Where the future is being made


Designer's Dinner is not just nice food and a glass of wine in good company. 

Now in its eleventh edition, Designer's Dinner is perhaps one of the world's best kept secrets: an evening with twelve amazing thought leaders, each year in a different location around the world.
Twelve fascinating minds who inspire each other to make this world a better place.

Designing a better world

At previous designer's dinners, scientists, journalists, architects, engineers, statesmen, artists and innovators shared their best ideas with each other. Never there is an agenda, yet always the conversations have been fascinating. Great things happen when honest food brings some of the world's best minds together.
