San Francisco Design Week will take place on June 15th-25th, 2020 as the worlds first city and region to announce transitioning to an entirely Virtual Design Week. These are challenging times; designers are rising to the challenge; after all, this is the birthplace of the future.
With the challenges we all face due to the pandemic, this is an opportunity to come together to re-imagine how we gather, interact, engage and celebrate design in a time of uncertainty. Join thousands of attendees connecting online for the virtual experience, digital programming, live-streamed studio crawls for an immersive design festival. The Design Week webinars help to respond to this new global reality and re-imagine how design can solve the problems society faces in these uncertain times.
The theme at SF Design Week is Intentional Distortions, now more relevant than ever, invites you to participate by contributing content by rethinking our approach to design as a solution.
From tech inventions to culture changing products, human-centred design, emerging fashion to international architecture, San Francisco Design Week is an opportunity to experience the region’s unique design talents, impact and innovations. From household products you use in your home and car to tech you wear or carry in your pocket, San Francisco is a hub of innovation like no other. We’ll discuss, debate, explore, celebrate and showcase San Francisco’s broad influence on the design world and beyond.
San Francisco Design Week 2020 spans the entire Bay Area from Silicon Valley, Oakland to the city of San Francisco. With more than 60 studio tours and 300 events throughout the week featuring world-renowned designers, entrepreneurs and innovative thought leaders.
