BRAND NEW WORLD CONFERENCE / DESIGN DAY

The second day of the Conference ended as it started – with presentations from the most successful Swiss creatives. During his presentation “7 lucky years”, industrial designer Nicolas Le Moigne described his experiences in different areas of design he has been involved in since 2007.

The audience had the opportunity to meet the famous architect Christian Kerez, creator of the double family home with only one wall – partition wall! This unusual house in Zurich has only one wall which divides it in two. Famous artists, Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann, better known as Lang / Baumann, showed extraordinary interventions that radically alter public space or decorate interiors of art institutions. Beautifully presented, their colorful, experimental, and rigorous projects are a call for more audacity in creating temporary installations that often seem to promise access to a hidden world.

The Belgrade Design Week was the best design conference I have ever enjoyed – the specific spirit of the city in a kind of in between status, the rough tension which can still be felt ten years after the bombs, the pride and the looking for new orientation especially in the young generation – all this is giving the BDW a special flair far away from the current events of the global design circus. In addition the enthusiastic organizational team trying hardly but unsuccessfully to keep the program along the schedules, the informal exchange between the international speakers, the loss of any discipline, the parties on the river … what ever and how ever the interrelations between these aspects are working – it makes the BDW an unique, likeable, inspiring and productive event, I will never forget.
