Following its debut in Cork last year, Design Pop, Cork’s new trendy design and food festival will return from May 22nd – 24th, 2020.
The festival will once again see six designers team up with six food producers to create a trail of pop-up pavilions at various locations across the city.
Exhibitions, talks and workshops will be planned too, allowing artists, creatives, food stylists, producers, designers, and makers, to discuss and showcase their work processes.
The 2019 edition saw designers Shane O’Driscoll, Alan Macilwraith, Fíor studios, Meitheal Architects, Conor Merriman, and Alex Pentex team up with food specialists Banana Melon, Good Day Deli, All Full up, My Goodness, Soma and Applebee cakes.
The new pairings for the 2020 festival will be revealed in the coming weeks.
“Design POP’s first year was a huge success and a wonderful experience for all involved.” said Festival Director Amy McKeogh, an architect with a masters degree from University College Cork.
“Design POP celebrated Cork, design and food in new and exciting ways. I am really looking forward to seeing how we build on the success of last year and to see what is created this year by all the talented collaborators.”
“Our ambition is to make Design POP the number one cultural, creative and design-led event in Ireland and it seeks to establish Cork as the heart of it all.”
