Everything is Connected – Norway’s new exhibition for Milan 2017

Do you remember Structure? I think it was one of the highlights in Milan last year. You can see my post here. This year Everything is Connected is a Portrait of Norwegian Craft and Design Culture. It’s just as stunning, if not even better than last years exhibition.

Showing at Ventura Lambrate, Everyting is Connected was curated by designer and interior architect Katrin Greiling, Everything is Connected brings together the biggest contemporary talents in Norwegian design and craft to tell the story of the country’s creative scene today.

“Everything is Connected seeks to present design and craft in the context of their creation, considering each piece’s place within Norway’s infrastructure of production facilities, workshops,  materials access and innovation, personal networks, logistics and educational programmes. A designer or craftsperson, after all, is not an island, separate from their society, but a part of a broader cultural narrative in which everything is connected.”

The team behind Structure (named one of Dezeen’s 10 ‘unmissable exhibitions’ at Milan 2016) have joined forces once more for Everything is Connected: Norwegian designers’ union Klubben; DOGA Design and Architecture Norway campaigning national craft resource Norwegian Crafts; and Jotun, one of the world’s most respected paint manufacturers.

‘Norway is such a good example of how to nurture the design and craft industries, acknowledging their impact on the national image. I want to highlight the importance of dialogue between craftspeople, designers and industry and explore how this
conversation could be fed.’

The styling is perfect and the colours bold. Did you notice the Lundh’s real stone here? I think it’s great to see natural elements as a big part of this project. Now, let’s take a look.
