Design City LX Festival 2018

We are in love with art and design. If you are too, the next couple of weeks will feed the souls and senses of all of us with quite some inspiration. For the 5th time already Luxembourg is celebrating creativity and craftsmanship on a large scale.

Every two years the local design industry is in the focus for several weeks with a bunch of events, exhibitions and interesting cooperations. The theme „Me craft – You industry – We design“ forms the headline for this year’s edition of the Design City LX Festival that will be held from 19 October through 18 November. 

The City of Luxembourg and Mudam, the Museum of Modern Art, put together a diverse agenda with the support of local artists, designers and partners. Collaborations like the one with Wallpaper, a leading design magazine and company, who teamed up with Mudam to „pop up“ their famous Wallpaperstore for four weeks, bring international vibes to the Grand Duchy. After Milan, Venice, Copenhagen and other design and art metropolises, the marketplace for refined design will reveal well-selected pieces of the Wallpaper online store assortment inside the museum. We are sure that not only their loyal fans and followers based in our country will be inspired.

An interesting approach to introduce designers to a broader audience and to support their business in a more commercial yet adequate environment is the initiative „Adopt a Designer“. On Saturday and Sunday (21 October 2018) designers of all disciplines – such as fashion, furniture, graphic etc. – are moving into mainly fashion and interior boutiques in town to display some of their work. All designers will be present too and certainly happy to talk about their creations and answer questions. It’s a great chance to upgrade the shopping tour with some inspirational, educational elements.

To name but a few of the more than 20 teams in total: The Boutique M. Weydert „adopted“ Studio delle Alpi, a design duo from Luxembourg (Anne Kieffer) and Belgium (Arnaud Mouriamé) both working and living between the Grand Duchy and Milan, designing kids toys and furniture. Kritzel Fabrik Jacques Schneider, a Luxembourgish artist who recently entered the fashion world too with his own fashion line, is guest at C&A, couturier and artisan Ezri Kahn will be at La Maroquinerie du Passage. 

These highlighted events are flanked by many more features such as open door events of local architecture, art and design studios, creative communities like „Bamhaus“ in Beggen or the fashion design studio of Vol(t)age in the Gare district. Also parties are part of Design City LX Festival: The bar and club „Gudde Wëllen“ in Luxembourg’s Old Town is hosting the official Opening Party on 20 October as well as the Closing Party on 17 November.
