Young Talents
8 Countries, 22 Talented Designers from Europe

14.05.2023 to 24.05.2023
Kulturforum

During Berlin Design Week, the exhibition Young Talents ‒ in cooperation with EUNIC Berlin (part of the European Union National Institutes for Culture network) ‒ presents the next generation’s approaches to stimulating and future-oriented product design from eight European countries.

The festival, which takes “Resilience” as its overarching theme, once again focuses on design as an impetus for forward-looking change and as a creative basis encouraging sustainability. Berlin Design Week celebrates the diversity of the local and national design scene, and through Young Talents invites talented young designers from Europe to introduce their works and projects. The latest trends and innovations in the design world are showcased.

In the exhibition at the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts), young product designers from Estonia, Italy, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom show their current works concerned with social impact, green impact and sustainability.
