Biennale Interieur
The Biennale Interieur gathers during one week the best of the best of design, product development and innovation. This event with a strong international presence was founded in 1967 to present contemporary design for housing to the public. Traditional patterns and lay-outs have been broken in order to create a unique event, where the cultural and commercial aspects have been merged. Year by year, its international character and the number of visitors have been growing. This year, the Biennale Interieur is celebrating its 24th edition. At this occasion, Polish design cannot be absent.
