Celebrating is man’s favourite pastime, because the MCBW, which took place for the eighth time, began with a party based on the motto ‚Less business, more amore‘. The Creative Night, generously designed by MUCBOOK, was the starting signal for the 9-day Designwalk with over 200 events. We were particularly impressed by the performances of the ‚animago award‘ and the contributions of the design cinema, especially those to the Bauhaus anniversary. In addition, we sprinted through numerous events such as the design talk „Progressive Luxury meets Creative Excellence“ with the designer Patricia Urquiola and the chief designer of the BMW Group, Adrian van Hooydonk or visited the design agency User Interface Design, where we created our own small robot with artificial intelligence. It was a very run-intensive event because we had to take up as much as possible of the four main topics creation and innovation, icons of design, German premieres and a look into the future.
