EXHIBITING DESIGNERS AND ARTISTS:Frederik Nystrup-Larsen & Oliver Sundqvist / Kasper Kjeldgaard / Stine Mikkelsen / Bahraini—Danish / 91-92 / Else-Rikke Bruun / Rasmus Fenhann / Stine Bidstrup / Archival Studies / Mette Schelde /
91-92 — Ctenophora Vase, Echinoidea Bowl, Morning Dip Side Table
An exploration of 3D printing towards a shift in production and distribution of interior products. A model based on locality, technology and responsible use of material.
Archival Studies — Chair 02
Constructed from standard 12mm interior-grade pine plywood, Chair 02 contains the texture and visual identity of the process in which it was produced.
Bahraini—Danish — Bench 01 and Bedside Tables
Notions of craft and technology melds together with historical and cultural connections to basic dwelling and the built environment.
Else-Rikke Bruun — Textile Veneer
The simple, yet technically complex composition undulates across space, creating a piece that interacts with light and shadow.
Frederik Nystrup-Larsen & Oliver Sundqvist — 300kg Beauty Bath
An almost archetypal construction consisting of structural posts and beams, clad in a series of highly textured cast aluminium panels.
Kasper Kjeldgaard — Suspense
Suspense operates as a functional object – a lamp – but also as a poetic sculptural configuration with a sense of spatial interaction and relevance.
Mette Schelde — Ombre Light
Inspired by clouds filtering sunlight, Ombre Light’s illumination taps into our bodies’ own sensory reactions to light and shadow.
Rasmus Fenhann — Ebano
A furniture piece that celebrates raw materiality and expert craftsmanship. The exterior of the cabinet is constructed from a stacked collection of old off-cuts.
Stine Bidstrup — Architectural Glass Fantasies
Mold-blown glass overlays digitally printed patterns to present models of a sculptural architectural landscape. A glimpse into a vibrant vision of a dreamed society.
In 2021, due to the current international limitations and constraints, we have experimented with a digital exhibition format for the second time. The curated selection in The Mindcraft Project 2021 stretches across new digital fabrication methods and traditional refined craftsmanship as we present ten pioneering designers and studios with individual designer pages, videos, AR and a 3D experience.
The Mindcraft Project is a platform for explorative and experimental design from Denmark. Through communication and exhibitions, the ongoing project addresses issues of future relevance in a meeting between design, craftsmanship, art, architecture and technology.
