BDW on Wallpaper

If May belongs to New York Design Week and the Venice Art Biennale, June is all about Belgrade. Since its launch in 2005, Belgrade Design Week has grown into a world-class destination, drawing in top creatives from its peers to the West and Far East, but also from a great pool of local Eastern European talent. Suddenly there is no finer place for a designer to be as spring yields to summer.

The eighth annual festival begins today. But the biggest draw is the three-day innovation conference, held in the city’s Museum of Contemporary Art, the modernist landmark that closed in 2008 for renovations and has yet to reopen. Visitors can experience the 1965 structure as a VIP, and draw from a programme of stellar lecturers that include furniture designer Christophe Pillet, the experimental design practice Troika and Swedish architect Johannes Norlander.

Beginning on Thursday 6 June, the city will play host to some of the world’s most innovative designers – not to mention Serbian stars like corporate-identity practice Gigodesign. Wolff Olins principals Owen Hughes and Christopher Moody will lecture on their most influential work. And Zaha Hadid will discuss her upcoming Beko project at Belgrade’s Kalemegdan, her first project in South Eastern Europe.

If you can’t make it to the actual event, it’s possible to be there in more than spirit. Starting on 6 June at 10:00 UTC, we will co-host a live stream of the conferences over all three days on Wallpaper.com.

Due to limitations with the feed, we cannot guarantee the live stream will work on all devices. We apologise in advance if you cannot watch the talks.

My BDW began in Milan, having a crazy meeting with Jovan at the design library in ZONA TORTONA. 09:15 A short espresso with Mauricio Ribotti: "Are you sure you have a meeting with Jovan this time in the morning? It must be a mistake!" 09:40 a man with a small black suitcase enters the café: "Hi CARO!" both man hug. "Oh! Galit, you are also here?" We sit down and immediately start to talk "design”. After 3 espressos I know I have found my partner for the next revolution! Coming to BDW was wonderful, like meeting old friends. BDW is the most passionate conference, full of amazing designpeople that share impossible designdreams. I was honored to be a part of this group  - and would love to see you all again!
