L’artisan Electronique by Unfold + Tim Knapen In L’Artisan Electronique, pottery, one of the oldest artisanal techniques for making utilitarian objects, is combined with new digital techniques. The virtual pottery wheel was realsied by means of a 3D-scanner and digital design software. However, the installation still clearly refers to the artisanal process of working in clay. The printing process imitates the traditional technique used by ceramicists, in which the form is built up by stacking coils of clay.

Salone Milan 2017
Tom Dixon’s 2015 Catalogue
Dedece Skyscraper Project
A communication works when it harnesses the sociology of the times, thus the Salone del Mobile.Milano is presenting a new image encompassing both past and future.
The stylised eye was the first symbol used by the Salone in 1961. It is its’ origin, its’ birth, and the graphic of its’ early successes.
Kitchens & Invaders at the Museum of Design in the Triennale di Milan, tells of the gradual but inexorable mutation of kitchen utensils into machines and robots.
It takes its inspiration from the science-fiction novel The Body Snatchers, written by Jack Finneyin 1955, and from the film based on the book and directed by Don Siegel. Both have come to be seen as bringing about a break and a transformation in the collective imagination
This is an army of “invaders” which, since the mid-nineteenth century and the advent of industrialisation, has spread out and taken the place of many human activities in the kitchen.
