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 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. The exhibition is curated and designed by Danish designer Henrik Vibskov.

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.

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, Lærke Valum, 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’.
