During four days in December we hosted the very first public presentation of the European Design Stories project. The exhibition 1. Work in Progress was held within the international festival of contemporary design in Prague – designSUPERMARKET.

In 2015, the team of European Design Stories crossed several European countries and visited workshops and studios of more than 25 designers. We travelled to Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Slovakia, Slovenia and Germany to offer you a sneak-peek behind the scenes of many successful products and projects.

We weren’t stopped by crooked roads, nor temperature records that were broken this summer in Europe. We have been bringing loads of material and insights that are currently being shaped into texts, interviews, photography essays and short films.

Through a multimedia mosaic, the exhibition 1. Work in Progress shows the backstage of our project and subjects that are being developed. Design is presented here not only as the finished products, but the powerful stories, knowledge and context behind them.
