3D rendering in the design industry

Adorno Editorial

To explore the world of 3D rendering and its uses in the collectible design industry, Adorno has teamed up with a diverse group of fourteen 3D artists, a rare breed of tech-savvy aestheticians, to interpret a range of pieces in their imaginative environments.⁠ These independent artists are receiving a vast amount of attention across social media platforms – for good reason! There are endless possibilities in this space, allowing artists and designers free rein when it comes to design and scenography.⁠

Tactile Pureness

Curated by Elien Haentjens

Journalist and Belgian curator Elien Haentjen’s latest collection – which includes sustainable use of material wastes, tactile approaches to textile, and experimental jewellery – speaks to the variety of narratives and identities in the Belgian contemporary design scene as well as the sensual tactility that each piece evokes. Haentjens describes that these “creations are an invitation to slow down and to emotionally connect” and that, with this moment of connection, “their subtle beauty evokes quietness in our turbulent, often digitally driven world”.⁠
