With this year's focus "Higher Purpose" ideas on a better future are on demand and how we can make it happen

Alexandra Klatt's team is currently curating the BNDNWK from 12 to 22 May 2022 on the subject of "Higher Purpose" all over Berlin. Designers, artists, studios, cultural institutions, universities and companies can apply to participate until 18 March 2022.

The great challenge of our time is to develop concepts that reduce our consumption – and with it our production, use of resources, and pollution – while improving our quality of life in a sustainable way. Experimental projects and concepts that combine research, industry, and economy with various aspects of design are welcome to apply at Berlin Design Week

As an event partner iF Design is looking forward to meeting you at several occasions during the week - with the iF DESIGN AWARD NIGHT 2022 as a satellite event on 16 May 2022 in Friedrichstadt-Palast!

iF and BNDNWK - our Goals:
Strengthening Berlin as THE design capital in Germany and Europe - especially after challenging pandemic developments.

  • Creating one of the most important design stages worldwide!

  • Helping hidden design champions to become world leaders of design!

  • Discussing meaningful social topics and the role of design!

  • Celebrating innovation in all its forms, meeting design enthusiasts from around the world!
