Curators: Lidewij Edelkoort and Philippe Fimmano

This exhibition by Lidewij Edelkoort, a world-renowned trend forecaster, explores the experiments of a new generation of designers with materials and manufacturing processes. 
Design is turning to the human hand to give shape to a profound disarray that can no longer conceive of the often superfluous industrial design of previous decades. But after a period of arts & crafts, we see that the hand wants to adorn itself once again with the machine, the computer, the laboratory and the loom. Suddenly hand and machine join hands and produce astonishing objects and materials that prepare us for a future to be invented together. 
Thus designers buy or found real factories, develop collectives to share places and machines, work in an open source way and recycle the materials piled up in our lands and seas. They want to make something beautiful out of something ugly, by transforming data. The joy of manufacturing is palpable.

This birth of magical manufactures shows us the way to the nobility of ploughing, a nobility that can give meaning to man's integrity, the first fruits of what can save humanity from itself.

An original production of Lille Metropole 2020, World Design Capital.

Curators : Arc-en-rêve with Hart Berthelot, Fabienne Brugère, Christophe Catsaros and ’Agence Vu’

Expanding the scope of the term ?“design” to the world as a whole, used as a verb to qualify human action on the environment, is a way of giving ourselves the means to act. The exhibition ?“Uses of the world” invites us to consider social, environmental, architectural or agricultural alternatives that have been chosen across every continent ; enlightening experiences that allow us to think about and inhabit the world differently.
