Now in it's 10th year, DMY Berlin has grown into an extremely diverse 10 day design festival, and the organizers still place an emphasis on providing a platform for younger designers.
For the first time DMY played host to the official "Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland" design award which took place in the former Tempelhof airport. The awards are broken into four categories; Product Design, Communication, Ecology, and Youngsters, and for football-loving design fans, the venue provided live screenings of the Euro Football Cup.
There was a strong emphasis on visitor interactivity such as "Shapes in Play" which translates a persons voice into a flower vase form, and the "We are Rundlauf" project allowing people to design and produce their very own CNC'd ping-pong racket (and of course play with it).
Satellite show highlights included "China New Design - Revisit and Reflect", focusing on the rapid transformation of Chinese aesthetics, lifestyle, culture and society. The "Taste Festival" in Direktorenhaus was about "everything" food related, and "Connecting Concepts" by the Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion. Check it all out in our gallery!
