From Pure Talents Contest to Future Kitchen: the news of the 2019 edition


Among the key players of the next edition are the section "Pure" thatshowcases, like every year, design in its various forms, and Pure Talents Contest, a competition for design students who, for the first time this year, will set up a special exhibition on the world of kitchen furniture in the area of LivingKitchen.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, the exhibition “100 years bauhaus - work in progress" is absolutely unmissable, as well as the two-day talks session. The 8th edition of Das Haus, the setup of an ideal home by Truly Trulystudio in Rotterdam, is also worth mentioning.
