De Sede at this year's Designers' Saturday
In collaboration with the Italian born and London based designer and artist Martino Gamper, known for his impromtu interventions on everyday objects, the Swiss manufacturer De Sede realised ‘Playing with Leather in Space – A Leather Act’ – an exhibition which was presented at this year’s Designers’ Saturday in Langenthal, Switzerland for the first time. With a large range of experimental drafts Martino Gamper fearlessly created variations of noted De Sede classics and presented a successful interplay of high quality craftsmanship and visionary solutions.
Designers' Saturday in Langenthal
Every other year, the small Swiss town of Langenthal hosts a rather special design event – Designers’ Saturday. The exhibition (whose name is somewhat of a misnomer, as it runs for a full weekend) places an emphasis on a creatively led, site-specific presentation of design products, rather than the usual platform of you-could-be-anywhere fair stands. Mise-en-scène is the name of the game here. Manufacturers, designers and design schools compete to show in one of the six industrial and architecturally fascinating venues located around the town, each using their assigned space to create an intervention, a presentation of their work in dialogue with its physical context. Here’s our selection of the most successful projects.
