MINDCRAFT17 DESIGN EXHIBITION AT SAN SIMPLICIANO CURATED BY HENRIK VIBSKOV

MINDCRAFT17 introduces the international design audience in Milan to 15 new works by some of Denmark’s leading craft makers and designers. This year the exhibition, curated and staged by the renowned Danish designer Henrik Vibskov, returns to the historic cloister San Simpliciano in the heart of Milan. 

Every year, more than 300,000 design aficionados visit the Milan Design Week, the world’s biggest design event. Again this year, the Danish Arts Foundation presents brand-new works by a select group of Danish craft makers and designers to the design-interested audience. Henrik Vibskov has won considerable international acclaim with his unique design universe and spectacularly staged fashion shows. Henrik has also been among the selected exhibitors in earlier MINDCRAFT exhibitions.

True to tradition, MINDCRAFT showcases a selection of the most talented names in Danish craft and design, including both new and established names. This year’s exhibition features 18 craft makers and designers who represent a wide range of practice areas, from ceramics and glass to furniture and fashion. Moreover, the event is aimed at promoting the opportunities of the participating designers and at profiling Danish craft and design to national and international opinion leaders, press, manufacturers and other professionals in the field.

This year’s participants are:
Tobias Møhl, Yuki Ferdinandsen, Eske Rex and Maria Mengel, Birk Marcus Hansen, Emil Krøyer and Mads Sætter-Lassen, Anne Dorthe Vester and Maria Bruun, Kasper Kjeldgaard, LærkeValum, Marianne Eriksen Scott-Hansen, Isabel Berglund, Hanne G, Anders Ruhwald, Christina Schou Christensen, Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen, and Carl Emil Jacobsen.

With MINDCRAFT17, the exhibition returns to the historic cloister San Simpliciano, the venue of the 2015 exhibition. In 2015, the spectacular scenography drew international attention and received both a ‘Milano Design Award’ and a ‘German Design Award’. In 2008, the exhibition was recognized with a ‘Best of 100% Design Award’.

#TEAMVIBS: SAY HI TO ANDREA!TEAMVIBS: SAY HI TO SUNNA!

#TEAMVIBS: SAY HI TO ANDREA!TEAMVIBS: SAY HI TO SUNNA!

Say hi to Sunna, the versatile source of creativity, helping grow the icelandic population of #teamVIBS. Graduated from biology and having a diploma from contemporary dance, recently she ended up studying fashion design to follow her lifetime passion. Read more about Sunna in the last part of our interview series and find out what she recommends from Henrik Visbkov Boutique.

Hey Sunna! Tell us something more about you and your background?
I’m from Iceland and moved to Copenhagen a year ago to study Sustainable Fashion at KEA. Before I graduated with a B.S. degree in biology and a diploma in contemporary dance at the same time. I felt like I needed to have my life figured out and sorted what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So I took kind of a break from life responsibilities, focusing on my hobby which was sewing and decided to study clothing technology, a preperation study for tailoring. It was there, everything made sense and I figured my life out, or at least my next step in life.

Why design?
Design has always been a big part of my life. Whether it was designing something for myself at home or going to an art museum, I’ve always found art and design so fascinating. Design is a way to express everyday feelings, thoughts and emotions. It is something put in shape or words that people can often relate to and it awakens amounts of questions. That is why the world of art and design is so important to us. When I realized that you can actually work with your hobby, that is also your biggest passion in life, I felt kind of relieved.

What brought you to Henrik Vibskov? Is there any particular reason why did you decide to apply?
Actually I got to know Henrik Vibskov brand through my cousin Klara who did an internship at Vibskov and now she is working there. She told me how amazing place it was - and still is, and what kind of different stuff they do. That made me really interested, knowing that I would learn a lot and especially I’d be surrounded by talented people and having lots of fun there.

Tell us a secret from the studio? We won’t tell Henrik. What happens in the studio, stays in the studio.

How do you like Copenhagen so far? Any favorite spots to recommend?
I love Copenhagen. It’s so full of life and you can discover something new every single day. I love biking around the city, even when it’s raining (and I’m such a cat when it comes to rain, hate it). My favorite cafés are Kompa 9 close to Strøget and Café Plenum in Nørrebro. Their warmed cranberry drink is what to die for and the homemade lemon-ginger tea is one of my favorites. Café Plenum is located next to Elmegade which is one of my favorite spots in Nørrebro, full of cafés and small stores. Not least, Nicecream is a ‘must visit’ in the summertime in Elmegade, best vegan icecream that can be found on earth.
