Studio Tours span two nights, gathering design professionals in a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of influential Bay Area design studios. Guests have the opportunity to see projects in progress, learn about firms’ cultures and methodologies, and gather together to celebrate San Francisco design.

Every year around 600 people visit the studio tours that showcase the best of the Bay Area. This year over 40 studios with specialization in fashion design, architecture, branding, interactive and experience design, and industrial design will open their doors for the visitors during the two nights of tours.

Wednesday’s tour “Mid-Market – Hayes Valley – Mission – Bernal Heights” starts in the Mid-Market area in the North and Bernal Heights in the South and ends in one center – Mission District. Start your tour in one of these locations and follow the route, or create your own route by visiting the studios you wish to tour. Studio Tours are free. Bring your friends and colleagues!

San Francisco Design Week educates and inspires through a wide variety of events hosted by organizations and companies across the Bay Area. Our growing event line-up features programming across design disciplines – graphic, interior, fashion, architecture, service, industrial and more – and open to all.
