This year is extraordinary in every aspect, and this also applies to the organization of Designblok. In order to maintain the maximum safety of visitors and exhibitors at Gabriel Loci, we summarize the practical information on the visit to the 22nd year of Designblok. The information will be updated on this page.
For the maximum distribution of attendance on all festival days and due to the recommendations of hygienists, the Gabriel Loci space is divided into several sectors, some of which are paid and some have free access. According to current regulations, the number of visitors in each sector will be limited.
The paid sectors are Sector A (part Superstudio, part Openstudio, theme exhibition Passion), Sector B (part Superstudio, part Openstudio, Designerie).Sectors with free access are Art House in Musaion, Church, Exterior, HN Stage / Reflex Stage with accompanying program and Cirque. Each of the sectors has its own entrance and exit.
The opening hours of all exhibition sectors are 10:00 - 22:00 from October 7 to October 11, 2020.
Ticket sales begin on October 1, 2020. To enter sectors A and B, it is necessary to purchase a ticket for a specific day and time slot (see below). Access to other areas is possible without a ticket at any time during opening hours. The ticket is in the form of a QR code and entitles to a one-time entry into the relevant sector at the reserved time. After leaving the space, the ticket expires.
Ticket price always for one sector and one time slot.
Dogs are not allowed on Designblok.
Along with the purchase of a ticket, it is necessary to make a time slot reservation. Only tickets for the unused capacity of the current slot will be on sale during the festival. We therefore recommend that you purchase and reserve a slot as part of a pre-sale.
Every day has 5 time slots (see below), from which it is necessary to choose when buying a ticke. A visitor with a valid ticket will be admitted to the space at any time during the purchased time slot, but regardless of the time of arrival, he will have to leave the sector with the end of the slot. The ticket is one-time and is valid only for one day and one time slot. The ticket is in the form of a QR code and entitles to a one-time entry into the relevant sector.
Time slots for Sector A / B
Designblok offers panel discussions with Czech and foreign guests in the area of Hospodářské noviny Stage supported by CzechTrade / Reflex Stage. They will take place throughout the week and admission is free throughout the festival.
This year, there will be space for storing prams - Kočárkárna. This space is located in the basement of Gabriel Loci and is freely accessible without a ticket. The organizer does not provide guarding of the area. Entrance HN stage and Reflex stage.
We do not provide babysitting this year.
Most of the exhbited products in Openstudio are for sale, so you can buy directly from the designers (payment by card or cash depends on each of the exhibitors). Designblok shop is located on the ground floor of sector B, area B.001. Česká spořitelna's ATM for cash withdrawal is located in the outdoor area.
