As in previous years, The White Night for Product Creators and Designers managed to create in all three cities mentioned, the specific of a contemporary art gallery and served as a platform dedicated to dialogue between creators and visitors. DJ Never Over and DJ Frunză took care of the atmosphere, bringing the most interesting social chill rhythms and groove influences.
The participants belonging to seven creative fields shared their ideas and techniques to those who came to the exhibition – visitors, bloggers, and photographers. In this way, visual artists, architects, product designers, unique product creators, multimedia designers, graphic designers and sculptors turned shapes, expression and color into three great galleries.
