Dezeen and MINI World Tour: DMY Berlin founder Joerg Suermann gives us a guided tour of this year's design festival in our second report from Berlin.

This year's DMY International Design Festival Berlin took place from 5 to 9 June in two hangers inside the disused Berlin Tempelhof Airport.

The first part of the show Suermann takes us to is DMY New Talents, an area focussing on young and upcoming designers, including German designer Philipp Weber, whose glassblowing trumpet we featured on Dezeen last week.

"We do New Talents because we like to support the young designers," Suermann says. "Normally it's very hard for them to get into the big fairs. We do this New Talents area, with a low price, to give them the chance to show their products to a big audience."

Suermann then shows us the main exhibitor area where "around 300 international designers from more than 30 nations" showcased their products, before taking us to an exhibition called Refugium: Berlin as a Design Principle, which focussed on work by Berlin-based designers.

"The Refugium is curated by Max Borka, a journalist and curator for contemporary design," Suermann explains. "This year we have a cooperation with him to organise the Berlin part of our festival."

Next, Suermann shows us the pieces that were up for contention for the annual Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany. "The German Design Award is open for German designers of course, but also for international designers," Suermann says. "To apply you need to have won a prize before."

Finally, Suermann takes us to the area of the show where university students showed their projects, from 3D-printed ceramics to hand-woven textiles.

"This year we have around 20 universities from ten different countries," Suermann says. "We are one of the biggest platforms in Germany for the universities."

We drove to DMY Berlin in our MINI Cooper S Paceman.

The music featured in the movie is a track called Reso Dream by Simplex. You can listen to the full version on Dezeen Music Project.
