We are a Luxembourg-based cultural organisation promoting the work of designers.

Design Friends asbl is a non-profit association which was founded in 2009. We mainly focus on producing talks with international designers and on publishing the monographic catalogues on those occasions.

All our talks are for free (whether you are a member or not), held in english, at the auditorium of the MUDAM (the "Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean") in Luxembourg.

The General Assembly 2022 approved the composition of the board of Design Friends as follows: Anabel Witry (President), Heike Fries (Secretary), Guido Kröger (Treasurer) — Claudia Eustergerling, Reza Kianpour, Dana Popescu, Hyder Razvi as Board members — Silvano Vidale and Charline Guille-Burger as Counsellors.
