The Design Week Zagreb

The Design Week Zagreb (#tdzg)

 This year, the Zagreb Design Week again offers a lot of content on a daily basis and will be held on more than 50 partner locations throughout the city center.  There are more than 300 designers and more than 50 programs including six exhibitions, so there will certainly be something for everyone.

For the first time in 4 years, #tdzg has a topic „ What's the problem?“- the question is trying to show you that design is much more than fashion, styling or a marketing tool.

"We believe every good design starts with the initial problem that needs to be solved, so we have chosen this topic as a platform to develop all the content of this year's program," Tina Markovic explained.

The Design Week Zagreb (#tdzg), has been held since 2014 with the aim of linking designers and businessmen and popularizing designs through design exhibitions, lectures, panels, workshops, presentations, pop-ups, and the visit of prominent world designers. Conceived as a festival featuring a variety of programs, the Design Week has been visited by more than 18,000 visitors last year, and this year's organizers expect this figure to rise to more than 20,000.

Zagreb design week is going to be held from 9th to 14th of April 2017. The central location is Lauba and right next to Lauba at the #tdzg Design Park.

So we at Lobagola B&B would like to single out few of the designers that are going to be at  #tdzg

They seek a way to make a person daily life better. Together with clients, they trie to find out what is the secret of their happiness and strives to contribute to this happiness by designing usable items, furniture, installations, interiors, and homes.



The Artisan factory emerged from the traditional woodwork shop Ćostović, which conveyed all its love towards wood and 50-year experience of wood processing into it. Artisan specializes in the manual production of high-quality furniture made from solid wood, and this insistence on manual, artisan work is what sets us apart. We acquired our first experiences by producing furniture for Dutch and British designers, and we started our own first collection in collaboration with the regional designers in 2007. Since then, our aim has been to reaffirm the philosophy that guides us with each collection, each piece of wood, with each designer’s vision and diligent craftsmen's touch.

Wood design JM

By hand making each and every piece of wood, we try to inspire new life and understand the purpose of the whole tree. Certainly, we work on customer preferences and we are open to any suggestion. We can modestly say that we can make almost anything out of a piece of wood, as evidenced by our satisfied clients all over the world. We do not set limits to our imagination and skill.
