Returning to the Bulgarian capital for it's third year, Sofia Design Week took over the city for eight days with a packed schedule of exhibitions, design talks and workshops. The festival—a relatively newcomer to the design calendar—is as much about generating design awareness amongst the locals as it is a platform for showcasing new and emerging design talent.
Brit Leissler was on the ground for Core77 scoping out this year's highlights including the Cherga Group exhibition which took place in Lozenets Water Tower, a dramatic setting for the young Bulgarian designers capturing the uniqueness of the city.
