A New Exhibition in Milan Explores the Technological Revolution That’s Disrupting Design
From Interior Design Magazine:
According to “New Craft”—an exhibition that opened this month as part of the XXI Triennale di Milanoprogram—so great is the influence of technology that the term ‘craft’ now encompasses everything from 3D-printed engine components to containers grown from mycelium.
“A new generation of artisans is aiming to couple design with new technologies in order to promote variety and customization,” says Stefano Micelli, the exhibit’s curator. “The strength of these technologically advanced artisans is that they have reformulated the traditional sequence of concept-prototyping-construction-distribution, which was a feature of the heroic age of industrial development, using the internet as a platform for dialogue and interaction.”
