Croatian Holiday 2012

www.designtourism.org


Croatian Holiday 2012 is a collection of products inspired by tourism. This traveling exhibition is a charming and nostalgic way of dealing with the country’s clichés and stereotypes, while evoking the seaside atmosphere. Its main purpose is to stimulate debate on the importance of connecting design and tourism in Croatia.
20 young Croatian designers have been asked to participate and undertake creative research and a critical approach in questioning the sociology of tourism. The result is an imaginary brand consisting of 15 products commenting on the future of tourism, while at the same time relying on the existing heritage and tourist experience of the country.
The collection engulfs a wide array of products intended for tourism interiors/exteriors, such as cute and witty puns, souvenirs, urban installations and ready-made items.
