Dan D, or D-day, is an international festival of design which showcases a best-of production of young designers up to 35 years of age. The festival is always held in the abandoned spaces of Zagreb, thereby reviving forgotten areas of the city. In 2014 and in 2015, the location in question was an abandoned old hospital in Vlaška Street. The hospital environment helped in forming the concept around an “epidemic” of design, which emerged inside the hospital and “spread” all over the city with a mission to make the festival as visible as possible and introduce design as a value to the general audience.
