Disseny Hub Barcelona | Out of the Box. Design made in Israel

Disseny Hub Barcelona | Out of the Box. Design made in Israel | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 02.06.2014 - 31.08.2014

"Does Israeli design exist? The general answer would be no. Not Israeli, rather a design made in Israel; made in this emotionally stressful environment, in an amalgamation of cultural, familial humanism, and mainly the passion to create ex-nihilo. In this exhibition, curated especially for the Barcelona Design Week by Design Museum Holon, they have chosen to present a group of artists who, each in his own way, express a thinking process taking place outside the box. Some express, in their work, an innovative technological thinking, some do it through forms or material, and others through a re-reading of us, the users."

MuVIM | Cada letra cuenta una historia - Diseño de tipografía en España desde 1990

MuVIM | Cada letra cuenta una historia - Diseño de tipografía en España desde 1990 | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Valencia | 10.06.2014 - 13.07.2014

"«Cada letra cuenta una historia. Diseño de tipografía en España desde 1990» [...] da a conocer el estado de la creación tipográfica más reciente realizada por nuestros diseñadores. Trata, asimismo, de acercar la tipografía a un público no especializado. De ahí que el hilo conductor de la exposición discurra en torno a una idea central: aunque apenas nos fijamos en ella, la letra forma parte esencial de nuestra vida cotidiana. Es el vehículo de los mensajes escritos y la forma visible de las palabras pero es, sobre todo, cultura o, como decía el prestigioso diseñador estadounidense Paul Rand, es un Arte con mayúsculas.

De todo esto son muy conscientes los diseñadores de tipos, quienes, además de tener en cuenta aspectos como la legibilidad y el posible uso de sus fuentes, las diseñan a partir de conceptos como el humor, la identidad, la ironía, la geometría, la historia, el arte, las relaciones multiculturales, etc... Por eso se podría decir que cada letra cuenta una historia."

La Sala Vinçon | Curro Claret - More Than This

La Sala Vinçon | Curro Claret - More Than This | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 04.06.2014 - 05.07.2014

"This exhibition is about making things, chairs in particular.

In 2010 we started with the Arrels Foundation (an organization that works to help people who live or have lived on the streets) designing stools with the help of a small piece of metal and reused materials. Over time with the same piece we also made benches, tables, lamps, hooks… even a shoe shop for Camper. Now I have designed another piece that complements the first part and allows a backrest to be put on it.

In the exhibition a collection of chairs made with these two pieces is displayed, some are made by people from the Arrels Foundation and others by people from very different backgrounds. None of the authors really come from the design field. In each case, the chairs are made using very different materials and techniques, the resources and skills available are those each individual has."

Kent State University Museum | Pretty Pleats | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Kent, Ohio | 28.06.2013 - 29.06.2014

"Pleating is one of the most basic fabric treatments as it serves to create three-dimensional clothing out of two-dimensional cloth. Folds and draping occur naturally when cloth is wrapped around the body. As tailored clothing developed in the West, these folds were stitched down, creating pleats. Pleats can also be produced through heat treatment of fabric to form intentional, lasting creases"

Centraal Museum | Fashion, the musical

Centraal Museum | Fashion, the musical | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Utrecht | 07.06.2014 - 30.11.2014

"More than 150 items are selected by Piet Paris from the Centraal Museum collection and presented in a surprising manner: as scenes in a musical.

Taking the visitor from backstage and the red carpet to – eventually- the stage, he shows  more than fifty looks by designers such as Comme des Garçons, Maison Martin Margiela, Iris van Herpen, Viktor & Rolf, but also 17th and 18th century costumes. Paris wants to show fashion in context, and not isolation. He combines fashion with objects, which he actually puts to use: ticking clocks, flower-filled vases and burning lights. He breaks the anonymity of the mannequin by giving each one a complete outfit, as well as a face drawn by the illustrator himself. Piet Paris literally brings the Centraal Museum collection to life."

"Mathematical concepts underpin many craft techniques, especially around textile construction, and can be key tools for artistic development. This exhibition’s intention is to unlock and demystify maths by showing unique and stimulating works of art, and also inviting in-depth consideration of contemporary artistic and craft practices in this wider context. Beauty is the First Test sets out to show that art and mathematics are more closely bound together than many perceive and that the enjoyment of one can enhance the understanding of the other."

Les Arts Décoratifs | De la Chine aux Arts Décoratifs : l’art chinois dans les collections du musée des Arts décoratifs

Les Arts Décoratifs | De la Chine aux Arts Décoratifs : l’art chinois dans les collections du musée des Arts décoratifs | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Paris | 13.02.2014 - 29.06.2014

"For the first time, the De la Chine aux Arts Décoratifs exhibition is revealing the exceptional quality and scope of Les Arts Décoratifs’ collection of Chinese d’objets d’art. The fruit of acquisitions made in the first decades after our institution was founded, and of gifts and bequests by generous collectors, this remarkable ensemble reflects the fascination for Chinese art in France, principally in the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. The interest of these donors in the art of China, and more broadly the Far and Near East, often stemmed from their fascination for certain techniques and materials, and for their forms and decorative motifs. The pieces on display reveal exquisite skills and plunge us into the fascinating, intriguing universe that revitalised the French ornamental vocabulary, from the first World’s Fairs until very recent times"

Atomium | Mobilia - 100 Years Design by Belgian Architects

Atomium | Mobilia - 100 Years Design by Belgian Architects | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Brussels | 12.02.2014 - 15.06.2014

"“MOBILIA”, an exhibition that charts the careers of thirty Belgian architects over a period of one hundred years, emphasizes the connection between architecture, interior design and furniture. Since 1900, the number of architects opting for a total creative approach has multiplied. They have delivered original and exclusive projects from the design of the facade to the design of door handles. “MOBILIA” is an opportunity to take stock of this tradition and take a look at the way it is being interpreted today.

The exhibition presents a series of furniture and objects created by the aforementioned Belgian architects. Each element of furniture illustrates how each architect manages to translate their style, concerns and philosophy, into the final design. The exhibition covers the period from Art Nouveau to the present day, although the pieces are not shown in chronological order. The range of work – from prototypes to mass-produced objects – are grouped around different themes."
