Sublime by Hand

'IWD Italian workshop design' was a week long workshop organised by the Italian Chair District. The workshop was a selection of eight international designers chosen by French Creative Sam Baron, each designer was coupled with a different company.

The district is located in the heart of the Friuli Venezi Giulia district, where there is a huge network of furniture manufacturing capabilities: from traditional carpentry techniques to state of the art modern processes, they work with a vast selection of materials from wood, metals, textiles and plastics.

My host for the week was Calligaris, the modern Italian furniture company who set me an exciting brief to answer. The first prototype will be launched in 2013
