After a spectacular start to the year in Germany, where Heimtextil, Domotex, and IMM Cologne were all held over just two weeks, it’s time to take out your diary and block out these dates so that you don’t miss any of these design events in 2020.
Maison & Object, Paris
The Parisian decoration salon turns 25 this year, reuniting some of the best companies, designers, and manufacturers. With the theme of (RE)GENERATION!, it’s looking to the future to explore the consumer habits of new generations and the impact they have on the interior design world. It will celebrate its second edition for the year in September.
Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, Stockholm
The Swedish capital brings together the best of Scandinavian design with its furniture and lighting fair. It is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2020 with an exhibition that will bring together some design classics and the debut of a new space dedicated to workplace design.
Interzum Guangzhou, China
While we wait for the next Interzum, this year we can visit the Guangzhou edition, which has become the main decorating and furniture event in Asia. This global fair network will also stretch across the ocean to celebrate Interzum Bogotá, which is directed at the Latin American market.
Get out your red pen to mark this unmissable date for lovers of design on your calendar. Attending the Salone is a must if you want to know what’s happening in the design world. But make sure you set some time aside for the ever-increasing number of events that form part of Fuorisalone, which are spread throughout the design districts of the city.
Architect@work, Barcelona and Madrid
This is an exclusive event for professionals working in architecture, interior design, and construction and one which is reproduced all over the world. This event brings together the most innovative materials and the most inspiring talks.
Interior Lifestyle, Tokyo
With a focus on lifestyle, this fair goes beyond decoration and furniture to cover other fields such as food. It is the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with Japanese art and design, which is taking over the world.
London Design Festival, London
Some other stand-out events will be held following the summer break, such as the Hábitat fair in Valencia and Cersaie in Bologna. In London, hundreds of projects from big names in design and contemporary architecture will be spread throughout the city in order to promote and celebrate creativity.
The biggest international fair for office furniture and space planning will return from October 27 to October 31. Its consistent growth is proof that we are giving more and more importance to the spaces in which we work. In 2020, it will focus on the design of flexible work spaces that can adapt to the new work culture.
Dubai Design Week, Dubai
In just five years, Dubai Design Week has become the benchmark fair in the Middle East. The team, directed by Rawan Kashkoush, spends the whole year looking for the best design in the region in order to show it to the rest of the world and encourage the exchange of ideas.
