Yes, so it seems that November is about design in Timisoara. And I’m not just saying it, the two events that bring together the best designers in Romania speaks for themselves. In November, one of the best graphic designers in the world inspires us here in Timisoara!
Stefan Sagmeister, guest of this last session, worked with clients such as Rolling Stones, HBO, and Guggenheim Museum. He has won two Grammy awards and virtually every major international design award.
Stefan, however, talks about vast subjects related to life, such as happiness and beauty, how they relate to design and what they mean, in fact, in our daily lives. His ‘The Happy Show’ attracted more than half a million visitors from all over the world, making it the most visited graphic design show in the world.
Location: hangarul Aeroportului Cioca din Timișoara (Calea Torontalului, DN 6, km 3).
18.00 – 23.00.
Organized by: Inspire Other Travelers
Happiness is a pretty controversial topic. I know, I know there’s no definition and I’m not trying to look for one or understand the term. I take happiness as it is an emotion and try to enjoy it as much as I can.
The other event that takes place in Timisoara, on 9-11 November is the one that puts in the foreground the object design, accessories, furniture and clothes.
Timisoara Design Days gathers over 50 designers from Romania at the first event of design in Timisoara. What at first was something like “let’s have an event similar as Cluj events” turned out to be an ample project. The idea of organizing such an event in Timisoara has been in our hands for a long time. Especially because, unfortunately, the object design area is still underdeveloped in Timisoara. But Timisoara is a city that is full of cultural effervescence and winning the title of European Cultural Capital 2021 is the perfect time to develop this topic locally.
Timisoara Design Days is the result of a beautiful collaboration with Cluj-Napoca (Cluj Design Days, The Other Association) and the We Re-Create Association. It’s about the design exhibition, the thematic conferences (Interior Design – Utility and Necessity, Design Thinking, Designer Talks, Turn Design into Business), the fashion show on contemporary dance and a SUPER PARTY, Saturday night at Darc .
#MatchingDesign is the concept of the first edition that will bring together the most creative and original designs – object, clothing, furniture and accessories produced in Romania. The products will be exposed in pairs or groups, joining products from different designers to highlight new aesthetic and functional design approaches and the relationship between different designers using the objects they create as a way of communicating ideas.
Location: Bastion, Galeria Calpe
