about the exhibition
The exhibition is dedicated to vessels and containers, following the designers' on-going research concerning the cultural aspects of designed objects.
Along the history of human civilization, pots, pans, vases, bottles and bowls were made and used in a specific context: materials have always been related to a local environment and climate; production techniques were closely linked to folk wisdom, family traditions and industrial developments; methods of use are associated with social structures and beliefs.
Vessels have always been part of commercial activity, acting as cultural ambassadors and transferring knowledge between civilizations.
Vessels contain, reflect and reveal culture.
They are a manifestation of the link between nature, human needs and the civilized act of “making”.
This body of work includes vessels which evolved in the light of these ideas.
They are produced in limited editions and involve various techniques and methods of production, from hand-made crafts to contemporary technology.
