Hands on Design
Exhibition, Designmuseum Gent, Ghent, Belgium.
This is all about the chemistry between the maker, the designer, and the company.
Hands on Design showcases design that is inspired and produced thanks to the innovative power of traditional methods and craftsmanship, presenting a superb selection of contemporary and historic products that are perfect examples of outstanding craft skills and the master’s touch. As a user, one can feel the difference between a store-bought kitchen knife or chair and a handmade knife or chair, but sometimes it is dificult to pinpoint that difference. The exhibition reveals this invisible added value, the influence of the master’s hand and craftsmanship.
