Along with projects by designers “under 35”, selected by the Triennale after an open call, New Craft showcases a selection of objects produced by manufacturing companies and focuses on how the digital revolution has changed the way objects are conceived and produced today.
The exhibition occupies three interconnected halls of the former tram and rail manufacturing plant Carminati & Rossi, which was converted into the Fabbrica del Vapore cultural hub five years ago.
The great central hall accomodates a series of 9 tall installations, which summarize the main themes of the exhibition, the exhibition of works selected after the “under 35” open call, and a large x-shaped concrete table, where experimental works produced during the event, and video-projections are on show; furthermore, the table is used as a place for meetings, discussions and workshops.
In the aisles which border the great hall on both sides accomodates a series of micro exhibitions which – through an impressive set of objects, videos, and interactive installations – illustrate the relationship between advanced technology and traditional craft skills in various fields of design and industrial production, with a special focus on digital manufacturing technologies and 3D printing.
The list of subjects featured is certainly comprehensive and includes, among others, manufacturing processes related to the production of bicycles, wooden and metal furniture, stone-carved objects, dresses and fashion accessories, jewelry, type casting machines, dried pasta, textiles and clay pottery.
