Design Week Lithuania is an annual event dedicated to the synthesis of insightful solutions, original ideas and professional performance, while highlighting the value of good design. All the latest artwork, concepts and products are welcome to join the festival in various forms. In the last decade Design Week Lithuania has established itself as the biggest design event of the country.
In 2018, the festival will take place for the 13th time, from 7 - 13 May 2018, in six cities in Lithuania – Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipėda, Šiauliai, Telšiai and Anykščiai.
During the seven-day festival, visitors will have a chance to explore various exhibitions, discover pop-up design showcases in the windows of oldtown shops and cafes, participate in workshops and discussions as well as visit showrooms and learn about latest trends.
Traditionally, national design prize GOOD DESIGN awards ceremony will open the festival in Vilnius. A special exhibition of the winner's works will be installed in Martynas Mažvydas, the National Library of Lithuania.
The theme of this year is spaces. Thus we invite participants of the festival to bring in some fresh approach to various spaces that surround us, to analyse how they relate to and impact our daily life. To move outside the comfort zone.
The festival's followers picked mustard yellow as the official colour in a Facebook competition.
