DMY – International Design Festival
– June 1 – 5
DMY Berlin is a contemporary design platform founded in 2003. It developed from a
visionary nucleus of leading creative thinkers from the Berlin design scene, whose
expertise lay in the recognition and transformation of current as well as coming
trends in culture and design.
The objective from the beginning until today is to bring together the powerful
potential of contemporary design; to give it a space and setting and to expose it to a
wide array of audience. At the same time the industry and economy are given the
opportunity to get in contact with innovative developers and designers and
therefore make use of the developed synergies.
