  • 19 Noiembrie 2019

Staged every year in May, Romanian Design Week is a 10 days festival that promotes design as a pad for cultural, social and economical growth. 
By promoting interesting ideas, energy and dynamism, vibrant exhibitions and extraordinary collaborations, RDW shows that Romanian design is so much more than what you can see at a first look. Events and showcases focus on product and industrial design, furniture, graphics, fashion, architecture. 
Romanian Design Week sees itself as a festival for and of the public and our aim is to make design accessible to a broad-based public. 30.000 design aficionados visited, each year, our main exhibition and the galleries, design studios and collateral events that were part of the RDW program.
For the first 7 editions the main exhibition included, every year, over 150 projects of more than 100 designers, design and architecture studios. A board of curators selected the participants of the main exhibition, gathering under the same roof the best creative work developed by Romanian designers, artists and architects.
The festival program also includes every year satellite events, hosted by design studios, design showrooms, creative hubs, boutique stores, art galleries, all united under the appreciation for great design.  

2013-2018 // short history
The festival began as a private initiative devloped by The Institute, but from the very start it has been sustained by the generous support of our esteemed partners. We are pleased to be working together with institutions and enterprises whose approaches we identify with and value. 
We particularly wish to thank our main sponsors, but also all of the other institutional partners and promoters, which came along the way to sustain us, for their loyalty and appreciation through the years.
