From idea to object in one night...
If you like Open Design City, you will love this event:
The horn blows and a group of designers throw back a stiff drink before
plunging into work. They are producing a laser-cut object... a design
that will hit the shelves in under a week. They have 4 hours to
accomplish this outrageous task, but amongst the designers are some of
the most talented people in the design and architecture world. Over the
course of one night, they smash out a design as you party around them.
At the end of the night, you decide who gets the biggest prize and the
pieces are produced in front of you... on-the-spot.
Welcome to DesignSmash.

... so really, what is DesignSmash?
is a company for designers, producers and all-round smart people who
support ‘creative commons’ and the freedom of creative collaboration.

inspired than others. When you design for us, we help you get the most
out of your time, so that the potential of an idea becomes apparent

around the world. This gives us the opportunity to share our files
across locations so that each group of designers gets to see the work
and techniques of those in other countries.
