In cooperation with Polish Institute Berlin, the focus presents showcases of over 40 design studios, companies, design schools as well as comprehensive exhibitions shedding light upon the contemporary design production of Germany's second largest neighbour country: From showcases by established design studios and brands to product launches by renowned design schools and emerging designers.

Furthermore, the focus will present comprehensive, thematic exhibitions, including a showcase of award-winning designs from East and Central Europe, a curated selection by Łódź Design Festival as well as an exhibition by Gdynia Design Center on the subject of improvisation: the focus is on the processes, ideas and concepts that have played a crucial role in the design production.

The participants have been selected by an advisory board of acclaimed protagonists of the Polish design scene including design publicist Prof. Czesława Frejlich, Prof. Michał Stefanowski, Vice President of Polish Design Union SPFP as well as the curators Agnieszka Jacobson-Cielecka and Marek Cecuła.

The exhibitions and showcases will be complemented by conceptual installations and a varied program of lectures, talks and live interviews. All exhibitions and events will take place within the DMY International Design Festival at Airport Berlin Tempelhof from June 5-9.

The Polish Design Focus is realized in cooperation with Polish Institute Berlin, supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Poland, the City of Warsaw and the Foundation of German-Polish Cooperation (Stiftung für Deutsch-Polnische Zusammenarbeit).
