The Piet Zwart Institute presented last week the work of students from the Master of Interior Architecture and Retail Design (MIARD) programme at Ventura Lambrate from April 17 – 22 2012. Click below for an impression of the exhibition.

An exhibition that presents international design talent, simultaneously with the 51st Salone Internazionale del Mobile. The concept of the exhibition ‘FABRIKAAT' was organised around the idea of the (re)emerging role of the ‘domestic garden' through a ‘research through making' approach to design and craft.

The exhibition was planned as an immersive 35m2 greenhouse environment. The exhibited work is part of MIARD's educational programme. Through various processes of making and an exploration of materials and applications, the final full-scale projects will be defined. Both hand and digital craft will be explored to study the behavior of materials, form, structure, scale and function as ‘integrated systems' for both interior and exterior application.

The exhibition was divided into two parts: part one showed the process and experimentation of the work; part two was showcase four completed full-scale projects that have emerged based on the research of part one.
