Week of September 30th, 2019 – Oktoberfest

The annual Oktoberfest celebration is reaching its end in Munich, Germany this week. In celebration of the time-honored festival, we’ve found some amazing residential and commercial design projects with German influence. From Berlin-based designers to beer halls, here are our 5 best design posts of the week.

1. Industrial and Open

3. Comfort and Color

4. Efficiency from Good Design
