DesignPhiladelphia begins tonight with the PopUpPlace opening party and continues through October 18. View the online guide here.
DesignPhiladelphia demonstrates, supports and promotes the ability that design has to generate innovation, solve problems, enhance daily life and influence both the perception and economics of the region. If you’ve attended in the past, you know how fortunate we are that Philly hosts this incredible festival celebrating the diverse and rich design community here.
Festival events – a diverse mix of exhibitions, lectures and public forums, tours, runway shows, book signings, parties, workshops and open studios – cross design disciplines, from architecture and urban planning to industrial and fashion design, multimedia and graphic design, product and interior design. Set in boutiques, galleries, museums, universities, warehouses, public spaces and city streets, DesignPhiladelphia transforms the city into a stage for ideas and designs of the present and future, highlighting the impact design plays in our everyday lives.
This year’s theme, EXPERIENCEdesign! will spark emotions and engage the senses. There will be opportunities to see, touch, smell, hear and feel the design that surrounds us. Check it out and we hope to see you there!
