Tresor: contemporary craft
The highly acclaimed Doppia Firma exhibition will be presented at the first edition of “Tresor contemporary craft”, a unique fair for high-quality applied arts which will be held on 21-24 September in Basel. Doppia Firma brings together innovative European designers and excellent Italian artisans to create a unique collection of 15 original works. They carry two signatures – doppia firma – as each is the outcome of the collaboration between a designer and a uniquely skilled artisan.
This is the second edition of this successful format. Doppia Firma provides a platform for a vibrant dialogue between artisans and designers to develop new works that combine the finest crafts expertise and contemporary design culture. It offers artisans the chance to explore new realms of expression and designers an opportunity to be inspired by new techniques, materials and practices, securing their futures and inspiring a cultural movement of excellence. The project was developed by the Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship, the Cologni Foundation for the Metiers d'Art and Living Corriere della Sera. The 2017 edition was met with critical acclaim during Milan Design Week and London Craft Week.
