Berlin Design Week 2024

  • Events
  • Highlights
Every year in spring, the BNDNWK presents approaches to thinking and design that envision and shape our future.

Over eleven days, exhibitions, talks, presentations, participatory projects and networking events take place at various venues throughout the city, where national and international designers, cultural institutions, companies, knowledge and research institutions present their work.

In 2024, the theme of the BERLIN DESIGN WEEK will be "INSIGHTS".
The festival aims to show how designers around the world are driving social change and economic innovation through their work, and that design has a leading role to play in addressing the great challenges of our time.

Programme highlights:

DESIGN + SCIENCE: A fusion of creativity and innovation
27 & 28 April | Behrensbau

The festival's own DESIGN + SCIENCE format will once again form the centrepiece of Design Week. With exhibitions, symposia and workshops, it focuses on the central role of design at the interface between science and research. The format scrutinises how design can function as a mediator of a culture of knowledge and as a central element of everyday life.

NEXT: Young European Design Perspectives
27 April - 5 May | Kunstgewerbemuseum

NEXT presents young design talents from Europe whose work deals with the sustainable design of the future. Initiated by EUNIC Berlin and the BERLIN DESIGN WEEK in collaboration with the Kunstgewerbemuseum der staatlichen Museen zu Berlin, the format offers a platform that shows how design from Europe can drive social change and act as a catalyst for innovation.

DESIGN POOL Design Market
27 & 28 April | Behrensbau

At the market, visitors can purchase a wide range of small series, special editions and new creations from the fields of interior, jewellery, industrial and fashion design from the designers. Special attention is paid to regenerative, sustainable and digital design.


On 2 and 3 May, designers and studios will present their work in their own spaces and provide an opportunity to exchange ideas.
