DMY holds the yearly DMY International Design Festival in Berlin in summer, which has established itself into a scene-meeting place, trend barometer, design laboratory and playground over the years.

Over a period of five days young designers and renowned creatives present the newest developments in contemporary design, giving Berlin designers the opportunity to network with the international design scene. Current developments will be showcased, future trends detected and interdisciplinary projects and utopian designs will be encouraged. The borders between art and design are often free flowing.

Today the DMY International Design Festival occupies a crucial role in the global fair- and events- calendar as an independent event format for creative, experimental and innovative design.
