Spazio Fendi, Design Miami
Design Miami/ and FENDI present Craft Punk a series of design performances at Spazio FENDI during the Salone del Mobile.
As an extension of the Design Miami/Design Performances, Craft Punk will feature a selection of innovative designers working onsite with traditional handcraft methods to create nonconformist, cutting-edge objects, installations, and encounters.
The international roster of designers includes: Kwangho Lee, Massimiliano Adami, Nacho Carbonell, Peter Marigold, Raw-Edges, Sarah Becker, Simon Hasan, Studio Glithero, Studio Libertiny, and Yuri Suzuki & Household.
Each designer is invited to use discarded materials from the FENDI production process, such as Selleria leather, branded fabrics, plastic decorative elements, and metal hardware.
The design performances will bring together music, video, live demonstrations and conversation, transforming the 750㎡ Spazio FENDI into an active environment for social interaction, unruly intellectual inquiry and action-based design processes.
