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.

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.

A must-see for those seeking frames for glasses outside the traditional sales circuit. Its differential trait is to support independent brands with a commitment to design and quality. With this philosophy, from the 8th to 15th February, the shop presents Nina Mûr Eyewear Jewel & Eighties Collection, and from the 15th to 25th Feb. the most iconic models by Michel Henau Eyewear. Both collections will be offering up to a 30% discount.

Fragrance becomes the extension of the person. Draping the person in exclusivity, the search for excellence and offering non-mainstream scent is the purpose of the signature perfumes available at Abanuc. On the occasion of MDF, this temple to exquisite scents is lending space to Natalia Lerdo de Tejada so she can organise olfactory workshops to take us through Diptyque’s 50 years of history.
