Some of our favorites include David Hanauer's smart take on the 'living structure', Heike Buchfelder's 'pluma cubic', made of illuminated goose and rooster feathers, and Rakso Naibaf's 'parapluie table', a Magritte-influenced, absurdist play on fragility and expectation.

After a bit of a radio silence, we're back to bring you a subject near and dear to our hearts: the DMY, which kicks off today just a quick U-Bahn ride from the Design Hotels™ headquarters. Germany's largest festival for contemporary product design, DMY International Design Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, taking place from June 6-10 in the hangars of the bullet-pocked former airport Tempelhof. The works of over 700 designers and brands are on show, including serial products, limited editions and prototypes - with special attention paid to process and multidisciplinary dialogue.

Some of our favorites this year include David Hanauer's smart take on the 'living structure', Heike Buchfelder's 'pluma cubic', made of illuminated goose and rooster feathers, and Rakso Naibaf's 'parapluie table', a Magritte-influenced, absurdist play on fragility and expectation.

The showcases will be supplemented by a versatile program of symposia, designer talks, workshops and events with an eye toward the future of design. New on this year's agenda: the DMY will host the official German Design Award Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland for the first time. Considered the country’s most prestigious design award, the prize has been awarded by the Ministry of Economics and Technology since 1969.
