Tools & Craft is an exhibition concept that aims to promote the projects of designers and artisans who combine traditional expertise with innovative and experimental techniques to create contemporary and collectible design pieces. From the application of AI, coding, and 3D printing to glassblowing, casting, and molding techniques, the projects involved will show how design can cherish tradition while fostering innovation. An homage to techniques that have been used for centuries and have created a well of expertise which new generations of designers are building upon and shaping into fresh and modern pieces of design.
The exhibition will be a stage for young designers to showcase their innovation through their creative and one-of-a-kind processes. During the event, some exhibitors involved will take part in live performances to share their expertise with the visitors. The exhibition is made possible by the contributions of Regione Lombardia.
