Visitors are in for a treat for the third year running at Vivienne Westwood’s flagship store in Milan during this year’s Milan Design Week. Hosting an innovative design collaboration between The Cass, London Metropolitan University, Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, and London-based design brand and studio, Tiipoi, Alchemy: Material Obsessions is an exhibition exploring the magic of making.
Both The Cass and Tiipoi are fascinated with the tradition of making and how raw materials are used to create a final object. The exhibition puts the master craftsman under the spotlight, and so alongside exhibits of furniture and objects, there will also be live demonstrations of making in the store showing how materials are transformed by the maker’s hands into incredible objects of beauty.
Alchemy: Material Obsessions at Vivienne Westwood Milan, Corso Venezia 25, Milan, 13- 18 April 2015
