GRASSIMESSE is an international meeting place for design enthusiasts and lovers of beautiful things. It is an art exhibition and sales fair in one. Contemporary artists, craftsmen and designers can be discovered and all art objects and products can also be purchased.
The exhibitors offer unique pieces, small series and exemplary product design from the fields of textiles, fashion, jewelry, ceramics, glass, furniture, metal, leather, paper and toys. Each year a jury of experts selects the exhibitors according to high qualitative standards.
The GRASSIMESSE thus reflects the world of ideas and diversity of current applied art and design. It promotes artistic developments and raises awareness for design quality.
The fair is in the tradition of the historic Grassimessen, which was founded in 1920 and became famous as the "meeting place of modernity". Since its reestablishment in 1997, it has been held once a year on the last weekend in October at the GRASSI Museum für Angewandte Kunst.
