Jennifer Collier’s work featured in Milan Design Week!

Posted

From the archives…

A few weeks ago we were approached by a multi disciplinary design studio from Germany in charge of designing an exhibition stand for furniture makers Walter Knoll. This wasn’t a stand like those we’re used to at the Craft Festival, or any of the other big UK craft events – this was a 370 square meter display for Salone Internazionale del Mobile for Milan Design Week! Walter Knoll is an internationally renowned furniture company who are passionate about high quality craftsmanship and design, and they were looking for artwork to compliment their furniture and capture their ethos.

The artwork and furniture together needed to tell a story to the visitor, and the design studio – Ippolito Fleitz Group – and the team at the German office of Walter Knoll had fallen in love with the work of one of our Makers – paper artist Jennifer Collier. They ordered several pieces for Milan, including a paper telephone, typewriter, stilettos, teacups and saucers and binoculars. More than 350,000 people attended Milan Design Week and we’ve just received these fantastic pictures from the show…
