A Design Walk is a guided tour to local design agencies who have taken upon them to welcome you into their offices, answer your questions and showcase some of their work. This is a chance to meet great designers eye-to-eye on their home ground and a perfect way for international guests to experience the Vilnius design scene. Each stop lasts for about 30 minutes. This walk visits two design agencies in an old factory.
