Design Act 2008
Design Act 2008 Each year, Moscow’s Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art gathers together design ideas from all corners of the world for a three-day forum called Design Act. This year, the festival had two components: Design Market, where items were exhibited for sale, and Design Forum, a creative meeting for professionals and young enthusiasts. In addition, each year the festival sponsors a contest that serves as a springboard for young designers embarking on careers in the field. The culmination of the event was the Design Party, attended by celebrities of the international design world. In the end, Design Act 2008 attracted more than 50 design firms from Russia and abroad and about 25,000 visitors, a record for the event.
