Design Gallerist: The New Revival of the Arts and Crafts Movement ⇒ In the last few decades, increasingly sophisticated mass production methods have led to an abundance of choices for consumers. However, that sometimes causes a loss of individuality and quality.  More and more people are rejecting machine-produced products in favour of handmade products. This social trend mirrors the original Arts and Crafts Movement of the 19th century when people advocated a return to traditional craftsmanship during the industrial revolution. Now, CovetED will show you a series of design products that have brought this notion back to life.

Today, rather than completely rejecting modern technology, artists and consumers alike can use the technology in their favour. They add a mix of the new techniques and materials with quality craftsmanship and one-of-a-kind pieces. This, in turn, allows many contemporary artists and designers to use the mastery of handcrafting on their pieces giving them more value and individuality.

 

In opposition to mass consumerism and copycat products, today there are many brands and artists who are working to create unique, hand-crafted ceramics, textiles, and furniture, each with their own unique approach and materials. They value the traditional crafts of the past, but still with a modern twist.

This collection of furniture celebrates the vibrancy of Brazilian culture. Inspired by the Cangaço, a nomadic group of bandits who roamed the Northeast of Brazil in the 19th and early 20th century, the collection features intricate leatherwork in the folk-style of the hats, boots and vests worn by the outlaws.

Crinoline is an innovation in taste. An opening. A product that encloses all of the sensitivity of a team working in collaboration with the B&B Italia Research and Development Centre.

The Happy Room for Fendi by Cristina Celestino

 

A place of intimacy and excellence, for a private, personal experience. A space that brings value to time devoted to oneself, where the concept of time is understood as an intrinsic design virtue of the various pieces (the time required to produce finely crafted objects).

The collection stands out for a colour palette inspired by the interiors of the great master Gio Ponti for Villa Planchart in Caracas. The forms are harmonious and rounded – recurring characteristics in the designer’s language – and every item, from tables to chairs, screens to mirrors, lamps to dressing tables, stands out for a particular focus on the use of materials, colours and skilled craftsmanship.

A tribute to tradition, but with innovative research and experimentation, which Cristina has applied in the invention of a new material, “ETERE”, obtained by treating fur with resin to create the two end panels of the screen. Light, flowing fur becomes solid, captured inside transparent resin, almost glazed while conserving its soft image.

There are two European ceramic cultures, the Dutch Delft Blue and the Portuguese Cobalt Blue ceramics, that find a common ancestor in Chinese Ming porcelain.  From this shared history and heritage, the Blue Ming collection (2016) forges a new yet connected language of artistic contemporary expression.

These exclusive porcelain items combine the highest quality and functionality with sculptural elements. Additional tulip-shaped and leaf motifs complement the elegant blue graphics in some pieces. The collection includes a big teacup and saucer, the espresso cup and saucer, a teapot and sugar pot, a fruit bowl, soup terrine and a range of plates. Furthermore, an iconic candleholder and flower vase offer unique versatility. With grace and beauty, the glassware portion of the collection (2018) includes a whiskey bottle, decanter, water carafe, high-balls and low-balls that stand as a harmonious combination of tradition and modernity.
