BRAND NEW WORLD CONFERENCE / DESIGN DAY / KEYNOTE : CH AMBASSADOR

The second day of the conference was opened by Tom Strala, whose pieces are radiant with passion and imagination, a Swiss architect who designs chairs, tables and lamps instead of buildings. Timeless designs produced by his studio are a result of his need to create awareness, essential craftsmanship and enthusiasm for research. His pieces are works of art which inspire the viewer to think about life.

The next presentation was by the Swedish architect and designer Jonas Wagell, known by the projects of 15 sqm prefabricated houses, such as the’ Mini House” and “Arjan Sauna “. He explained the term “generous minimalism” and whether the “Mini House” project will affect the way we live. Special attention was devoted to the field of communication. Jeremy Ettinghausen, a representative of the world’s most awarded British independent advertising agency BBH, famous for its commercials for Levi’s, Audi, Johnnie Walker and PlayStation, explained what it takes to win a Cannes lion.

It was great that the speakers and the attendees were actually to share ideas and express their views as opposed to solely exhibition purposed fairs. It was very impressive, how successful and innovative individuals from various disciplines spoke about their worlds and how the audience interactively took part. To have attended and to have experienced this interaction at Belgrade Design Week made me very pleased. I would like to extend my congratulations to the BDW organizers due to this successful event.
