About the GRASSIMESSE

The GRASSIMESSE is an international meeting point for those interested in design and passionate für beautiful things. It is even an art exhibition and a trade fair for applied art and product design from all fields.

Artisans, designers and companies offer one-of-a-kind objects, small series, etc. from areas of fabric, fashion, jewellery, ceramics, glass, furniture, metal, leather, paper and toys. The exhibitors are chosen anew every year by a specialist jury.

GRASSIMESSE thereby reflects the world of ideas and the diversity of the current applied art and design. It continues the tradition of the historical Grassimesse even founded in 1920, which became famous as the "meeting point of modernity".

It is held every year in the second half of October at GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts in Leipzig, Germany.
