We recently recommended Formista, a design store and gallery perfect for gifts if you are still snapping up some goodies for Christmas. Another place that we have to mention is Market Design 2013, with the second edition being held in the Factory Mortiz. The collaboration of ADI - FAD (Association of Industrial Design Promotion of Arts and Design), diarioDESIGN (online magazine about design and architecture) and Moritz (beer factory, fully restored by French architect Jean Nouvel) has given the go ahead for the flea market for the design obsessed to take place in the lead up to Christmas.
