If you’re interested in design, eco fashion, sustainable materials, recycling, innovative architecture, and overall top-notch creativity, you should pop down to El Matadero for the last two weeks of the #BID16 V Bienal Iberoamericana de Diseño exhibition.
The exhibition showcases 470 of the most innovative, creative and inspiring pieces of design from the Ibero-American world, and about 1/3 of the works are sustainably focused.
This makes for awe-inspiring reading and exploring if you are into this topic.
The exhibition covers every kind of design known to man, in no particular order, meaning that you can be reading about sustainable minimalist furniture and beautiful glass necklaces in one moment, and pondering emergency pop-up housing for refugee camps in the next.
It only makes one think about the choices we make on a daily basis- how we buy, where we live and what we eat. It shows that there are some incredible new ways of doing things out there, you just have to put in a little effort to find them.
I took photographs of all the initiatives that inspired me and I’m going to investigate whether I can purchase their products next time I need to buy something, you could do the same!
I’ve added some of my favourite ideas below but I’ll leave the rest of the exploring up to you:
