The San Francisco Design Week annually attracts around 60,000 visitors from all over the world, as the first global virtual design festival in 2020. The online event will be held June 15-25, in celebration of the 14th edition with the theme of Intentional Distortions.
With the challenges due to the pandemic, this is the opportunity to unite in a time of uncertainty to re-imagine how we gather, interact, engage and celebrate design. Thousands of online attendees will join in the digital programming, share virtual experiences in a live streaming studio in an interactive festival of design. The webinars in response to this new global reality will help to re-imagine how design can solve the problems facing society.
San Francisco Design Festival 2020 is an opportunity to explore the diverse design talents, influence and developments of the city, ranging from technology inventions to culture-changing products, human-centred design, emerging fashion to international architecture. From household goods that you use in your home and vehicle to tech that you wear or bring in your pocket, San Francisco is a hub of innovation like no other. SF Design Week 2020 will hold discussions, debates to explore, celebrate and exhibit the broad influence that San Francisco has on the world of design and beyond.
