Exhibition at Cranbrook Art Museum: ‘Material Workshop: Cranbrook for Alessi’ in March 2012


This exhibition features prototypes created in a collaborative workshop initiated by the Italian manufacturer Alessi with Cranbrook Academy of Art’s Metalsmithing and 3D Design programs. The 2009 workshop brought artists and designers together in the metalsmithing studio for a week of open-ended material investigations to explore metal forms and techniques. The prototypes are a mixture of material studies, product proposals and pre-production samples that demonstrate both the hands-on craft methods and the design methods used by the group. Four new Cranbrook designs are approved for production to be launched in the latter half of 2012.
