Leipzig Designer’s Open

Designer’s Open @ Baumwollspinnerei, Leipzig, 28-30 October 2011

After yesterday’s book reading and before driving back to Dresden I visit the Designer’s Open design fair, now moved to Leipzig’s legendary Baumwollspinnerei.

This is my first visit to the internationally re-known location. I am fascinated by the buildings and overall atmosphere of the place but not so much of the design fair itself. Some rusty canvases draw my attention at last, and after checking out “Oxydations” have a look into the halls of rotor bikes who present half old-school historical half modern bicycle designs. “Dinner for Spinner”, a gathering of twelve works by contemporary painters, makes me smile.

Well, seems for this weekend I am not in a ‘convention/trade fair’ mood. But maybe next time…
