Studio Komplekt continues its series of reviews of the current state of Bulgarian design, which has become a traditional annual practice since the first edition of the festival. The group show brings together some of the notable manifestations of the discipline through projects in various fields of design (graphic, motion, product, social, interior design, printing, jewelry, fashion and more).
The series started in 2018 as the main content of the MELBA design festival under the name Review of Bulgarian Design. The motivation behind the selection of Studio Komplekt is to acquaint the audience with the skillful and valuable applications of design from local practitioners. The richness of interpretations is united by a strong and memorable visual language, high quality and uncompromising aesthetics, all of which cultivate a sense of appreciation and recognition of the valuable.
In 2021 Studio Komplekt sets as a leading theme of the exhibition The Value of Design.
As with most things in life, we need to dig deeper to understand what actually triggers, moves forward, and materializes an idea. We are looking for significance in the process preceding the end and the final presentation of "consumption". Behind the collective image of the finished product lies a long way of research, experimentations, failures, meetings, communication, hesitation, rejection, reworking, perseverance, patience, testing the skill limit... Each visitor will be able to better understand how designers make decisions and what determines their specific choice. Again, we deliberately invite representatives of different design disciplines and at a different stage of their development.
Creation is a mysterious process that requires the coordination of many elements. Revealing at least some of them, the exhibition aims to show the high value that good design carries and adds to our daily lives.
