Common Sense and Sensibility Arrives on Hvar
Who needs IKEA? A very exciting exhibition is about to open in Hvar Town, the third and final stop for Common Sense and Sensibility, an innovative exhibition highlighting the very best of modern Croatian design.
The exhibition, which will be hosted in one of Hvar's most historic buildings, the City Loggia just off the main square below Hotel Palace, opens on July 21 at 21:00, and the curator of the exhibition, Tatjana Bartaković, is excited to be on Hvar:
"The town of Hvar is this year ranked among the top five tourist destinations in the world, and had numerous guests from northern Europe for years now - countries with more than 50 years of design tradition. It was for this reason Hvar is an excellent arena to acquaint foreign tourists with Croatian design.
"In addition to this, Croatian design rarely has the chance to move out of Zagreb, and we are striving to decentralise it, so it becomes more tangible for more of Croatia's citizens."
Croatian brands appearing in the exhibition include: Kvadra Design, Element, OBLO, Somewhere City, Blablab, Design Hotel Lone, Design Hostel Goli&Bosi, Data by Despot, Grupa Products, BOYA, Little Horse and Baby Beuys, Manufakturist, Ana Tevšić and Filip Gordon Frank.
