The highly acclaimed exhibition Doppia Firma is presented at the first edition of “Tresor-contemporary craft”, a showcase of high-quality applied arts which takes place in Basel from 21 to 24 September. The project is developed by the Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship, the Cologni Foundation for the Métiers d'Art and Living magazine published by the Corriere della Sera.
Doppia Firma brings together innovative European designers and distinguished Italian artisans to create a unique collection of 15 original works. They carry two signatures – hence the name Doppia Firma – as each is the unique outcome of the collaboration between a designer and a skilled artisan. The 2017 edition of Doppia Firma was met with critical acclaim during Milan Design Week and London Craft Week. This is the second edition of this successful format, which provides a platform for a vibrant dialogue between artisans and designers to develop new works that combine the finest craft skills and contemporary design culture.
“Tresor-contemporary craft” features galleries specialising in applied arts worldwide, first-rate artists as well as promising young talent..
