The 2009 edition, which slogan is “European Creativity”, is focused on the start of the “professional journey” of young designers coming from the European Schools. From product to digital media, the designer seems to be a key profession to improve economy and production and to answer to the social need of innovation, usability and sustainability.
Every designer :"under 35” – such as product, graphic, exhibit, fashion designers - was invited to display his products and projects during the Roma Design + Week in Rome (Italy) from the 5th tot the 15th of December 2009.
The 31st of October was the deadline for enrolling and they were very satisfied by the large number of entries arrived up to the number of 300 from every part of Europe and moreover for the high quality of the design proposals! The exhibition is divided into 6 areas (product, furniture, exhibit, fashion, transportation and communication). They selected 30 projects from every area. And 'tea time' my shadow tea set is one of them!
