SF Design week kicks off with the opening night reception on June 14th. We want to celebrate not just design itself, but the communities, people and issues that continually change the way we understand design. Join designers from around the world and treat your senses to an experience into what it means to be a designer.
We will have a live musical performance from the first woman beatboxing finalist from America's Got Talent , “Up and comer” as quoted by Refinery 29 and a one-woman vocal symphony, Butterscotch. Making it's way to the U.S. for the first time, Casa Castiglioni, an international exhibit from Milan, Italy will be featured at the Design Hub . Casa Castiglioni explores the work of one of the greatest industrial designers of the 20th century, Achille Castiglioni. The exhibit showcases nearly 60 years of the Italian designers historical objects.
LOCZIdesign and Heavy Projects have partnered to bring visitors a truly unique augmented reality exhibit: exploring the changing nature of a city that questions everything. This interactive exhibit expands the view of the city by the bay, from beatniks to technocrats, and paves the way for this year's San Francisco Design Week.
Airbnb is designing a custom experiential installation inspired by this years theme, “Question Everything”.
Stay tuned for updates of events, installations and more coming to this years opening night reception!
