European Design Stories represents an international curatorial project documenting stories in works by selected original creators. It collects intimate moments in creative processes, ways of thinking, or working and living environments that best capture the narratives of final things.

It is not limited by any particular design field. No matter if it is an individual designer, studio, brand or craftsman. The project seeks various approaches in contemporary design that respond to current issues in particular countries or in the society in general nowadays. Thus its aim is to present design as a remarkable dynamic mover and an instrument, which enhances our lives.

The European Design Stories creative team makes journeys across various European countries and collects authentic material and insights in form of photographs, texts and videos. Comprehensive outcomes are continuously published on the project’s website,  exhibitions, screenings and lectures are organized in various European countries. An extensive 350-page that reflects current background of the design scene of the old continent has been published.
