Summary note:
Until recently 'craft' was synonymous with old-fashioned. However, the word has come back into vogue - 'craft' is now trending. The virtual world creates a longing for tangible objects with a known maker and a clear story. Innovative technologies such as 3D printing, and water and laser cutting make crafts profitable again for producers. They stimulate the designer's creativity and create affordable products for the consumer. Hands on Design offers an overview of these objects, arisen from cooperation between designers and companies. Technology, industry, craft and sustainability are no longer opposing concepts; rather, they are the collaborative pillars of design. Exhibition: Design Museum Ghent, Belgium (19.11.2016-05.03.2017).
