Tallinn Design Festival has plenty of variety when it comes to exhibitions: examples of Mediterranean industrial design, university theses from here and abroad, graphic design, reflections on post-industrialism and experiments with innovative materials. Let's take a closer look at the exhibitions.

"CREATED IN ITALY. The attitude for the impossible"

The exhibition brings together numerous individual stories, in an attempt to outline the quality and characteristics of Italy’s multifarious production. Conspicuous among these national features are a stubborn search for perfection and a renowned spirit of invention, a constant urge to experiment and to force the limits of materials.
