XVII Tallinn Design Festival from 19 to 25 September 2022

The 17th Tallinn Design Festival will take place from 19 to 25 September 2022, focusing on issues related to sustainability and green design. Discussions on methods to readjust the impact of human activities on the environment in an era fixed on economic success, examples of circular design from different countries, enlightening stories told by professionals and workshops on essential recycling will all be featured over the course of the festival.

The center of the festival is situated in the Baltic Manufactory, a Tsarist industrial quarter, which most of the time is inaccessible. One goal of the festival is to revive spaces of architectural and historical value through culture. Factory’s infinitely columned halls will be filled with several local and international exhibitions, such as "3R - Reduce, Recycle, Reuse" presented by the Italian Embassy; design students' theses on the environment via the UK’s ArtsThread platform; the display of design and architecture schools, which reflects the level of Estonian professional education and the international competition-exhibition of the Haapsalu Graphic Design Festival "Juri Lotman 100. Unpredictability". And let’s not forget the best work displays of the Estonian Design Awards and the BRUNO Product Design award, plus the typography conference Kirjak!
