The Ambient Ljubljana Furniture Fair and the Dom Plus Exhibition: Announcement
Until 13 November 2016, the 27th Ambient Ljubljan Fair is being held in the Commercial Expo Centre in Ljubljana. The ‘Dom plus Dom’ exhibition operates in parallel with the fair.
Under the motto “Housing!” (in Slovenian—Vse za dom!), visitors can get acquainted with a large assortment of furniture and interior design options as well as with the design of sections dedicated to home furnishings, heating and cooling systems, prefabricated houses, security and care for the local areas.
Both events involve 182 companies from 17 countries. The five best participants and the winning company received awards during the opening ceremony in the Urška hall. The representatives of the Commercial Expo Centre present the awards annually. The awarded products will be presented in a separate exhibition hall in Kocka. The winner of the “Furniture of the Year” prize, awarded by the expert commission of the Association of Slovenia’s Designers (Društvo oblikovalcev Slovenije), will be also announced today. The commission includes Mateja Panter, Jurij Dobrila and Tea Goljevšček.
Free Architect Consultation
There is a free “Top Arhitekti” architect consultation for the exhibition guests. Thus, organizers want to emphasize the importance of life culture and demonstrate the significance of the profession of an architect and a designer. At this time, three architectural firms are involved in consultation: Mojca Berhtold and Marjeta Fortuna Lamovšek, Studio Anio (Urša Križman and Luka Fabjan) and Notranja-oprema.net (Sabina Belak and Jernej Orhini). All who wish to obtain advice on remodelling a house must register in advance for a 30-minute conversation with a specialist and to bring a project and photos of rooms.
Top Ideje – Exhibition for Young Designers
The ‘Top Ideje’ exhibition is held for the seventh time in a row as part of the Ambient Ljubljana Furniture Fair, in which young designers, architects and other creative individuals with innovative ideas and objects take part. The ‘Top Ideje’ is held on the initiative of the Commercial Expo Centre providing young designers with an opportunity of presenting their works for free and publicly. At the same time, the organizers initiate a dialogue between the experts in the field of design, the furniture manufacturers and the end users.
