Istanbul Design Week

Launched in 2005, Istanbul Design Week (IDW) provides a unique design experience to the city, bringing local and international designers, students and business world together through a series of exhibitions, conferences, street events and workshops. IDW takes place around a multi-dimensional framework, focusing on the main theme “City and Design”. Symbiotic and two-way relationship between city and design has inspired this year’s Design Week. Istanbul with its diverse and chaotic harmony made our efforts useful enough to formulate an exceptional program including participants from various disciplines of design while merging different conceptual works.

National and international exhibitions will be presented in Tepebaşı-Beyoğlu, a new location for IDW but one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city will serve as the main hub of IDW’s 2015 programme. IDW 2015 will also include seminars and panels on a variety of titles, 6 workshops with the participation of influential designers.
