On the occasion of the international festival Designblok, we were invited to present the project Take Away Sofia in Prague. The exhibition with 8 prototypes for new design of the Sofia souvenir is displayed in the beautiful gallery of the Czech centre until 19 November 2016. Afterwards it will return to Sofia where we are organising a series of lectures, discussions and workshops to accompany the exhibition in

This is the first stage of the project. We will put more efforts into turning the prototypes into a functioning brand, well distributed around museum shops and other locations, and gradually diversifying the range with other items and designers.

We are thankful to many people, organisations and institutions for supporting us along the way.
