From 6 to 8 October Ķīpsala will host the Riga international design trade fair Design Isle 2017, which will showcase high-quality and original design pieces by Baltic companies, professionals and students. You will have a chance to see the latest arrivals, meet the designers, draw inspiration and purchase something to freshen up your style or home with.
Design Isle 2017 will offer furniture, light fixtures, clothing and accessories, lifestyle products and other original design products by Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian companies. Over the three days, you will have a chance to meet and consult with designers of different specialisations.
Students of Latvian design schools and universities will surprise the audience with fresh ideas and extraordinary solutions in their diploma works and creative projects. Whereas, for those who are still planning on studying design, the trade fair will be the right place to learn about educational institutions, compare them and choose the most suitable one.
The Best of the Best
As per tradition, the trade fair will showcase Latvian design pieces selected by a professional panel of judges. The participants of the Annual Design Award 2017 of the Latvian Designers’ Association – both professionals and students of schools and universities – will surprise you with original ideas. This year, works by professionals are accepted in three categories: interior design (environmental design category), furniture design (object design category) and trademark or logo design (communication design category). At the trade fair, you will see the best works in the furniture design category, and everyone will have a chance to chat with the authors about their works.
Baltic Design Fair
For the second time, Design Isle will feature the Baltic Design Fair, where talented designers will be selling original and contemporary design products: interior objects, clothing, accessories, lifestyle products and much more. AWEI fashion, SOFIA LARK RIGA, Ritico, Lazuri, ElAli … These are only some of the brands that will be offering their creative works for attractive prices.
The Future Professions of Design seminar will be useful both for current and aspiring designers. More information on this coming soon. Follow the news on the website www.designisle.lv!
