NEXT Service Design takes place at Alte Münze Berlin - a venue centrally located in the heart of Berlin, close to Alexanderplatz. What used to be a mint for more than 60 years, is now one of the German capital’s coolest event locations. At Alte Münze, history meets design, art and media. Its rough industrial look creates a unique ambience, which various brands have used for events, e.g. JS Conf, Red Dot Design Award, Levi’s and Calvin Klein.
