Bergen is a city of many exciting festivals, including the Bergen Design Festival which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this November. It started life in 2010 as the Raff Design Week and, so far, is the only one of its kind in Norway.
The festival aims to show how design can be not only useful and great looking, but also highly innovative and sustainable. Local businesses and designers are encouraged to join in with the cornucopia of seminar lunches, creative workshops, exhibitions, inspiring talks, showroom tours and a range of other design-themed festivities.
So, whether you’re a design professional yourself or just a curious and creative soul, Bergen is the place to get inspired by both great Norwegian and international design. Check the website for full details of this year’s programme.
