JELOVAC AT GLOBAL DESIGN FORUM

 

Jovan Jelovac attended the first Global Design Forum, a new one-day event at the London Design Festival that brought together a star-alliance of design luminaries, organizations and talents to debate the issues and pressure points that are really affecting the design industry.

Leading local and international speakers had been specifically chosen from a variety of backgrounds, from start-up entrepreneurs to established corporate leaders, from key public sector figures to cultural pacesetters.

OUR BLOG

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.
