Adorno presents “Crossovers” at London Design Fair 2019. The exhibition will present dynamic works by independent designers working in the intersection of design, art, and crafts from a selection of local design scenes celebrating the designers and communities playing a vital role in maintaining and renewing today’s design and crafts culture.
The show will highlight the aesthetic traits and beauty of each scene, facilitating a cross-cultural dialogue – a dialogue that takes its departure from design, but evolves to further cultural and societal issues.
The exhibition is organised with leading design curators from each of the design scenes and will showcase unique collections presenting the trends and styles of the different local design scenes, reflecting the current state of today’s local design and crafts cultures. The central focus is placed on the artist, working in the intersection between art, design and craft. These artists are vital in defining the individual scenes; developing a new design language while maintaining and reinterpreting historic traditions in a combination of old and new techniques.
