Designers Fair 2012


DESIGNERS FAIR has a surprise again this year: a new exhibition venue – this time right at the center of the DQE – Design Quartier Ehrenfeld design activities.

With a network of two exhibition venues, an overview of the young design scene is being shown. In addition to the new exhibition format at DQE-Halle, there is an extra space for design collaborations.

Refreshments are on hand and there is entertainment on several evenings. In addition, selected design labels are exhibiting their new creations.
