The Design Center Stuttgart, which is run by the state of Baden-Württemberg, provides information and advice about professional design. As part of the promotion of trade and industry, we especially offer small and medium-sized enterprises guidance on current design topics. After all, in national and international markets, only companies that recognize and deliberately exploit the value of high-quality, functional and aesthetic design will have a real chance of survival in the medium-to-long term. In this context, product and industrial design play a key role. In addition, communication design and graphic design have a crucial effect on market success.
The Design Center Stuttgart offers companies and creative service providers the ideal platform for making contacts and networking. Our work to promote young designers collaborates very closely with the Mia Seeger Foundation, which sees design as a synthesis between business and culture. Many of our offerings are also of interest for the general public and consumers. For example, exhibitions show how good design influences and optimizes product quality.
The Design Center’s location, in Baden-Württemberg’s “Haus der Wirtschaft” in the centre of Stuttgart, is a reflection of the state’s great commitment to design affairs, and is a venue where tradition and innovation come together.
