Central de Diseño (Matadero)

Set up in Nave 17 at Matadero Madrid since 2007, the Central de Diseño organises all types of  projects related to graphic, industrial and interior design, ranging from the most experimental aspects to training, dissemination and everyday creativity activities.

It is spread over 1600 m², divided into different areas for exhibitions, runways, congresses, pop-up stores, conventions, etc., and areas available for training activities, conferences, presentations, show rooms and smaller events. La Central has a technical floor, projection media, sound systems, free internet access and seats for more than 100 people.

The Madrid Design Foundation of the Madrid Association of  Designers (DIMAD) is responsible for this space which is devoted solely to design,  where all types of projects related to graphic, industrial and interior design are generated.

Among its activities, the Design Market stands out as an initiative to bring the work of young entrepreneurs related to design closer to other professionals, creators and the public. It also offers a good opportunity to buy original objects at competitive prices as well as furniture, adornments and accessories, among many other things. The market takes place over two days and is organised monthly.
