A 2-day workshop is being organized as part of the departure/MAK cooperation design> neue strategien in which participants can get to know the Parisian artists design practice, whose sometimes purely conceptual works are rooted in the contexts of art as well as design. With the motto Personal Anchoring and Strong Identification, she is using the environment provided by the MAK exhibition NOMADIC FURNITURE 3.0 New Liberated Living? (14 June6 October 2013) and the work she created for it, Root n Books. An Identity Anchor in Nomadic Times, which she is discussing with the public as part of a d>talk within the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, and which is the impulse for this workshop.
Matali Crasset is a designer with a studio in Paris; her portfolio encompasses everything from industrial design and architecture to interior design and graphics. Despite in-depth research, she leaves plenty of scope in her work method for a naïve perspective on everyday and future scenarios and for experimentation. This results in extremely individual and unusual designs that are commercially implemented by firms such as Edra, Artemide and Authentics, etc., as well as installations in the art space, as at present with Voyage to Ochronia! in the Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris. matalicrasset.com
The workshop is designed to appeal to pre-graduation students and to starters in design and the creative industries who are fascinated by interdisciplinary work. Please apply for the workshop, which is limited to a maximum of 20 participants, with a motivation letter of maximally 500 characters to firstname.lastname@example.org by 23 September 2013. Participation is free of charge. Any costs for material, if not available in the workshop, are to be borne by the participants.
