The street in 10 years – Concéntrico 10

We create the interpretation space of the programme The Street at 10 years with mmcité, a company specialising in urban design through small details from the Czech Republic.

We will be joined by its founder, Czech designer David Karásek, to give a talk about his work at Esdir. He is co-founder of mmcité, creative director of the mmcité design studio and author of several street furniture products that have won international awards. In Logroño we will have 6 units of the Orbit table model which will be the meeting point of the urban space.
