Tom Dixon's "Beat Light Fat" lampes are inspired by traditional brass cooking pots. The pieces have been batted into shape by hand by northern Indian craftsmen, and are 30% industry and 70% craft.

Matthias Ferwagner’s “Minimato” is a no-glue-no-screws system that is easy to produce. Together with an untreated walnut top , the table is 37% industry and 63% craft work.

“Kelvin” by Antonio Citterio & T. Nguyen (produced by Flos) is a recyclable aluminum and steel lamp with shining LEDs. It is made using 87% industry and 13% craft.

The “Oak Chair” by Dutch creative Piet Hein Eek is made from pieces of recycled wood. What results is a sustainable seat that is 27% industry and 73% craft.

The classic “Dyson Air Multiplier” table fan combines 92% of industrial and 8% of craft to create an innovative, energy-efficient refresher.

Japanese designer Shigeo Mashiro presented his biodegradable hand-made “Bud”, a series of stackable bowls made from milled magnolia. The set measures the use of 32% industry and 68% craft.

A lovely exhibition divided in three — one part filled with these grand examples, another part with post-war Japanese aluminum objects from a private collection and a fabrication process film — the Craft & Industry exhibition inspires everyone to re-think design.

The showroom will be open until the 28th of October — check it out if you are in Liege.
