Adopting the theme Design Relations, the BIO 23 exhibition will highlight fresh ideas and explore how design relates to the social, the sustainable, and the cultural, while displaying crossovers between culture and commerce, crafts and industry. Curators will select the works to be exhibited from the entries received. The BIO 23 exhibition will be held from 27 September to 11 November 2012 at the Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The Biennial of Design is one of the few major international design exhibitions with a tradition of more than 48 years that presents a carefully chosen selection of contemporary trends in international design. From the first biennial in 1964 to today, BIO has presented 22 exhibitions that survey the best in international design.
