Emerging tendencies in Scandinavian design
Curator: Petra Lilja for the Swedish Embassy and the Finnish Embassy in Bucharest
18-24 May//10:00-22:00// Lecture: 17 May, starting 19:00
The exhibition shows a number of examples of contemporary design from different areas and focuses on three strong tendencies: designers who work with small-scale or artisanal production, designers who work conceptually rather than commercially and designers merging social commentary with design and art. The selection favors young as well as established designers from Sweden and Finland rather than big design brands or producers and it aims at showing a slice of emerging tendencies in contemporary Scandinavian design.
Glimpt of Romania
The exhibition is showing Swedish design duo Glimptˈs latest work with Roma craftsmen in Transylvania, developed together with and for Mesteshukar ButiQ in Romania. Glimpt works internationally together with craftsmen to develop new products inspired by the artisans. Often inspired by a technique, material, a color combination or a pattern, something more contemporary is created and the work of the artisan is set in a new context.
18-24 May//program 10:00-22:00
