THE PROJECT

Design City Luxembourg “Edition 0″ by Mudam is a new event in Luxembourg and the Greater Region. Organised by Mudam Luxembourg in collaboration with the City of Luxembourg, this project aims to explore the influence of design on urban spaces and daily life through a series of events and manifestations around the city.

Edition 0 sets the basis for creating awareness of design issues in the development of the city, the aim is to install, in a long term manner, this applied art as a philosophy of living, in which the professionals (creators, editors) may translate the needs of citizens and act in favour of their quality of life.

The programme of Design City Luxembourg offers an open-air circuit with projections, conferences, a workshop, a flea market and a creators’ market. Certain “off” events are equally presented in places which promote design.

The inauguration of the show is on Friday 23 March 2010 at 6pm at the Aldringen Centre (underground level), where the public can see the installation by 3RS (a collective of architects from Strasbourg, France) produced specifically for the underpass area. Along with the installation, on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 April 2010 there will be a design flea market, Designmart, open from 10am.

The installation by 3RS Ar(t)chitectures at the Aldringen Centre is part of the Outdoor Design circuit which features urban furniture by various designers (including Philippe Starck, Ross Lovegrove, Sebastien Wierinck, Lucile Soufflet, Peter Newman, Michael Bihain & Cédric Callewaert) along a pedestrian circuit in the city centre from 23 April to 6 June 2010.

The Outdoor Design circuit also includes the nocturnal projection of the video Sweepers Clock by Dutch designer Maarten Baas on the facade of the Musée national d’histoire et d’art. This video is part of the Real Time series which treats the perception of time and can be seen in its entirety at Mudam.

Another “must see” – at Mudam, on 19 May 2010 at 6.30pm, is the film Designers’ Universe – a private visit in their own world, directed by Benjamin Loyauté and Marie Farman, which presents an intimate submersion into the world of several designers. The screening will be followed by a Pecha Kucha Night at 9.30pm at Exit 07 / Carré Rotondes.

Design City Luxembourg presents a programme of conferences on the diversity and methodology of designers’ work. They are jointly presented by Mudam, Design Friends, the Chamber of Commerce and the City of Luxembourg. Mudam Luxembourg Press Release Page.
