It’s the weekend and my feet are once again taking me somewhere else, somewhere new. Decorex is finally over (in fact, I recommend you read about my experience at London Design Week) and you would not believe where I am headed to next. I am only going to give you a small hint: it’s the place to be if you’re a lover of minimalist perfection… Yes – you guessed right: Design Matters, for Copenhagen Design Week.
About Design Matters
While part of Copenhagen Design Week, Design Matters only lasts two days, meant to be spent ‘exploring digital design – now and in the future’. Or at least this is what their website states. Honestly, I believe that even a lifetime would not be enough for such exploration (yes, my love for Design is that vast), but– you know me – I am obviously going to make the most of it and of its inspiring guests, talks and workshops. All while attempting to experience the city host of Copenhagen Design Week as much as possible… But about that I am going to talk more in the next My Monday Exclusive, and I am not going to spoil it for you here.

What to look forward to at Design Matters
Until the event, I will be particularly looking forward to the Design Salon, appointed to host interviews and discussions with interesting and inspiring speakers such as The outline, Dalton Maag and TeYosh, whom we will have the chance to ask questions to, in an open and relaxed environment – in a typically Scandi way. Here are some pictures of the speakers from the Design Matters website.
But obviously other enthusiastic Designers are going to be at Design Matters and Copenhagen Design Week too, such as Alex Bronkie from Netflix and none other than Ingrid Haug herself, UX Designer and co-founder of Design Matters. Ingrid will be introducing the themes for this 4th edition, namely: Design for Change (yes – because as Design Matters’ website states: “Change is our only constant”), Be a Design Rebel (I already know I’m going to love it) and Immersive Worlds & Mixed Realities. But the main point of her talk and Copenhagen Design Week in general – and Design Matters more in particular – is another: to talk and discuss the emerging and changing role of a Designer in relation to these movements – now and in the future.
