Superstudio also houses the Hospodářské noviny Stage where lectures, workshops and company presentations take place every day.

Openstudio – space for expositions of designers, schools and studios

Designblok’s Openstudio, a creative lab of contemporary design, is dedicated to exhibitions of designers, studios, school studios and students who exhibit mostly prototypes and small-scale production without a commercial producer. Some two hundred Czech and international participants present themselves in Openstudio: these are primarily product, fashion and jewellery designers, graphic designers and illustrators. A section of Openstudio is dedicated to the Designblok Diploma Selection exhibition, a selective show of the best European graduation projects. Openstudio includes another Designblok support programme: the Erste Premiere Talent Display where Czech students present their works in a curatorial selection.

             Exhibitor can offer his products for sale.

Openstudio also houses the Reflex Stage, a platform where workshops, lectures and designer presentations take place every day.

Are you a designer, a studio or a school and want to present your work in Openstudio? Are you an art school graduate and want to participate in the international competition Diploma Selection in the category of product or fashion design? Submit your application form.

Openstudio is managed by Alžběta Gabrielová (+420 728 952 123;


Exterior – space for expositions of companies, shops and producers but also designers, schools and studios


             Exterior combines expositions of Superstudio and Openstudio

Space is allocated by Organiser following an agreement with Applicant. It is dedicated to presentations of Exhibitors whose specialisation puts them both in Superstudio and Openstudio. When the size of exposition, specialisation and safety are considered, it can reveal as more convenient to place the exposition in the open-air section of Designblok.

If you are interested in Exterior, please contact manager Jan Makalouš (+420 736 515 360; who is responsible for this space.


City / Galleries, Studios, Showrooms (spaces located outside St Gabriel’s Monastery) – galleries, pop-up shops, shops and showrooms and any other space the entity chooses for its presentation and is produced and used by it based on existence of a valid independent legal title.


Dozens of galleries, exhibition spaces and showrooms in Prague have become an inherent part of Designblok. They prepare their own programme and special events for the audience during Designblok. Fashion brands, pop-up shops, jewellers and showrooms open exhibitions in their own spaces, as well as Prague art schools who exhibit works by their students and graduates. Museums exhibiting and collecting design also participate in this section of Designblok. You will find all the participants in the Map (link).

If you want to participate with your exhibition space in the city, the contact person is Jan Makalouš (+420 736 515 360;
