For the third consecutive year, Mirko Tattarini with Lagos Design Studios curates the art direction of Creative Space Serbia, a design platform promoted by Siepa to highlight the new generation of its local designers. The theme of the 2013 edition is “Yurope – The 3rd domestic landscape”: the starting point for reflection is memory and the cultural baggage which Serbia, an official EU candidate, carries and is able to bring for the broader European identity. Based on this concept, each designer devised his or her own idea of a “memory box” in the creation of a new generation of storage units, where both space and contents, whether real or imaginary, play a primary role, redefines forms and uses.
Lagos is the art director of the third edition of Geniogioco, the creativity festival for kids and their families that takes place in Tuscany in the hometown of Leonardo da Vinci.
