EN/ Design weekend Bratislava

The event with the well known name all around the world Dizajn vikend (Design weekend) took the place in Bratislava last week(end). This 3rd year was situated in Pisztory Palace (Lenin’s Museum in the past). Palace showed a very nice selection of works by slovak designers and designers from abroad. There was also place for type design among other design categories.

The corporate identity concept was based on showcase of slovak typefaces of the young generation. Visitors could compare the typefaces in the exhibition space and on propagation materials as well. Below are some type-pictures from the exhibition.

EN/ TypoBox (TypoKabinet)

A box? Black box? Wooden letters on the top?

Well yes! Type design exhibition in a very interesting form!

There is an exhibition of most recent typeface design from Slovakia going on right now! You can open any drawer on the box you like and explore the selected typeface. Now exhibited in “Dom Umenia” in Bratislava, but TypoKabinet will probably travel to surrounding countries soon!

TypoKabinet is part of the exhibition 20 years of Slovak Design Centre and the idea to show typefaces in this box was made by Palo Bálik.
