WHO WE ARE
Lithuanian design block ( LDB ) is a platform connecting Lithuanian designers, small design studios and other companies working in the product design field.
The key directions are:
- help designers develop their brands both locally and internationally
- consult upon export matters
- represent in-house fellas at international design fairs
- advise on financial support for an international approach
Lithuanian design block offers agent services for design companies who lack experience or could not find success in sales. Even the shiniest design products can dust on a shelf without proper sales representation. So, let’s get in touch and discuss your case!
Currently, Lithuanian Design Block is working on a showroom to be opened in the nearest future. This will be the place where various Lithuanian designer products will be displayed for sale. LDB recognizes emerging international trends for shared showroom spaces and adopts locally. It is a great opportunity for new designers and young companies to save money and human resources on sales as well as management.
Lithuanian Design Block represents in-house fellas at international design fairs. From London to New York, from Berlin to Singapore, you name we do it.
Potential export markets, foreign customers, intricate tax matter – all information in one place, in Lithuanian Design Block.
