Together with exhibition curator Ditte Hammerstrøm, 17 of Denmark’s leading makers and designers head to Milan in April to present new works created especially for the Danish Arts Foundation’s MINDCRAFT exhibition. The exhibition is presented at the Milan Design Week, one of the world’s most significant design platforms.
The Danish Arts Foundation invited furniture designer Ditte Hammerstrøm to be this year’s curator and exhibition designer. She in turn selected 17 participants among Denmark’s leading craft makers and designers, who were given the opportunity to present new bespoke works to the international audience at one of the world’s most important design events – I am honoured to be amongst the 17 selected designers.
Curator Ditte Hammerstrøm says about her selection:
‘The Danish crafts and design scene is very strong right now. The participants I have selected are among the very best in their field and able to produce site-specific works for the exhibition venue. They all employ an experimental process and take a unique approach to their materials. As a group, they represent the high level of diversity, innovation and quality that characterizes Danish crafts and design right now.’
MINDCRAFT18 is on display from 17 through 22 April in central Milan during the design week, where the historical San Simpliciano cloister forms the setting for the exhibition.
