‘Liminal – Irish design at the threshold’ showcasing now their mesmerising collection at Dutch Design Week 2015 from 17th till 25th October 2015, Eindhoven.
Irish design is represented for the first time at Dutch Design Week, Eindhoven, as part of the evolving flagship design exhibition for Irish Design 2015 (ID2015).
Liminal – Irish design at the threshold features over 20 designers, architects, companies and studios involved in collaborations across disciplines, as part of ID2015, a yearlong initiative backed by the Irish government promoting and celebrating Irish design in Ireland and internationally.
Following its inaugural run at Milan Design Week in April, where the exhibition was billed by publications as one of two highlights of Zona Tortona, Liminal – Irish design at the threshold received widespread acclaim from international audiences in New York during NYC Design in May, and was included by international design publications in their highlights of New York City’s official citywide celebration of design.
Taking the theme of liminality, which refers to spaces that lie between the known and the unknown, this exhibition presents a pivotal chapter in Irish design. It explores the craft of collaboration across disciplines, presenting the exploratory journeys undertaken by designers. Moving through a series of design venues the exhibition demonstrates Irish design excellence across disciplines and considers the possibilities for the future.
With a breadth of disciplines ranging from the tech start-ups of Dublin’s silicon docks, through to architectural innovation and woven textile manufacture, Ireland today tells a fascinating story of design on the edge and design between the boundaries. click here to read full article…
