Design POP embraces the natural beauty and unique character of the selected locations around Cork city. By using public spaces, it creates local engagement through the interactive pavilions and installations.
These installations will link up to create a brand new food and design trail around the city.
Six designers were selected in 2018 to design an installation structure for each of the six different locations. These six designers have joined forces with six Cork based food and drink producers to create a bespoke space that supports the ethos of each brand in a highly designed structure.
The weekend’s event program will give artists, creatives, food stylists, producers, designers and makers a platform to discuss and showcase their work processes. These events will happen all over the city both within the designed structures and in amazing spaces around Cork city that already champion design and education. The weekend is a celebration of innovation, creativity and Cork.
Our very own Thompson House is the hub of Design POP with talks, discussions and workshops all happening there along with an unmissable food market only from May 17-19. Loving Salads, Hederman Smoked Salmon, Cork Coffee Roasters Cully & Sully will be offering a selection of treats to keep you fueled up as you discover the festival. #FoodMarket #DesignPOP19 #IrishFestival #crossthebridge
