Design Night Festival 2013

26-29 September

Exhibitions and fashion shows, as well as seminars and workshops, introduce the world of design to the public in this well-established festival, now in its eighth year. Disäiniöö, as it is known in Estonian, showcases not only the work of Estonian designers, but also introduces designers from Finland, Italy, Belarus, and the UK. This year’s festival will include a fashion show, a pop-up design shop in Tallinn’s Kaubamaja and even a “Grandma’s baking competition.” The design competition “Back to the Roots of Estonian Design” asked participants to establish a connection with Estonian heritage and find resourceful tips from the past to create products and use materials and techniques unique to this area to distinguish Estonia from the rest.
