The idea behind MINDCRAFT is to explore the span between experimenting, innovative and conceptual design and sublime artistic and technical proficiency in Danish craft and design.

‘We chose the theme “In Between” because it reflects the fact that Danish craftspeople and designers work in a field of tension in between mind and craft. This exhibition covers the full range of that span, including fully developed ideas, conceptual qualities and sublime artistic and technical accomplishments, coupled with a unique understanding of the materials,’ says Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, who make up GamFratesi.
