Valencia Disseny Week

The Association of Designers of the Region of Valencia (ADCV) is organising Valencia Disseny Week (VDW) for the third year running, with the aim of publicising all the events being hosted in the city of Valencia. Its aim is to promote design culture to a wide range of target audiences through various activities, whilst simultaneously supporting all those involved.

The successful turnout of visitors in previous years backs the Valencian community's social and cultural interest in design. The aim of this year's event is to strengthen this trend and ensure its growth year on year. The Association of Designers of the Region of Valencia (ADCV) motivates the different parties involved in VDW to continue working and to join forces to invigorate one of the key sectors for economy, society and business competitiveness.

Valencia is a key city for a "Design Week" given its long-standing tradition and know-how in the world of design, its involvement in the business sector and its industrial potential. And of course, design is a crucial business strategy that helps companies to be competitive in the international market. The aim of VDW is to promote this idea, bringing the business and design sectors closer together.

During the design week, Valencia will become one of the leading international capitals for design, showcasing exhibitions, awards, showrooms, presentations, inaugurations, conferences, talks, workshops and more. Last year's VDW encompassed over 60 activities.

Audience, conceived by rAndom International, is an installation consisting of around 64 head-size mirror objects. Each object moves its head in a particular way to give it different characteristics of human behaviour. Some chat amongst themselves, some shy away and others confidently move to grab your attention.
