Valencia Disseny Week

 

For the fouth year running, the Designers’ Association of the Valencia Region (ADCV) is promoting Valencia Disseny Week (VDW), a major event packed with designrelated activities that will be held in Valencia from 18 to 22 September 2012, coinciding with the Feria Hábitat Valencia trade fair. The design week aims to become a beacon for all the design-based events that are hosted concurrently in Valencia, in order to promote design culture to a wide range of target audiences while simultaneously supporting all those involved. During the week, Valencia will become one of the leading international capitals for design and a national benchmark. The design week will encompass almost one hundred activities including exhibitions, showrooms, presentations, inaugurations, conferences, talks, workshops and much more, with a view to promoting Valencian design, as well as welcoming national and international design, and conveying that design is an effective tool for industrial improvement and for the economic sustainability of the business network. This year’s activities will be structured around different categories: Routes, City, Big and Fair.
VDW Routes establish two circuits in two areas of Valencia (Ruzafa and City Centre). Each area will officially open activities on alternate days of the week to ensure greater accessibility and to encourage the influx of visitors.
CITY CENTRE AREA: Wednesday, 19 September
RUZAFA AREA: Thursday, 20 September

Another of the new features of this edition is VDW City. The idea is to include the shopkeepers on the city center in the project, inviting the multitude of visitors to the city to experience their products and allowing a collective that uses design on a daily basis to share the city's know-how with them. VDW Big. This new category includes events that have a higher exposure level. VDW Big activities are those that by their size, either by the place for its production or the company that organizes them, cannot be framed on VDW Routes. VDW Fair. The Valencia Disseny Week (VDW) project, which was created by the ADCV, has been a success thanks to the fact that it runs in parallel to Feria Hábitat Valencia. By launching this project, the Designers’ Association has made it possible to increase design services in Valencia meaning that the Trade Fair is similarly reinforced. The ADCV will be visible in Feria Hábitat Valencia thanks to its stand and will be actively participating in the trade fair with cultural contents created for enriching the range of activities, attract a wider audience, boost activities and stimulate all the sectors involved. Valencia Disseny Week is organised by the Designers’ Association of the Valencia Region (ADCV), a non-profit organisation that was founded in 1985 by industrial and graphic designers. It serves the professional interests of its members, promotes design from a cultural, corporate and social perspective, creates strong ties between companies and designers, and promotes national and international networking with the design world. Its organisational structure includes a Board of Directors consisting of the members, a manager and a coordinator. It currently comprises 281 members who are mostly professional designers in the fields of graphics and product design, with a smaller proportion of contributors and industry related companies. The companies that are ADCV members are Andreu World, Barreira, Capdell, Universidad Cardenal Herrera CEU, Diazotec, ESAT, La Imprenta, Instituto Superior de Enseñanzas Artísticas de la Comunidad Valenciana, Luzifer Lamps, Fernando Gil, José de las Heras, Gandía Blasco, Lladró, Punt, ITC/AICE, Simbols, Koo International, Departamento de Pintura de la UPV, Grafitti Rótulos, Vinyl Decor, Guarro Casas, Gráficas Vernetta, Inclass, Vondom and Poma Reineta.

Shroom

 

Shroom is an outdoor light fixture and furniture series with an unique detection system that reacts to movement. “We wanted to create a lighting adapted to the life and needs in Nordic cities, close to nature and with long dark nights during the winter, say the designers.” The light dims to a 10 % light strength, if nobody is in its proximity and when someone passes by, Shroom smoothly brightens to full luminosity, lighting up the path. This is both energy-saving and avoiding light pollution.

Manufacturer: SaintLuc (France)
Material: Linen composite, Aluminium, Painted steel, LED, PMMA

IWA collection

 

The word IWA means ‘stone’ in Japanese. The collection’s central tenet is “the essence of a piece of art originating from carved stone”. Miguel Ángel Buonarotti, a famous sculptor, believed that each marble block he worked on had a soul, a latent artwork that he tried to recover. His sculptures, he said, were always there; he only had to remove small stone fragments to bring its soul back.

Designer: Jorge Goval (Spain)
Manufacturer: Fanstudio (Spain)
Material: Coated Plyurethane Foam
Colours: any RAL, PANTONE or NCS color
