Rajzefiber Biro was part of research theme nanotourism at the BIO 50, 24th Biennial of Design Ljubljana. Nanotourism is a creative critique to the current downsides of conventional tourism, as a participatory, locally oriented, bottom-up alternative tourism, mentored by Aljoša Dekleva and Tina Gregorič. Nanotourism has been awarded with the exhibition’s highest honour the Best Collaboration Award by the BIO50 jury (Konstantin Grcic, Saša J. Maechtig, Alice Rawsthorn). The project was also nominated for the interior of the year 2014 at Month of Design. The project was developed as extremely SITE SPECIFIC—not only in terms of experiencing the local environment, but also as a reaction towards many problems that the city of Maribor is facing. It is a kind of URBAN CATALYST, by which we could inhabit unused and empty spaces of the city, promote small economies and give people a professional recognition and a possibility to work. Rajzefiber Biro was strategically established in an abandoned shop within the old city centre. Collectively self-renovated project space operates as a multipurpose place for exchange, performance, education and production. It is a melting pot, a platform that constantly researches and follows the needs of co-creators of touristic/cultural/artistic activities.
