UK/Croatia Extra/ordinary Design Exhibition Opens In London

Products created in design workshops held in the Croatian cities of Zagreb and Osijek are currently being displayed at the British Council Gallery in London.

The UK/Croatia Extra/ordinary Design Exhibition will take place between 7-27 January 2013 and is the first event to kick off the “Welcome Croatia” Festival in the UK organised by the British-Croatian Society and Croatia’s Ministry of Culture.

The Zagreb and Osijek workshops saw teams of designers and employees, many from socially marginalised groups, make a diverse range of products from ceramic lamps, metal plant containers, painted stools, to textiles, toys, laser cut puzzles and even a signature formal clothing collection. The exhibition is the result of a partnership developed by the British Council Croatia between the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, Royal College of Art, The Croatian Designers Association and the School of Design, University of Zagreb.
