“Envisions” exhibit at Milan focussed on process not product

At this year’s Milan design week, graduates from Design Academy Eindhoven exhibited a series of material explorations as opposed to finished products.envisions-exhibition-milan-design-week-2016_dezeen_936_3

The exhibition sought to contrast the focus on finished works usually seen at Milan exhibitions, creating a conversation about the steps that come before. It allowed the designers to demonstrate abstract early ideas in a way they hoped would result in new work and collaborations. envisions-exhibition-milan-design-week-2016_dezeen_936_1

“Envisions” was said to reflect a growing trend among young designers preferring to be seen as strong process thinkers and to work for bigger companies rather than becoming superstar soloists. See more of the exhibit here.
