The presented products combine creativity with a business vision. We’ve highlighted stories that express functionality, a passion for life and nature, innovative ways of using local materials and new production methods based on regional craftsmanship and advanced sustainable production technologies.
The Future of Living will showcase our designs in 25 locations and events across the world that celebrate design and creative economy, the central theme marking this year in Slovenia. Its modular design allows it to travel across the globe, to South America (Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina), Europe (Germany, Spain, France, Netherlands), the Balkans (Kosovo, Albania, Bulgaria, Serbia, North Macedonia), the Middle East (Israel, Palestine, Egypt) and North America (USA). Its extended version embarked on its journey in Vienna and is now touring design weeks from Berlin, to Zagreb, Milan, Budapest and London.
Developed in cooperation between the Centre for Creativity/MAO, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Culture, the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia and the local Slovenian Embassys. The exhibition is a promotional event organised in the framework of the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
Future of Living
The products showcased by the exhibition forecast the future of living, in which raw materials are no longer available in abundance, production methods and human resources need to be rationalised, and products are adapted to a new generation of users who want customised solutions. These come with innovative, technologically advanced production processes that producers and designers combine with their love of life and nature.
