Matadero Madrid | ¡SIN LÍMITES! Holanda, diseño para un mundo mejor | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Madrid | 14.01.2016 - 08.02.2016

"De una idea de Yksi Ontwerp nace ¡Sin límites!, una exposición que muestra objetos diseñados por y para gente con discapacidad.

17 diseñadores holandeses han convertido limitaciones físicas y psíquicas en oportunidades. La mayoría de ellos ha trabajado con personas con alguna discapacidad y en otros casos es el mismo diseñador quien tiene alguna limitación. Juntos han creado productos para mayores y atletas, para disléxicos y para personas con trastornos de crecimiento, entre otros."

The State Hermitage Museum | Golden Generation. Modernism in Finnish Architecture and Design

The State Hermitage Museum | Golden Generation. Modernism in Finnish Architecture and Design | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

St. Petersburg | 14.11.2015 - 31.01.2016

"The “Golden Generation” of figures who brought fame and glory to Finnish architecture and design in the 1930s–60s adopted from the Modernist movement and the International Style primarily those methods that accorded with their national mentality and tradition. Perhaps it was due to this latter circumstance that the phenomenon of Finnish Modernism arose: it is a fairly pragmatic and introverted school, always following home-grown traditions, oriented on local materials and climatic peculiarities. Independence aids survival irrespective of short-term tendencies and the looks that architects and designers produced 70 years ago are still relevant."

MoMA | This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good

MoMA | This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

New York | -- 18.01.2016

"Is design in the digital age—so often simply assumed to be for the greater good—truly for everyone? From initial exploratory experiments to complex, and often contested, hybrid digital-analog states, all the way to “universal” designs, This Is for Everyone explores this question with works from MoMA’s collection that celebrate the promise—and occasional flipside—of contemporary design."

Hamburg | 11.12.2015 - 03.04.2016

"Jack-knives, scissors, gloves and measuring instruments are items of daily use that make life easier but don’t receive much attention from their users. The Swiss product designer and teacher Franco Clivio (b. 1942) has collected them ‒ some 1,000 objects, for the most part small in scale [...]. What these articles have in common is clever form and functionality based on unusual ideas and designs."

Nationalmuseum | The New Map | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Stockholm | 04.12.2015 - 14.02.2016

How can we find a new pathway for local production and consumption? 24 designers and 24 manufacturers are investigating a new model of collaboration.

The New Map exhibition is intended as a contribution to the debate on how local, small-scale manufacturing can form part of a strategy for long-term, sustainable economic and social development. Redrawing of the global consumption and production map is already under way. Just like the food we eat, the products of the future will, to a greater extent, be produced locally, pass through fewer intermediaries, be manufactured on a smaller scale and be fairer for everyone involved.

Valladolid | 05.10.2015 - 10.01.2016
”Pensándolo bien, creo que los juegos de mi infancia han sido lo más importante. Al jugar con la madera, uno la disfruta con los sentidos. Con frecuencia, la gente no conoce el placer de experimentar con los sentidos, y por eso les cuesta entender el arte moderno” (Hans J. Wegner, 1951.)

En Dinamarca, Hans J. Wegner es uno de los diseñadores más relevantes de su generación. Desde finales de los años 1940 y los siguientes 25 años, Wegner constituyó junto con Finn Juhl y Kay Bojesen, la vanguardia de lo que se ha llegado a denominar “Danish Modern”.

"Showcasing a wide selection of designs, the museum documents the contemporary understanding of design in Spain and highlights the international appeal of this year’s visiting nation at the Essener Lichtwochen, a festival of illumination in the German city of Essen. The popularity of present-day Spanish design is due to its diverse use of forms, colours, materials and stylistic concepts. But it is also the effortless way in which the traditional and the modern meld to create a balanced whole that has contributed to its global reputation. The success of Spanish designers and manufacturers is also illustrated by the results of the Red Dot Award, one of the largest international design competitions."

London | 30.11.2015 - 16.01.2016

"The eighth edition of Prototypes and Experiments will show models, samples, tests and iterations picked fresh from the studio shelves of architects and designers. This exhibition series has been ongoing at The Aram Gallery since 2008, asking participants from a broad range of disciplines to show ideas in development and give us an understanding of their creative process. 

In tune with the gallery’s interest in how designers think, plan and communicate three-dimensionally, each exhibitor will present not just a finished project, but the development work involved. An accompanying commentary will explain the purpose of each exercise, its meaning to the final work and how it assisted the designer with making decisions along the way."

"Viatjar amb distinció és una expressió que ens evoca, abans que res, un viatge, ja sigui amb tren, amb cotxe, amb metro, amb helicòpter o dalt d’un elefant; i, en segon lloc, una manera de fer-ho, amb distinció, és a dir, amb elegància o bé d’una manera singular, diferent de la convencional. Aquestes imatges són fotografies de moda que tenen com a escenari principal un mitjà de transport que ens suggereix un viatge, real, quotidià o fantasiós, de somni. En realitat, són un petit tast de la Col·lecció de Fotografia de Moda que el Museu del Disseny de Barcelona presenta per primera vegada a la seva seu fins al final del març del 2016."

El disseny gràfic és, tradicionalment, una eina de comunicació visual. Estem acostumats a percebre la informació gràfica mitjançant el sentit de la vista. Una tornada a les tècniques i processos artesanals, anteriors a l'era digital, l’ús de la tercera dimensió i una aproximació física a les solucions gràfiques, ens han permès percebre el disseny gràfic mitjançant altres sentits, redefinint la relació entre el disseny gràfic i el material.
