About DMY International Design Festival Berlin
DMY International Design Festival Berlin is a contemporary design platform founded in 2003. It developed from a visionary nucleus of leading creative thinkers from the Berlin design scene, whose expertise lay in the recognition and transformation of current as well as coming trends in culture and design.
DMY holds the yearly DMY International Design Festival in Berlin in spring, which has established itself into a scene-meeting place, trend barometer, design laboratory and playground over the years.
Over a period of four days, international and German young talents and established designers present the newest developments in contemporary design, also giving Berlin designers the opportunity to network with the international design scene. Current developments will be showcased, future trends detected and interdisciplinary projects and utopian designs will be encouraged. The borders between art and design are often free flowing.
Today the DMY International Design Festival occupies a crucial role in the global fair- and events-calendar as an independent event format for creative, experimental and innovative design.
