The Barcelona Designers’ Collective is part of an international project by Value Retail, which has editions in Fidenza Village, Milan (The Creative Spot); Bicester Village, London (British Designers’ Collective); and Kildare Village, Dublin (Só Collective).
The initiative was established by Value Retail in 2011 to create a bridge between creativity and the public. In 2017 there will be around 70 participants, compared to 62 in the last edition. The temporary boutique is dedicated to the exhibition and sale of products that incorporate art as a new creative expression.
“If I had to give an adjective for Barcelona Designers’ Collective, it would be without a doubt ‘necessary’. It puts the focus on independent design and self-publishing, which for me is where future of design is found” – Nani Marquina.
“Show, Share & Shine the Talent”
