Lab Craft

Lab Craft, Crafts Council 

'Mobility for touring exhibitions.'

Designed as a touring exhibition for Crafts Council, Lab Craft is a showcase of digital adventure in contemporary craft.  The exhibition features 26 makers who combine the hand, mind and eye, technical mastery of tools and material, and aesthetic sensibility, with cutting-edge digital technologies.

To reflect the theme of the exhibition, we designed three types of display units for a variety of objects.  In order to lift the objects and invite light around them, we used PMMA sheets, which are normally used as insulation materials. Units are designed to be light weight, also to be dismounted and packed in an economical manner for touring purposes.

『巡回展のための可動性を高めるデザイン』

 

英国工芸協会の巡回展のための展示ユニットと空間構成を手がけました。『Lab Craft』はデジタル技術と工芸の融合を紹介する展示で、26人のデザイナーと工芸家の作品と活動を支えるデジタルラボの紹介です。

 

建築の断熱材として使われるプラスティック素材を使用したのは、テーマを什器にも反映させ、展示品を軽やかに見せるため、そして巡回展のための軽量化です。

 

展覧会の詳細は英国工芸協会のHP内、Lab Craftにて。
