Dedicated to Design… The middle of September marks the beginning of a much-anticipated event in Germany: the Oktoberfest! For just over two weeks, everything will be about beer, oompah music, dirndl, lederhosen and pretzels. That is why this month’s Dedicated to Design also simply had to be about the Oktoberfest.
