The inaugural Novembar Party, a unique celebration of design and wine, recently illuminated the historic Bioskop Balkan in Belgrade, a venue emblematic of the city’s cultural and architectural evolution since the 19th century.
This exclusive event, powered byADS Wine and in media partnership with DSCENE Magazine, showcased the innovative designs of Woak Design, elevating the evening into a story of aesthetic and sensory experiences for its inaugural occurrence.
At the heart of the event were Woak Design’s furniture masterpieces, reflecting the brand’s ethos of blending modern living culture with sustainable practices. Woak Design is renowned for its commitment to incorporating a range of cultural influences into its products. Their designs reflect not only local traditions but also the diverse backgrounds and experiences of designers hailing from over 10 different countries. This blend of multicultural influences imbues their furniture with a unique value that goes beyond the conventional, contributing significantly to the brand’s overarching vision and identity.
In addition to Woak Design’s furniture, the event spotlighted Wall & Deco‘s ‘La famiglia Pois’ wallpaper collection by Fashion Designer Antonio Marras. This collection added an artistic dimension to the venue, enhancing the visual experience with its distinctive designs and patterns. Complementing the design showcase, ADS Wine, a company with a long-standing history of importing and distributing premium wines, offered an exquisite wine tasting experience. Celebrating its 21st anniversary, ADS Wine has established itself as a leader in bringing renowned wines from Italy, France, Slovenia, Portugal, and Croatia to the Serbian market. Guests were treated to a curated selection of ADS Wine’s finest, including labels such as Fontanafredda, Movia, Dolce & Gabbana from Donnafugata, Caparzo, Monteverdi, Jean Durup, and Bertani.

Adding to the wine experience, Shiroco introduced specially designed wine-holder bags for glasses, blending functionality with style.

The atmosphere was further enriched by the melodies of a live jazz band, followed by a DJ set that resonated well into the night. The event attracted a diverse crowd of over 500 guests, including prominent architects, designers, and members of the fashion world, making it a landmark event in Belgrade’s cultural calendar.
