Madrid Design Festival 2020

For the third year in a row, IED Madrid is the official educational institution of the Madrid Design Festival. As a Centre for Higher Education in Design, it is a real honour for IED to the able to be part of one of the most important events in the design sector in Spain since the first edition of the festival.

The functionality of design, its capacity to transform, its social and pedagogical dimension, new materials, sustainability and responsible consumption will be some of the key themes of the activities of the third edition of the Madrid Design Festival. Particularly noteworthy in the IED programme for this year is the role of the REC (Research Education Center), the school’s research center that is in constant contact with the industry, which proposes IED Madrid design students as agents for change in a new social and business reality.

The spaces of IED Madrid will become a meeting point that will bring new perspectives to design lovers and which will invite students and the general public, not only those in the know, to discover the infinite possibilities of a professional practice that is transforming the world we live in. “It is an uncertain time for design, but in its complexity, it is inspiring and essential for creating a better world,” explains Giusi Lara, director of IED Madrid.
