Design District, Vukovar, 3. - 5. 5. 2018.
Exhibition without electricity
The event called “Design district – Exhibition without electricity” is held in the Workers’ Home in Vukovar, in cooperation with the city of Vukovar, organized by Croatian Interiors, which continues the promotion of Croatian furniture.
The three mentioned days are at the same time the days when the “All together Croatian NAJ” Festival is held and the days of the city of Vukovar. Croatian furniture manufacturers, about twenty of them, make their contribution to the festivities of the city, and speak affirmatively and in a completely different context from Vukovar: “without electricity”, togetherness and top quality products, they send a message about the strong Croatian furniture industry. In addition to furniture from Croatian factories, the exhibition will also feature works by students of the Drvodjel Technical School, which is also one of the exhibitors.
As part of the event, the educational project “Bernardo Bernardi, Croatian icon of architecture and design” is being held, and Croatian furniture makers show that they are extremely sensitive by organizing a humanitarian campaign to donate furniture to kindergartens and the Vukovarski Leptirići association for children with special needs.
The city of Vukovar selflessly ceded the particularly attractive space of the Workers’ Home for the holding of the Exhibition. This space, with its symbolism, as well as the name of the exhibition itself, will confirm that there are no obstacles if you really want something.
This is another opportunity for Croatian furniture manufacturers to show that, although they are few and almost invisible in the Croatian economy, they exist and want to share their joy of creating new values in the furniture industry and thereby spread optimism through concrete projects.
