New Baltic Design Exhibition to Debut at London Design Festival

Tactile Baltics is a new exhibition that will offer an insight into the design scenes of the three Baltic countries: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.

A part of London Design Festival 2021, Shoreditch Design Triangle, and Adorno's Collectible Design Trail, Tactile Baltics will invite people to discover the Baltics and the region's deep-rooted connection to nature. With a focus on tactility, visitors can feel the environment around them as they trace a path through the exhibition.

Tactile Baltics will run from September 18th to October 3rd and is organized and curated by NID, the Latvian Design Centre, and the Lithuanian Design Forum.

The Shoreditch-based exhibition will showcase work by established and up-and-coming designers. Eighteen contemporary design projects - six from each country - will comprise examples of tableware, furniture, lighting, textiles, and jewelry.

Installations will offer visitors the opportunity to gain an understanding of key themes related to Baltic design, including: sustainability, tradition, craftsmanship, innovation, and materials.

In a collaboration with Adorno - a curated online gallery for contemporary collectible design - Tactile Baltics will also feature a series of eighteen limited edition collectible design works, both as part of its Shoreditch exhibition and at Adorno's virtual design destination.
