The largest design event in Croatia
Every year in Croatia, for a week, design is celebrated throughout Croatia’s capital Zagreb, at dozens of locations with numerous events. This design festival brings many exhibitions, lectures, panels, workshops, fashion shows, movie screenings and, of course, parties. Zagreb Design Week presents all fields of design — from furniture and fashion through digital and graphic design to food and automotive design. Every year a different theme is in focus, and another country is in the centre. One of the festival highlights is ZGDW Award, an international design award, with a finalists exhibition and prize–giving ceremony. Croatia’s only design festival started in 2014. Before COVID–19 pandemic, ZGDW was gathering over 200 participants and attracting over 25.000 visitors every year.
