Young Balkan Designers

One of the first joint activities of the Balkan Design Network is the further development of the well established regional talent competition and travelling exhibition ‘Young Balkan Designers’, a seed project that motivated two partner organizations to join Mikser initiative in 2013 and encouraged regional cooperation in supporting young design talents.

From this year on, Balkan Design Network will offer young designers far more visibility at the relevant regional and international events, enhanced mobility of the designers themselves, possibility for further education through educational workshops and lectures, as well as intense practical training in the leading regional companies such as ‘Prostoria / Kvadra’ – the award-winning furniture manufacturer from Croatia and The Buck Company – Serbian leader in lightning manufacture and the winner of prestigious European design awards.
