BDW 2014 Location: Old Staklopan factory, Dorćol, Belgrade
The central part of this year’s BDW – workshops, conference and exhibitions – are staged at the OLD STAKLOPAN FACTORY – Strahinjića Bana Street 7 – 9 in Dorćol, 6th – 12th October, under the patronage of the owner – GORENJE.
Belgrade Design Week is a one-off – a unique set-up that is free from the corporate atmosphere that so often pervades other such events. The energy, optimism and warmth of Jovan and his team flows through every event – lectures, workshops, meals & drinks alike!
I’ve never been good at sitting in a dark lecture hall for more than an hour or so at a time but found myself doing three lectures back to back at Belgrade – such was the quality of speakers. Timetabling was crazy at times but at BDW everybody seems happy to ‘go with the flow’ – and has an even better time for doing so. The City of Belgrade should be very proud of this gem!
