Marking its eighth successive year the Lódz Design Festival took over the Polish city of Lódz with some great original wares on show. While the design scene in Poland is still in its infancy, this year's festival showed many promising signs of local industry being keen to collaborate with the country's emerging generation of design talent. Some highlights from the shows included a local manufacturer challenging designers to reinvent the humble radiator, inspiring entries to the Make Me design competition and taking a look round Daniel Charny's prototype Fixhub space showcasing projects tackling the need for fixing.
