Desigñ, the international design with Spanish accent, shown in Dublin

After a stint in 2010 at Shanghai Expo, the Desigñ - Spanish Accent in design exhibition, organized by the National Innovation Enterprise (ENISA), of Industry, Energy and Tourism Ministry, and the Cervantes Institute and curated by Ramon Ubeda will be exhibited from 21 February until 28 April at the Cervantes Institute in Dublin. The Spanish design and creativity landscape has significantly evolved since its international projection kicked off in the 80s, during the previous century. It has enriched its repertoire without complexes. It excels in all creativity disciplines and it opens up to the world with an outstanding repertoire of resources that fire up your imagination. This exhibition clearly intends to illustrate this extraordinary juncture.

What do the following have in common?: The Rolling Stones Rolled Gold dvd cover with the daily Argentinian newspaper Clarín, with the Volvo VVC and the friendly cartoon character Pocoyó? They are all designs with Spanish accent. Some examples of the items on display at “Desigñ” are the Camper Pelotas shoes, Room XX at the United Nations Headquarters at Geneva, the national campaign Incredible India and the Bangkok airport seats. It is an ensemble of unique characters, strong teams and exemplary firms that together achieve a renewed image. Its identity constitutes its diversity of styles, generations and origins since creation has no frontiers in a globalised world. The common factor that unites them is their accent —Spanish accent in design— and their unrivalled capacity to export talent.
