A smart thing is Belgrade Design week, inviting great speakers from the whole world and make them meet, discuss, comment and expose their thought and quotes in a very distressed manner in one of the most wonderful and preserved town in Eastern Europe. Thanks I met nice and passionate people. I loved Belgrade DESIGN WEEK

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.
