Put together by, friend of Bitique, and fellow Manchester-based designer, Dave Sedgwick, BCN:MCR features five of the very, very best Barcelona based design agencies of the moment – Hey, Lamosca, Lo Siento, Mayúscula and Mucho.Opening on Thursday 21 February at Manchester venue 2022NQ – the exhibition will provide a rare opportunity for designers, creatives and culture enthusiasts everywhere, to experience the work of award-winning, pioneering and original design from Barcelona. In addition to the works which will be on display at 2022NQ, each agency has also been issued with their own individual letter of the exhibition title, ‘BCN:MCR’, and will submit their own unique, creative response to this. Sedgwick will be completing the 6th letter with his own contribution to complete the collaboration. This will be on display at the newly opened TAKK coffee shop, 6 Tariff Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester – for who Dave has recently designed the branding.
A must-see talk will also be held at 2022NQ on Friday 22nd February featuring Borja Martinez, of Lo Siento and Pablo Juncadella, of Mucho, Rocio Martinavarro from Mayúscula and Veronica Fuerta from Hey.
