Design Talks is a popular accompanying program within the Furniture Fair, which will bring together in the same place, over the period of five days, all participants in the furniture industry – designers, architects, manufacturers, and visitors. Through discussions with designers, architects, creators, and leading people from the fields of design, art, culture, but also from the fields of economy, industry and manufacture, public and educational sectors, this event focuses on the role and power that design can and should have in society. Design Talks program is intended for all visitors – both professionals and amateurs. The event is a real treat because it brings together designers, educators, students, small and large manufacturers, representatives of government bodies, and the general public. Speakers come from a variety of fields and disciplines, and topics will range from furniture design, branding, graphic design to architecture, art, technology, and education. The talks are moderated by Vesna Pejović, a product designer and design educator from Serbia. We are looking forward to seeing you!
