Lamanufacture a labour of love

Design is Capital


Vue de l’exposition La Manufacture, a labour of love, Gare Saint-Sauveur, Lille, 2020
From September 9, 2020 until November 8, 2020
This exhibition, created by world-renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort, explores the way a new generation of designers is experimenting with materials and manufacturing processes.
The past decade has seen a turning point in our relationship with materials, from design to manufacturing, with materials gradually reclaiming their central role in the creative process and beginning to dictate form rather than simply adapt to it.
The exhibition explores the power of materials, which use the sense of touch to convey emotion and energy.
It draws on the so-called ​neo-materialist” movement, which reasserts the centuries-old beliefs that materials have their own force and exude an energy that people can genuinely feel.
