Design and music festival joined forces

BRATISLAVA Design Week, the international festival of contemporary design, has seen several changes recently. It has changed the date – to beginning June, and it has acquired, as an after-party, the Wilsonic music festival.

The festival, organised between June 8 and 14, 2015, will have as its main star French designer Inga Sempé – but it will definitely have more on offer. The works of Italian cult designer Vico Magistretti will be exhibited, and his granddaughter Margherita Pellino will attend to talk about him. Part of the programme will be also a presentation of winning works of the Czech Grand Design 2014 contest.

Fluorescent shoes, shoes in the form of maps; or shoes that people can craft themselves as tailor-made - all that will be part of the One Step Further exhibition between June 8 and 14 in Laurinská 14. 

The official after-party on June 12 in Ateliér Babylon can be perceived as the culmination of BADW: the Wilsonic festival will offer UK’s Boddika, German Redshape and Grandbrothers, French duo Nôze, or Austrian Sun People (aka Simon/off); with Slovakia being represented by Kevi Anavi and Ján Šicko.

More detailed programme can be found at www.badw.sk and www.wilsonic.sk.
