Design | Tallinn Music Week


Design Tour

For the first time, Estonian Design Center invited TMW visitors to a curated design tour around the Telliskivi Creative City.

Take a look what happened in the TMW 2019 Design programme:

The tour will focus on introducing Creative City-based designers who are running their studios with circular economy principles in mind. We will visit the studios of Reet Aus, Stella Soomlais and Karl Annus. They will share their thoughts on why sustainability is a major topic and why both designers and consumers should set their eyes on it.

The design tour will be in English and led by Piret Mägi, design promoter, teacher and mentor.
