Local creative network
Swab Barcelona 2020 remains true to its goal of promoting the local creative network, and does so by empowering Barcelona’s talent through its many artistic trends and disciplines. This first virtual edition of the fair, in order to preserve the human quality in the digital experience, dedicates spaces to gastronomy, industrial design and music.
This way, the gastronomic offer of Swab 2020 will run, one more year, in charge of Flash Flash, a reference restaurant in Barcelona, with 50 years full of history, design and modernity, a cult to the savoir faire of the things. This gastronomic institution in Barcelona invites virtual visitors of Swab to discover its menu and order food at home through Glovo.
On the other hand, the Swab Picnic area is flooded with music from the MIRA Digital Arts Festival, whose artists have drawn up Spotify lists especially for Swab 2020. Visitors will be able to listen to their tracklists as they walk through the corridors of the fair, warming up for the new features that the next edition of the festival will bring in November, a project that, with each passing year, is consolidating more and more as an international reference.
Finally, this virtual edition is graced with the iconic pieces of Escofet, a Catalan industrial design firm that, with more than 130 years of history behind it, has become one of the big names on the international scene. Their pieces FLOR can be found in the central corridor of the fair, whose design aspires to reflect the values of equality and diversity that mark the line of research of the architects Mansilla and Tuñón.
