BELGRADE DESIGN WEEK 2014
Presenting the BDW DIZAJNPARK exhibition PART TWO – at the OLD STAKLOPAN FACTORY – in Belgrade, Stahinjića Bana Street 7 – 9, Dorćol, 7th – 11th October, free entry from 10h to 20h – POWERED BY GORENJE
The BDW DIZAJNPARK exhibitions, this year proudly powered by GORENJE, showcase the latest works of from over ten countries. It is a striking display of creativity which surprises, educates and enriches the atmosphere of the event, in yet another “forgotten” iconic urban location, reclaimed by BDW from years of neglect and complete wipe out from the collective memory of the citizens of Belgrade. After finding and rejuvenating the at time empty Palace of Federation, the bombed Hotel Jugoslavija, the abandoned Kluz department store, the shut down Museum of Modern Art, along with marking numerous other iconic locations in past ten years, BDW in 2014 proudly gives you another gem of Serbian industrial architectural heritage: the old STAKLOPAN factory, smack in the middle of Belgrade’s bustling “Silicon Valley” – the Strahinjića Bana Street -yet covered by a layer of invisibility – like the famous Phantom building in the movie The Shadow.

Imagine (is) the latest concept of the city bike ride. Designed and crafted by DVOIKA, it is extremely solid, yet elegant and sophisticated wooden bicycle designed to provide new experience of cycling as it runs smoothly and almost stealthy. It allows cyclists to fully enjoy the ride, to be more relaxed and open up the senses so that he or she may perceive the city in its full scale.
