YBD Regional tour exhibition winners 2016

Balkan Design Network announced the winners of the YBD travelling exhibition touring from the selection of the first round of the competition "Young Balkan Designers 2016: New Analogue" which called for design products and scenarios that are bringing human touch back into design process and manufacturing, linking them directly to materials, crafts and techniques available in the Balkan culture. Through the competition designers explored ways in which Balkan as a society can activate the value of its own cultural assets and contribute to the global debate on dehumanization of design and production process caused by hyper-efficient models of capitalist industrial and digital production and limiting usability-based approaches to design that tend to neglect other aspects of human factor - people’s personalities, their emotional responses and ideals.
