Vernacular is a new show for LDF produced by the Crafts Council of Ireland. A follow-up to last years show ‘A Place To Gather’ curated by our creative director. We are delighted that our Carafe & Glasses are present as part of a new mix of work from over 20 of Ireland's leading designers and makers. The curation offers a selection of work in which indigenous materials and processes combine in intelligent collaboration with design, to express an intrinsic and authentic story, a story about Irish design.
Curated by Ann Mulrooney and with exhibition design by Steven McNamara, the show is a tribute to the Kilkenny Design Workshops. A tribute to a time when the Irish state ran one of the world's finest multi-disciplinary creative agencies. A forgotten moment in our design history that is in much need of investigation. It was a moment when we did it right.
The exhibition is located at Old Truman Brewery, Gallery 13, from the 19th - 22nd September.
