applied arts, Industrial Design Department. This was my first time at the competition and I think this award will help me make new acquaintances, have fun, and learn a lot and I am sure it will help my career, said Igor Džukovski.

Authors of the top ten designs won tickets for the Brand New World international conference, which was the central part of the Belgrade Design Week and it took place on 9, 10 and 11 October. The visitors and passers-by were be able to enjoy the exhibition, and at the same time discover new and interesting locations in the city center, using thousands of project maps with lists of exhibitors and shop windows, distributed through a number of info points in the city.

During the 10 year history of Normann Copenhagen, we have learned that passion for design and architecture is strongly connected to people and not places. Coming from a part of the world where DESIGN is almost part of your DNA and every household has a selection of Design Classics, does not guarantee that passion is found.   When coming to Belgrade for the BDW 2009 we found a dedication and passion at the highest level. We can only be jealous that such events, created with passion and real interest to push the viewers and visitors to the next level are not more commonly found in Denmark. That again is a tribute to the great efforts found behind BDW and we hope to be part of your events in the years to come.
