Romanian Design Week, the biggest national event aiming to promote the Romanian design which reached its 5th and anniversary edition, is presented, this year, by The Institute and ING Bank between May 20-29. Same as every year, Romanian Design Week will include in its program the central exhibition organized by The Institute and a circuit of events and spaces aimed to promote the design with all of its disciplines among big public and professionals.
Bucharest will turn into the capital of design between May 20-28, as over 30 events design-related are scheduled to take place in the mentioned period. An important activity center will be the Creative Neighborhood, the most recent project from The Institute and the place that will host more than half of the events.
Each year we are delighted by the large number of partners and friends who want to be part of RDW and to bring it value and content. We are thanking them for supporting us in promoting the Romanian design. Another interesting aspect is that these events take place in the Creative Neighborhood, as this shows us that the premises that we’ve started from are correct
