This week, several of Lithuania's cities are being taken over by Design Week, which will mainly be in evidence in design and interior salons/galleries. The full program is listed below, but we've chosen to highlight the following: “Titanikas”, the exhibition of works by students of the Department of Design at the Vilnius Academy of Art, on view in the academy's exhibition hall (Maironio g., May 3, 8 and 9); “Extremism”, an exhibition of works by the British designer Tom Dixon (salon “Simetria”, Lukšio g. 32, “Domus galerija”, May 9, 10.00–19.00); and the exhibition of works by the 2012 winners of the prestigious, German-founded “Red Dot” award (salon “Skandinaviški interjerai”, Lukšio g. 32, “Domus galerija”, May 11, 14.00). In Kaunas, take a look at classic pieces of Scandinavian design, as well as examples of current works (salon “Skandinaviški interjerai”, Savanorių pr. 166, May 10, from 19.00). And don't miss the announcement of the winners of the local “Good Design Awards”, May 15 at the Vilnius Museum of Energy and Technology. Lastly, if you've gone all the way to Vilnius, be sure to stop by the local affiliate of the Latvian store “Nakts mēbeles”, where on May 9, at 18.00 o'clock, the company will be presenting its collection for 2012 (Lukšio g. 32, “Domus galerija”).
