The year 2011 marked the debut of BDW’s new project, 100% FUTURE SERBIA, which presented almost 150 Serbian designers in 115 shop windows, as unique design exhibition the people of Belgrade have never experienced this way before. With special launch support from SUPERKVART, BDW organizes a city premiere, a true street block-party in partnership with BELEF, on Sunday June 3rd, under patronage of the Serbian Ministry of Culture.
Visitors and passers-by alike, will again be able in 2012, from 03 – 17 June, to enjoy the exhibited designs while walking from Kalemgdan to Slavija in over 100 shop windows and discover interesting places with gems of new Serbian design, by following a map distributed all over the city. With the project 100% FUTURE SERBIA ON BELEF we support the young and upcoming national design scene, and by posting the exhibitions in Belgrade shop windows, it supports the city’s trade and hospitality industry in the times of crisis, directing the attention of the media, the institutions and the public to all the forms of creative industries for two whole weeks.

During the 10 year history of Normann Copenhagen, we have learned that passion for design and architecture is strongly connected to people and not places. Coming from a part of the world where DESIGN is almost part of your DNA and every household has a selection of Design Classics, does not guarantee that passion is found.
When coming to Belgrade for the BDW 2009 we found a dedication and passion at the highest level. We can only be jealous that such events, created with passion and real interest to push the viewers and visitors to the next level are not more commonly found in Denmark.
That again is a tribute to the great efforts found behind BDW and we hope to be part of your events in the years to come.
