Danish Crafts presented MINDCRAFT12 in Ventura Lambrate during the Fuori Salone, 2012. The exhibition was curated by Cecilie Manz.
MINDCRAFT12 showed 16 new works created by some of the finest Danish craftspeople and designers within their field. A common feature for all the selected participants were their focus on quality and their approach to the design process, where function and materials play an essential role. This year's exhibition covered a wide span: From one-off works to prototypes ready for production.
