30 Jan Festival OFF
¿What is Festival OFF?
Festival OFF is a platform created to give voice to the main players in Madrid’s world of design, inviting them to be part of the festival by developing interesting creations at their facilities. Among the participating commercial spaces are design galleries, shops, studios, workshops, restaurants and pop-up shops. The spaces have been invited to highlight their singularity by proposing all types of activities, which can range from exhibits of collections, exhibitions, installations, product launches, talks and routes, all centred on one of the numerous disciplines of design, including architecture, furniture, graphics, lighting, pottery, and a long etcetera.
Madrid Design Festival works to maximise the dissemination of OFF spaces via all festival channels: printed guide, official website, newsletter and social media platforms. The Festival OFF is a declaration of intentions that takes design to every corner of the city, creating a journey through some of Madrid’s spaces with the most personality that have design in their DNA.
This Spanish design gallery is one of the big flagships in artist furniture production and the distribution of limited editions by national and international designers. From the 25th January to 10th March, the gallery will present the exhibition entitled Poli-Piel by designer Jorge Penadés. The designer explores the limits of leather in different pieces with a specific utility.

Unique pieces for lovers of everything beautiful. Handcrafted fabrics made on hand looms. Employing natural fibres and vegetable dyes. An ancient craft that offers a different option. That is the philosophy at Ábbatte, with the exhibition Cuando lo artesanal es de uso cotidiano (When Handicrafts are Used Everyday), a tribute to Spanish wool in textile objects for interior design and the clothing industry.
