There is also the Festival OFF, which allows numerous design-related places around Madrid to get involved, including pop-up shops, studios, galleries, workshops and restaurants.

The Food Design Experience offers diners the chance to taste iconic designs from the past 100 years, as they’re transformed into tapas to create an innovative meal.
