Returning for it's third year, Valencia Disseny Week (VDW) anchored by the international trade show Feria Hábitat hosted numerous satellite shows, workshops and events throughout the city. In an effort to raise awareness of design in this region which is dominated by Spain's larger cities Barcelona and Madrid, VDW also serves as a platform to connect designers with industry and the business community.
Highlights this year included the exhibition Nude at Feria Hábitat showcasing work from a few dozen emerging (mostly) Spanish designers, a tour of the LZF Lighting factory, group show Omelette-ed, and an exhibition of work by graphic designer Esteso Augustine.
