DesignPhiladelphia is in its 5th year this year and I’m so excited to be able to attend many events and exhibitions. This city-wide cultural event spotlights all things design from architecture to interior design, fashion to product design, textile to graphic design. It’s chock full of exhibitions, workshops, studio tours, lectures, special events and product roll-outs that showcase why Philadelphia is a city rich and full of design, inspiration, and the arts.

From MIO to DWR, from Artemide to Minima, come join us in celebrating Philadelphia’s present (and maybe experience a little of its history).

This year the week-long event runs from October 7-13, 2009. You can check out the program calendar right here. Design Milk is a proud Partner sponsor of this year’s event.
