During the same
period of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016, the European Cultural
Centre presents its exhibition "VENICE
DESIGN 2016" in one of its prestigious Palazzi
in Venice, Palazzo Michiel.
VENICE DESIGN 2016 is
one of the first exhibitions to show current design developments during the
Venice Architecture Biennale. It brings
together international set of designers of diverse cultural background, young,
senior, established and emerging.
The exhibition aims
to demonstrate that design might have a bigger canvas than just creating
beautiful functional objects. It is a chance for the spectators to see clever,
unexpected solutions for the use of space and also to create a more conscious
relation towards the daily surrounding and help to enlarge the awareness for
the extraordinary impact design has on the way humans feel, reason and behave -
in short, on their existence.
Participants from 17
countries come to present their ideas and stories: from the use of traditional
1000-year old techniques in modern days to the most innovative technological
solutions available. Their work shows how
powerful an everyday piece can be and its ability to express and represent
rituals, cultural particularities and embody human emotions.
