The Biennial of Design (BIO)

The Biennial of Design (BIO)

The Biennial of Design (BIO) in Ljubljana is an international platform for new approaches in design. BIO was founded back in 1964, making it the first design biennial in Europe. Witnessing the many shifts and changes of the last 50 years, BIO has seen design transition from its birth at the crossroads of industrialization and modernism to a discipline that permeates all layers of life and human endeavour.
Today BIO is structured as a long-term collaborative process, where teams of designers and multidisciplinary agents develop alternatives to established systems.
