MIKSER is a multidisciplinary platform which centres around the affirmation of cultural industry of the Balkans and the organization of the biggest regional festival of creative arts. MIKSER gathers together professionals and enthusiasts who, through their different transcultural projects, support the development of national and regional creative economy, and who facilitate a dialogue between contemporary global trends and domestic, as well as regional practice. Projects such as ‘Ghost Project’ – the international showcase of young industrial designers, and ‘Young Balkan Designers’ – a selection of the best product designs of the region, which MIKSER proudly displays at Milan’s furniture fair (I Saloni) – the world’s largest design expo. All this exemplifies MIKSER’s philosophy, which is based on the nurture of young talents, not only from the sphere of design, but also from various other creative disciplines. With the creation of its own, unique platform for interaction between designers, architects, artists, companies, independent organisations, public institutions and the media, the Mikser organisation has set-up and now manages its own festival of creative industry, simply known as MIKSER.
