Twenty-six artisans from Norway will be part of the Structure exhibition at Ventura Lambrate, one of the largest off-site districts during Milan Design Week – and the best place to find young talent.
Andreas Engesvik, Lars Beller Fjetland and their contemporaries are making a name for themselves as Norway’s exciting new generation of designers. In Milan, they will be part of an exhibit called Structure: Norwegian Contemporary Crafts and Design. It will bring together the work of 26 Norwegians, also including günzler.polmar, Runa Klock and Vera & Kyte.
According to the press release, the exhibit was arranged by three of Norway’s biggest design/craft potentates: Norwegian Crafts (the craft artists), Klubben (the designers) and Jotun (the paint people), in collaboration with the Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture. They asked the participants have been invited to present one piece that explores one of two themes: “trace” or “structure.”
The result is a broad spectrum of unique interpretations of the exhibit’s theme, including such innovative material applications as Barmen & Brekke’s wood and clay candleholders and Christina Peel’s intricate Folded Porcelain. The diverse results encompass every form and medium, from ceramics and textiles to furniture, sculpture and household objects.
Structure: Norwegian Contemporary Crafts and Design runs April 12 to 17, 2016 in Ventura Lambrate.
